Not working and no response in Support
By , for WP 4.5.3

Did not work for me: "The new one cannot be stored due to non existing mysql_real_escape_string function". I see others with this error in the Support section, from as long as six months ago, with no response.

Not working on my multisite

Thanks for the plugin. I really wanted it to work though.

While logged in as super admin, clicking "Settings" beside the plugin name in the Plugins menu, it gives me this:

You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

Never had a problem with it

It is one of those plugins that just works and then sits quietly until you need it again.

Easy and effective

No problems!!!

Finally - after hours of looking for ways to change the accidental default admin name... this worked on the first shot! (I did create a second admin account just in case something went crazy).

I was not able to delete the first one - since it was the root / startup admin user (which tied my primary email up). this plugin fixed that!

great work!

Works perfectly in multisites, too

Thanks for this plugin!
In multisites with more than one network you have to activate it in all networks and change the admin logins.

Saves me a trip into PHPmyAdmin!
Remember you should deactivate or delete this plugin when done, don't leave it running on a live site! Just in case!

renamed user name simply and quickly

Worked but not perfect for network
By , for WP 3.5.2

Work as claim but not for network enabled. For sites, I need to hack into the submit button so the action goes to the site, not the main wp site.
