Why can't usernames be changed via the panel?

I want let to change users own username.

Why username is unchangeable?


As a workaround you can alter the user-file in \site\accounts\<username>.php I guess…

Just rename the file and it’s username: > value to the new username and you’re up and running.

But I’m not sure this is the proper way to do :slight_smile:

- sorry - the question was about doing this in the panel, not by hand…

@1n3JgKl9pQ6cUMrW: That can’t be done by the user via the panel, though, which is what the TO was asking.

This manual method already in my mind but if kirby has the feature, would be great! :wink:

If the username is fixed, you can grant access to parts of the website to individual users rather than by user role, so that might be a reason why it is not changeable via the panel. Just guessing, though.
