Edit Users Information

After the Super Administrator and other users have been added during installation, how do you edit their usernames and passwords, etc. within the Manage Users area of PowerCMS2 after installation. I only see the option to add new users.

Thanks,
Robert

On the manage users page, hover over the user name.

on the right hand side of the row, an edit, (pencil) and delete (cross) icons should appear.

Thanks Craig, I see that, sorry for not being completely clear. I would like to edit the super administrator information, which does not seem to have a "hover" state that revels any edit or delete options. How is that done (when I am logged in as the super admin) from within the the tool itself?

I think the values that I want to edit are "$WAGLOBAL_Admin_Password" and "$WAGLOBAL_Admin_Username", whose values are in the database from the initial install. So, other than editing the database directly via phpMyAdmin, how can I edit these values?

Also, I notice that the login for the super admin uses a "username" while for regular users it is an email address. Seems inconsistent, especially trying to explain the logic to a client. To be clear for my clients, I have added "email address" to the login page. Any particular reason for this inconsistency?

Thanks,
Robert

I think the super admin name and password settings are changed using the form on the settings tab

That is correct, the admin username and password would be changed in the settings tab.

As far as the email address and username is concerned, I'm not quite sure, but I would assume its a matter of different levels of users, so they're just handled differently.
