#11599 closed enhancement (duplicate)

change "admin" into some custom "name" on installation

one of the most common things after you finished your installation is to add a new user with admin-permissions. then you log-out, log-in again with your new admin-username and delete the "admin"-user to make it harder to hack your blog.

i would like to suggest to let the user choose his username on installation, to avoid hacking (on blogs where the owner is not aware of this security issue) for the one side of blog owners and make life a little bit easier/installation and configuration a bit faster for the more advanced users.
