Support » Fixing WordPress » Removing or editing users

  • I created a username for myself I didn’t want – how can I delete it as admin? Is there not some way for the admin to edit or delete users? All I see is the author IDs and their email and web addresses.

    Reduce the level of the unwanted to zero, then delete.
    That should be on the Users page.
    the red X sign… comes when the level is zero.

    That’s a bad way to remove – makes no sense. If you have the privilege to reduce that user’s level, it’s just a waste of time to make me lower it before I delete it. And, if someone has a high enough level that someone under them can’t remove them… you see some redundant comment coming on don’t you?

    I’m very new for WP just installed it on my web-hosted
    I’d also like to see option for editing user profiles.
    For examples, I changed the name from ‘site admin’ to
    ‘admin’, but would like to use some other nickname for it,
    or add web-site url for some user (I unchecked option
    for users to register themselves 🙂
    Am I missing option for editing users since the above discussion was about removing them?

    the only way i know of changing the admin’s nickname/login on the blog is through phpMyAdmin

    A curious update to this thread:

    when importing into WP 1.2.2 from MovableType, I tried to name the admin the same as another author (i.e. wanted to make that author the admin) — my result is that every author has been given the posts of the next author up. For example, all the posts originally authored by Geoffrey Coffey now are “by David Bailey,” while all Bailey’s posts are “by Andy Griffin” and Griffin’s posts are “by Tony Poer” … you see the problem?

    To edit these user names (so that the appropriate posts are given back to the correct authors), do I need to go into the database to do it? Sorry, MySQL is still new and scary for me…
