Can you change a member’s Username?
Oops, I posted this in the Activity stream by mistake the first time
WHY are administrators prevented from changing someone’s Username? I suspect this is a WP restriction more than BP but, as I think about it, I can’t think of any real reason why such a restriction exists. Internal DB linkage between the user and his/her posts, etc are associated with the UID not the Username. Could it be that the check for a duplicate Username occurs only at the point of initial registration?
I’m just trying to think this through before I give it a try by making changes directly in the database.
So, WHY might one want to do this? I have a large number of people whom I’m adding to my blog and it’d be much easier for me to simply enter all of their information FIRST using a standard Username convention then allow them to change the username or request that the administrator make such a change.
