More about me and my plugins

Since the year 1999 I do administration, customizing and programming for several forums, communities and social networks. In the year 2013 I switched from another PHP framework to Wordpress. Because not all plugins I'd like to have exist already I wrote some own plugins and I think I'll continue to do so.

If you have the scope at forums or social networks my other modules might also be interesting for you. Just take a look at my Wordpress Profile to see all my Plugins. Use them and if my work helps you to save time, earn money or just makes you happy feel free to donate - Thanks. The donation link can be found at the right sidebar next to this text.

Is this safe to rename usernames?

Wordpress normally does not allow renaming usernames. You should now what you do. What this plugin does is that the fields "user_login" and "user_nicename" are overwritten with specified values for a selected user account.
