Excellent Work! Great plugin, super simple and easy. Surprised this is not in the WP Core...

Easy to change username

By romanivanov on March 18, 2021

I like how easy it changes username. Will be great if I could change user_nicename fields as well. Had to use another plugin for this: https://ru.wordpress.org/plugins/edit-author-slug/ It's too complex, I only want to type manual value, without having to study complex settings page.

Does what it should do

By dotch on November 15, 2020

I used the gif file on the screenshots section of the main plugin page for help. That's all. I changed the admin-name. All posts are automatically assigned to the new user. Everything else, like e-mail address, password stays the same.

Works perfect

This plugin saved me the whole process of going to PHPmyadmin to make these username changes.
