  • I want to change the username attached to my profile for logging into the wordpress forums. I know how to edit my profile info, but not the username. It says for questions to contact the forum administrator (or something to that effect) – but there’s no contact info. Please help. Thank you.

  • Hello,

    Yeah, you can’t actually do it from the wordpress admin area, for whatever reason, but it is possible. You need access to phpMyAdmin.

    This thread has a bit more info:

    Thanks, but that’s not exactly what I meant. I was talking about my username on this site, to log in to the forums. I registered to be able to ask/answer questions to the forum. I guess I can just create another user account. FYI, I downloaded WordPress and installed it on our server. So there’s no problem in changing any profiles or profile names for the actual WordPress blog application itself. I’ll just create a new useraccount on I guess. Thanks.
