How do I make them both the same????

The situation is this, a user desires to change his USERID at login to match a desired display name. Seems a fat-finger entry messed his login USERID

There is a method to change the display name. That is not a problem. The issue comes with changing the USERID needed to login.

As I see it, I can either delete the account and re-enter with the correct USERID or, I can edit the MySQL table to make the correction there.

Any other method that I am overlooking????

DOUBLE-CHECK THAT THE USER NUMBER IS CORRECT FOR THE USER YOU WANT TO GIVE THE NEW LOGIN NAME TO.

UPDATE ubbt_USERS
SET USER_LOGIN_NAME = 'newloginname'
WHERE USER_ID = 'usernumber'


newloginname = the new user name you want to update the user with
usernumber = the user's current member number. you can find this by viewing the number shown in the url of their user profile, and within that page.

example:
UPDATE ubbt_USERS
SET USER_LOGIN_NAME = 'SuperSteve'
WHERE USER_ID = '3372'

This SQL command would update your login name on UBBCentral.com to "SuperSteve" since your user number here is 3372.
