Hi Guys,

This is my first post and I have done the search thing but cannot find what I am looking for.

Is there a process to allow the admin to rename the login Id of a member after they have been created.

I know I can recreate them but then they lose their post count etc.

Just wondering if anyone knows how to rename say Admin to something else so that I can recreate the Admin user and have it locked away, e.g. not as a normal user.  Only use it for Admin purposes.

Cheers

Changing their user ID would require changing it in their member.vars file as well as the name of the file. However, their posts are all stored with this ID and it would cause all of their old posts to be "Ex Member" posts.

Unless you want to go through all the files on the site and change their ID to the new one  Tongue

So what you are telling me is that there is no utility or mod that will do it for me.
