Create a new user with moderator rights. Just use the admin for changes to the site.

I haven't seen the function the function also, but when installing it asks for the default admin name somewere.
And if you use IPB, then change your login name, then your login name on OCP will be changed also.

:D  Dont shoot the messenger!!  :D

I guess a warning in your line of work tends tomean 'run for cover'. Fortunately it's not so severe when it comes to computers ;).

Surprisingly, you can edit your own user account details in OCF too (if that's what you have installed). :P

Didnt know for sure, wanted to let my users get used to OCP first before i introduce them to OCF..

Philip, does that change the display name also? I know IPB doesnt change the display name, only the login name.
I thought i have seen somewere stating that Chris liked a function like that.

Yes. In OCF, the login name and displayed name are exactly the same. :)

If you have ocPortal set up without a forum or a membership system, you can go into the "base configuration" of ocPortal via the administration zone and edit the admin's username from there. :thumbs:

Personal Zone> Edit Profile>

Top line= Username ( edit name there)

Otherwise as most say keeping Admin as your overall account login is good and just make another name.

If you are logged in as an Admin then goto Content Management> Tools > Add member (here is where you can give a new name and also provide Admin access as you have for your admin account.
