Why can’t I update username through WordPress API?
I’m just wondering about usernames… Why isn’t is possible to change this through WordPress API? (I understand why a user in the admin dashboard can’t change username(s) but that isn’t really same thing!?)
Code below does just ignore the user_login – setting.
$pupil_obj= get_post($postid_pupil); $user_login = $pupil_obj->post_name; $user_nicename = $pupil_obj->post_name; $user_args = array( 'ID' => $current_user->ID, 'user_email' => $email, 'user_login' => $user_login, 'user_nicename' => $user_nicename ); wp_update_user( $user_args ) ;
I could update the username to the database directly through
$wpdb. This makes no sense to me. Can someone explain?
