    You’d need to edit your entry in the wp-users table using something like Phpmyadmin.

    Can’t you just use the “Display name publicly as” option in your profile, selecting nickname, of course entering a nickname beforehand is required..

    Would be less likely (to go wrong)…. 🙂

    You can of course go the database route, but it’s only going to aid in the login procedure… Nickname will work sufficiently for display purposes…

    Hi,

    You can not edit the username from wordpress admin area but you can do it only from database..for that you need to edit wp_users table and rename the username from table..

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    Is there an echo in here? 😐
