Please help me out :

* When creating a new site, the username is "admin"

* I tried changing it to my own name, but it says "username cannot be changed".

* I tried creating a new username as shown by Kyle, before deleting the "admin" name, but I get the message "email address already used - try a new address"

How can I change the username from admin to my own name ?

UPDATE
I am back in the training lessons and am busy following Kyle's training on this issue.
Should have done this in the first case, but I am spoiled by asking questions too quickly. Guilty as charged. :)
Gonna sort this out by myself. (I hope)

Followed your advice Anthony, but still not correct.
* I want it to display my own name and gravatar as on my other websites.
* I created a new user with a different email address, and tried to delete the current "admin" as a user, but the system will not allow me to do it.
I seem to recall that was the process shown in Kyle's lessons (as I described above) but now I cant get it right.
Serious case of brain freeze. :)

If the problem persists create a new email on gmail. ~Marion

Hi Marion,
Thanks for jumping in.
* I have tried the process by using another email address to create a new user with my own name.
* I then tried to delete the current user ("admin"), but got an error message.
Will just have to keep on trying.

You need to log out and then log in as the new user. You can't delete yourself while you're active. :)

I am watching the particular video again right now Marion.
I think it also has to do with the fact that I have not yet created any pages or posts, but not too sure about that.
Thanks for your personal intervention my friend.
I will holler if I get stuck again.
Have a great weekend.

You can only change the nickname and the display name in public. It should work correct Solidbase.
If you want to use the same email simply edit when logged into users.

Hope this helps.

The sky is the Limit,
Anthony
