Only Superadministrators can edit undeletables

I searched the forums and couldn't find anything quite like this, so I figured I'd share this simple little modification.

This is a VERY simple hack I implemented on my forum so that we could prevent other administrators from modifying other admins user accounts.

It works by simply bypassing the Undeleteable Check in /admincp/user.php if the currently logged in user is in the superadministrator list in /includes/config.php.

By doing this, you can put all your admins or other users in the Undeleteable catagory for account protection while still allowing them to be altered by a master administrator.

They can still update and change their profile via the UserCP, they just wont be able to modify their account via AdminCP.

Please note, I'm not a coder.. more of modifier, so I cannot guarantee that this will not have any unforseen and less than desirable side effects. If any of you know of a reason that this is a bad idea, please post. Otherwise, hopefully someone else can find this useful.


Instructions:


in /admincp/user.php
Find this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Now just open your /includes/config.php file and add the UID's of your undeletables and Superadministrators.


Thats it.
