Thanks for this addition, always great to see new work.
However, this seems almost exactly what Abe1's hack does or at least a couple of additional limits to Abe1's hack here:

I like this one except that in this one, any current admin could go to the vbulletin options and put their admin ID there, where as Abe1's limits it in the config so only the root admin can add their ID.

I like the hack, but mabye there is a way only root admin can add their ID and/or other ID's.

You can dissallow them to access vB settings:



Who can access all important settings I see no reason to dissallow him to use this hack too.

Cyb:

I added this to my postbit_legacy and postbit templates so I can login in from the pulldown menu with their username.

Look for:


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

and below this add


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

Do you think you could add the option of a link if you are logged in as another username you can click on that and sign back in with your own username?

Definitely VERY similar to my ‘Log in as User’ hack. The only difference is the settings that you put in which I thought were unnecessary, but may be coming in the future. My hack just does a lot better hiding that you logged in as that user.

(You can get the link to my hack in my sig.)

Just needs fixing so you can be able to go back to your own account without having to sign back in?
A "Click here to go back to your account" would be ideal. Nice hack btw.
