Admin renamer extended


Read this first https://wordpress.org/support/topic/better-plugins/
Plugin to change your default admin username ( with GUI to change all other admin names too ).
Tested on multisite
Will check for:
* Empty names
* Existing usernames
* Valid username ( no funky special characters )

As always -> make a backup first


  • Before rename
  • After rename


  1. Upload directory admin_renamer_extended to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Aktiviere das Plugin im ‚Plugins‘ Menu in WordPress.
  3. Visit Plugins menu to change your admin name(s).


I have a lot of questions and I want support where can I go?

http://pluginsupport.mijnpress.nl/ or drop me a tweet to notify me of your support topic over here.
I always check my tweets, so mention my name with @ramonfincken and your problem.



I dont know what people are crying about? It works excellent. I just installed and activated the plugin, went to the menu and instead of my regular admin-nick I just changed to a new nick and pressed update. Voila.. Done in 10 sec...

Not working and no response in Support

Did not work for me: "The new one cannot be stored due to non existing mysql_real_escape_string function". I see others with this error in the Support section, from as long as six months ago, with no response.

Not working on my multisite

Thanks for the plugin. I really wanted it to work though. While logged in as super admin, clicking "Settings" beside the plugin name in the Plugins menu, it gives me this: You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.
