    It can be renamed from the dashboard and you can change it's avatar without a problem by editing its profile. The system user ID is also set in the config file.

    Add Pages to Vanilla with the Basic Pages app

    No link to edit profile image :( in profile , it asks to give it a role ... I guess admin ?

    there is no system role ...

    Any role would work and the profile image upload is in the front end of the site.

  • @Todd @Lincoln What happens if we change the Vanilla Core to NOT recreate the system user (if the recreation script is in the core, which I'm guessing it is)?

  • @vrijvlinder said:

    I know this question is already answered, however, I think you could do a System Role with the same permissions as an Admin

    Please don't ping me to ask the equivalent of "what happens if I purposefully break Vanilla" - well then it'll be broken. I'm not going to list the consequences for you.
