Super useful to fix email typo's Customer fat fingered an order and consequently WP username was incorrect. Super easy fix as I wanted to edit the name rather than create another one. Love it! Thanks

Does what is says. Thank you for having updated it. Idea : choose role that have right to change username Idea : select users roles that can have their username changed 🙂

Works like a charm! I have over 20,000 users, and they can only log in using names and not emails. This tool allows me to rename any user that registered incorrectly; (emails).

This is a nice little plugin that can help admins change a user's username if needed. Since it can also send an email to the user, that saves some work as well, making updates fairly quick. One of our clients was generating usernames automatically from First Name and Last Name fields but married couples put in long strings and that made for unwieldy usernames. Out of the box the "Send the user an email about their updated username." feature does not work properly. Specifically, the plugin's "include/mail.php" file (esp. the "From" address) needs to be customized for your site. We ended up customizing the entire file for our use (including adding a "BCC" header so we get a copy of the email sent). If you do customize this file, you would be well-advised to store a copy of the file somewhere in case the original gets overwritten with a plugin update (or reinstall). Once mail.php is customized to your satisfaction, this is a great little tool.
