  • Change existing user ID

    I have a user who has decided that he doesn't like the user name he chose when he registered.

    Is there a way to change a user name?

    Can the user delete himself and re-register under a different name?

    From the documentation it seems that all I can do (as the adminstrator) is delete the user and tell him to re-regiser with another name.

    What happens to the posts that the users created under the old name?

    Thanks

    Yes, just change this users username via the AdminCP

    AdminCP > USers > Search for users > imput there user name, when it comes up, change the username to their new username that they want and update the correct counters.

      OK - I found the CP page for the user name.

      But, I'm not sure what you mean by "update the correct counters". The update page has a "post count" - update that?
