User name change

Aug 23, 2009 at 2:20 PM

When I created the users in BE, I didn't realize the username would be used in the RSS feed. I'd like to change it. I already attempted to edit the users.xml, roles.xml and posts to sync a new user name. This partially worked as the new user name was taken but upon login the only administrative control that was available was 'Change Password.' I could not edit or add posts,etc. Any ideas?

I'm not too familiar with the inner-workings of BE, but it sounds like your user permissions are not up to the admin level.

Perhaps the answer lies within you BE database?

I'm using XML files, not SQL, for now. The account is an Administrator. Once I rename it in the users.xml file and then replicate that change in the roles.xml files I lose my Administrator privileges, sort of.

If you make direct changes to files in the data store (e.g. users.xml, roles.xml, etc), in order for those changes to be detected and fully take effect, you'll want to restart the blog application.  The blog can be re-started by making any change to the web.config file (add a space, etc).

If you're still having these issues, I would then clear your browser cookies.
