Firstly, An absolutely excellent mod!

Secondly, is it possible to add the "Login as User" option to the Postbit (postbit_legacy in this case) popup menu that you get when you click on a users name when viewing a thread? If so, what do I need to do? I can see the section in the postbit_legacy template where the other popup options are, but I'm unsure as to exactly what to put in there to log the user in.

Clear all forum cookies, then re-login and try it again.

This has a problem. If I have my forums set to ask a user to change their password after a certain amount of days, it will not let me log in and them and get past "changing their password" which presents a problem.

Anyway, take care

vBulletin 3.8.2
AddOn 2.3

In AdminCP we have a quicklink "Login as User". It is from a hook "useradmin_edit_start" in admincp/user.cp. There ist a array $quicklinks.

But the same hook is in modcp/user.cp but there ist no array $quicklinks, So i got en error in ModCP/user search/show profil.

I have removed the hook on line 348

($hook = vBulletinHook::fetch_hook('useradmin_edit_start')) ? eval($hook) : false;
