admin account + security

    I’ve read that it might be more safe / secure to set up a new account other than “admin” — and I did so. Luckily, I kept my old admin and simply reduced the permissions, because I found the new admin account did not show a lot of my backend [e.g. my blogs], including the entire buddypress was not showing at all under the plugins section.

    I changed admin back to administrator — and everything was again visible (from that account).

    Is this a feature or a bug?

    You have to set a person to “admin” state in the backend by name, if you change the name, wpmu won’t recognize it as admin anymore.
