You can change your username here now

I found and enabled a setting that lets you change your username in Discourse, regardless of how it’s set in WordPress. Apparently the single-sign-on from WordPress relies on an ID, so changing the username shouldn’t break the connection in any way.

Once you’re logged in here, click your avatar in the upper-right corner and then click the little gear icon in the drop-down menu. The resulting preferences screen has your username on it, and you can click the pencil icon to open it for editing.

@tidbits1 Give this a try (though, ironically, as soon as you change it, this mention will break. :-))

cheers… -Adam

Great, that worked. Thanks!

I was aware of where these settings are, but I couldn’t edit the username yesterday. Did you make changes in the meantime?

Yes, there’s an “sso overrides username” setting. The initial thought was that it made sense to have a single source for all that information at WordPress, but once we saw it in action, it became clear that wasn’t ideal.

If there is ever a way to customize the email address notifications get sent to let me know. For now I’ve turned off all email notifications since I don’t want them in my personal email (which sends me notifications).

Just as with username, you should be able to customize the email address. Click your avatar, click the gear, and click the pencil icon next to your email address. Discourse says that your email address is never shown to the public.
