Plugin to change your default admin username ( with GUI to change all other admin names too ).
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!
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!
Easy to use. Very useful plugin , I'm so grateful to be able to change WP admin names so easily. Thanks for making it.
renamed user name simply and quickly
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.
I was getting a flood of lockout messages today from Theme My Login. Apparently, some bots have been hitting me pretty hard, and I had short-sightedly trimmed the lockout period to an hour. Sure enough, almost every hour on the hour, I was getting lockout messages.
I installed Admin Renamer Extended after a quick search and comparison with the other similar offerings, and couldn't be more pleased. All of my posts retained my public name, admin is gone forever, and the new username, well...it will be rather hard to guess.
Excellent job, and thanks, Ramon!
I used this plugin to avoid brute force attempts to login to my admin user. The plugin is very easy to use and in a few clicks you're done. I'd advice to backup your blog before installation of this plugin, just in case you lock yourself out.
As soon as I activated this plugin, the style in my WordPress admin area looked weird. Everything worked, but the style was clearly broken. The plugin let me change the username for the "admin" user. When I deactivated the plugin, the admin area style returned to normal.
I suspect the problem is caused by this plugin being quite outdated.
