#Change Username

The Change Username plugin allows you to change usernames of your WordPress users in an easy & effective way.

Existing plugins like "Username Changer" do not scale for sites with many users, pulling in all users at once and stuffing them in a single <select> element.

This plugin takes a different approach by simply modifying the default WordPress "edit user" page & processing the form over AJAX, resulting in a much leaner & faster experience.

Change Username

Please note: This plugin requires PHP version 5.3 or later.


Download the Change Username plugin from the WordPress.org plugin repository.
