What is Username Change?
Username Change is Brought to you by the Designer of products such as RPG Inferno and Inferno vBShout and the programmer of RPG Integration v3.

Username Change from DragonByte Tech is a modification designed to allow users to change their usernames at will (within your configured limits, of course).

About Username Change
Your members will no longer bug you for username changes, you can let them change it whenever they want!

It also has a history feature in the member profile, showing a list of previous usernames. This history feature uses vBulletin's own Profile Change history - no additional tables needed!

One thing I forgot to include in the original description:
Unlike previous Username Changes mods, I use vBulletin's own "profile change history" to fetch the history - no additional tables needed!

Is it possible to have only a certain UserGroup be able to edit the username? I have a 100k+ forum and I'm the only one who can do it currently (through AdminCP), but I want my moderators to be able to update people's user names. Or better yet, is there a plugin that allows certain usergroups update user profiles? Currently vB allows moderators to login to ModCP but they cannot save any profile.

Thanks

Yeah, that's entirely possible, the usergroup permissions lets you control who can change their own (or others') usernames

I do not see how to change the username from the user cp.

Edit: It is under EDIT PROFILE.
Might want to clarify above.

That happens because of the way the area is automatically added to the templates (to avoid template edits).
I'm not sure if this can be fixed

Is it possible to specify which usergroups can change their usernames on their own?

Yes, you can set different options per usergroup including who can change their own username, who can change other peoples, and how often they can change their username =)

This mod is designed for letting people change their usernames more often than once, though.
I'd recommend just setting the days option to an absurdly high number

I just installed this and went into my profile. It says I changed my username on 2/14, but I didn't... is there a way to reset the last time someone changed their name?
