Takes a split second to change the username which otherwise would be a tedious procedure, whether through WordPress admin console or through phpMyAdmin.

Like the reviewers before me said, I selected the current username from a dropdown, filled the new username in a box and it's done.

Highly recommended.

A real problem-solver for Admins

This is a plug-in that nearly every Administrator would value. This means that if someone on your family WordPress site creates an account with either a cryptic or abbreviated name, or something silly like 'motorhead,' or even if you would like your list of a few dozen or a few hundred names to be consistent in their format, you can edit the exceptions easily and achieve that consistency. I hope the plug-in's authors keep it up-to-date. It's a little thing you likely won't use too often after the first time, but it is certainly nice to know that you have the tool in your tool box. Also, don't forget to let the edited user names know what their new username is, and that it is the combination of their new username and existing password that allows them access to the site.

Excellent plugin

Great plugin! You can select from a dropdown wich user you want to change and just that!

I like this plugin better than the other Username Change solutions... why?
By , for WP 3.9

First, I don't see why this plugin has less than 5 stars and I hope my review puts this plugin at 5 stars. I have been using it since WordPress 3.8 and on WordPress 3.9 it work fines. Plus the security issue has been taken care of - See > here.

Also it has been mad Multi-site compatible. see > here.

I felt to leave a review because it is better than the other username changing plugins and here is why.

1. You can select any User;s Username from a drop down list and then change enter a new username in place of it.

2. The plugin is found under a sensible place Users > Username Changer.
- Other plugins take a main parent place and force their menu item even above the pages and menu... what for?

3. This plugin also adds a change username link in the user table list. So, if you are searching for you user by gravatar by chance I suppose it will be easy as well to locate that user and go directly to changing their username.

There isn't much more to say. This plugin works.

The only thing I can think of that I didn't see this plugin mention is that it checks your desired Username change against already registered users to make sure the name is unique. That is very important, though I haven't ran into that scenario yet.
