Change Username

  1. I am trying to change my username. However, the bar in which my username is in is gray and will not allow changes. Can I still change it? If so, how?

    The blog I need help with is kcastowjmc2017.wordpress.com.

  2. It's not straightforward, you could create a new username, and then when deleting the old, attribute all to the new username. Alternatively, you could use a plugin such as: https://wordpress.org/plugins/username-changer/

  3. @thereadinglyreview are you following this guide to change your username? https://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/

    Keep in mind that changing your username is irreversible, so make sure that's what you want to do.

    If you are still having a problem with this, please post back in this forum thread and let us know. We'll then tag it for Staff assistance.

  4. @mdchee Hello again, please be aware that these forums are for users of the fully hosted WordPressdotcom platform, which is different than WordPress.org. https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    The only users on WordPressdotcom who can install external plugins are those with the Business plan upgrade. https://wordpress.com/pricing/

    If you have any questions about this, feel free to open your own new forum thread and someone will be happy to answer.

  5. @justjennifer Thank you. I'll take a look.

  6. I have tried https://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/
    The username bar will allow no changes to be made. I'm not sure why it's this way, but I just want to change my username.

  7. I think I see the problem. I've just emailed & will hope to hear back from you there. Cheers :)
