    Change the admin user name, by ffwebdesigner

    Hi guys,

    we’re running wp 4.8.5. as a multisite with different login groups through UAM plugin. Some “hacker” got the admin user name by adding ?author=1 to the site url. With that one they try to invade our page from Russia, Turkey and more. As a matter of security we installed WPfence to disable the ?author hack. We also need to change the admin user name.

    I did this straight in mysql, changed admin name and under _users and _site_meta. New login is working, but we don’t see any network links (administration for the other sites of the multisite installations, plugins, settings) plus in the admin bar we don’t see the account info plus logout anymore. Tried some plugins to change the name to. No success.

    Anybody knows how to fix this?
