Fan in action


In my 2nd ocPortal site I have installed it without the members module. I set my admin username as admin but want to change it now because when I post a blog post I want the post to show authorship from a more personal name, my name, as opposed to 'new post by admin'.

I had the same issue with my other site but it worked out that i created a new user as I had member module installed and write my blog posts from this account with my name.

I have had a search through documentation and checked through configuration for where to (if i can?) change the name of my admin account, but I thought it best to ask at this point. Also in relation to this, even though people can't join this site and it appears I can't create new users either, obviously,... can I create another admin account?
