Admin username changer
Using on a Multisite Installation (1 post)

    Changing the username of a super-admin of a multisite network appears to remove the "super" status, meaning that access to the network dashboard is blocked.

    Workaround: (you are starting as "superadmin")
    create "newuser", a new user.
    give "newuser" super-admin status
    Install this plugin
    change "superadmin" to ""changedadmin" using the option in the dashboard of the main blog.
    Log out - this was tricky, actually.
    Log in as "newuser"
    give "changedadmin" back the super-admin status.
    Test everything
    delete "newuser" or better still keep it in reserve!

    Hope this helps!
