Solved Can't change the username on forum

Post by The Wicked Angel on August 12th 2014, 3:45 pm

Seems like this is just one day with problems for little me.
Now I have another problem with my forum, and that is that I can't not change my username to anything else but Admin, since I am working on a role play page it not really the right name to use on the page, and everytime when I try to change the username it just stay as Admin. I know I have set the option to the right point and I still can't change it not matter what I do.
What can I do, shall I try to change the username with another browser or do I just keep trying?

So you've went into ACP --> Users and Groups --> clicked on the profile admin --> Entered a new username in the box--> Changed it?

What about my users, as they begin to join the page they eventually have to change the names as will, you know if I get a multi off user with the same, name just with a letter for last name, how will they change the names, because it will get stress full if I as the admin will have change the name for each and every user?

ACP --> Users and Groups --> User Options --> Allow users to change their username --> Yes but that'll allow them to change their username as often and as frequently as they wish.

I'm sorry but their is no other system.
