The “Username Update” plugin enhances the default username editing functionality in WordPress by providing an additional feature to send an email notification when a user’s username is updated. This plugin is useful in scenarios where administrators or users need to change their usernames and notify the user about the update.
* Username Editing: The plugin adds a new field in the user profile editing screen where administrators or users can enter a new username.
Username Validation: The entered username is validated to ensure it meets the required criteria. If the username is invalid, an error message is displayed.
Username Availability: The plugin checks if the new username is already taken by another user. If the username is unavailable, an error message is shown, prompting the user to choose a different username.
Email Notification: Upon successful username update, the plugin sends an email notification to the user with the updated username. This helps in keeping users informed about the changes made to their accounts.
Admin Notice: The plugin displays an admin notice to provide feedback on the username update process. If there are any validation errors or if the username already exists, appropriate error messages are displayed as admin notices.
Overall, the “Username Update” plugin enhances the user profile editing experience in WordPress by allowing easy and secure username changes while keeping users informed via email notifications. It ensures smooth validation, error handling, and admin notices for a seamless user experience.
