Allow Members to Change their Username

By default, WordPress doesn't allow users to change their username once their account is created. MemberMouse bypasses this restriction and allows members to change their username from the My Account page or when signing up.

If you configure MemberMouse to do this, it will automatically add a username field to the My Account page.

How to configure if members can change their username
  1. From the MemberMouse menugo to General Settings, and then click on the Other Settings tab.

  2. Scroll down to the WordPress User Options section.

  3. To allow members to change their username from the My Account page, check the box. If you don't want members to be able to change their username, uncheck the box.

  4. Click the Save Settings button to save your settings.

NOTE: If you have configured it so that members can change their username, you will also have to include the following SmartTag™ in your checkout form(s):

[MM_Form_Field name='username']

In order for this to work correctly make sure that you place the SmartTag™ between the Form type='checkout' and /MM_Form SmartTags™. After this SmartTag™ has been included in the checkout form, MemberMouse will require that this field be filled out before allowing the form to be submitted.
