Description

When we install WordPress, it says "Please provide the following information. Don't worry, you can always change these settings later."

But When we want to change username, WordPress does not allow. See screenshots.

  • Component changed from Text Changes to Upgrade/Install
  • Keywords needs-patch added; has-patch has-screenshots dev-feedback removed
  • Severity changed from normal to minor
  • Version changed from trunk to 4.8.2

Agreed that the wording could be better here. Will look into this.

  • Keywords has-patch has-screenshots added; needs-patch removed

It's true that usernames cannot be changed easily, but that's why we have a separate Display Name setting.

Let's see if we can come up with a better wording.

I've added a patch that says some fields can be and also some bold text that explicitly says usernames can't be. Will upload a screenshot of an example in a second.

you can change some of these settings later

How about "most of these settings"? Site Title, Password, Email, Site Visibility can all be changed, only username cannot.
