Support » Plugin: Username » Works as advertised

  • This is my go-to change username plugin for all wordpress sites. Often clients and friends set up WordPress before they know how they want it to look or feel. They choose usernames based on habit or screen name. For minor security (through obscurity) reasons I do not want admins, editors and authors logging in with their published screen name. Every WP blog has bots trying to brute force the login page. This along with “Edit Author Slug” plugin allows me to hide that information from search engines and bad guys.

    Note the username you want to change must be an admin for this plugin to work. I upgrade Editors, Authors and Subscribers to Admins, login as them an then change the username and downgrade back to previous role. This also lets me check the password is not too easy.
