I love this idea and mod, but I've got a few worries... Let's say I have another admin, that doesn't have full admin abilities, but does have some like editing users. So he could easily go to his profile and edit it and add my profile to it without needing a password. Then he could get on my account and have all abilities. I think this needs to be changed! Make it so only the superadmin can add/disable linked accounts. And make it so other admins can only do it if they have the other account's password.

Love it.. Had used it a bit in past

Can you add the option for user group permission? I like to allow SMODs also to use it if I could like it was with vB 3 mod

Also, I noticed the drop down menu only shows up in Forum but not in CMS or Blogs


Thanks


EDIT: I just went ahead and linked each SMOD to other accounts from AdminCP and they now have the option to swich even as user.. Great


Thanks again

Even I as SuperAdmin can not link any account unless I know the password if I do it from UserCP... But from AdminCP you do not need the password.

My work around abuse is posted above.. I link accounts for whoever I want and they can use the feature without making the mod public



I hope this helps

If you (the Admin) link a user's accounts, he/she can switch between all linked accounts

not sure whether this is a bug;

I got 4 accounts using different styles; switching users do not change the styles

Profile Images set to unknown.gif

Hello,

I use this modification at all 3 of my boards and have used it for years and years. It's invaluable to my roleplaying groups since most members have multiple characters.

However, I have discovered a bug that seems to be linked to this mod in 4.06 (only one board on 4.06 right now).

When I view another member's profile page, their avatars and profile pictures show as the unknown.gif. This happens even when I look at my other account's profiles that are linked to my primary account. On the other hand, when I Quick Switch to the other account, I can then see the profile images with no issues.

Anyone else have this issue in 4.06 + ? Is there a fix for it ?

Regards,

Alisa

Update: Just discovered similar issue on 4.03. On 4.03, we can see the profile pictures but not the avatars, it goes to the default avatar image.

Please, can we get a fix?

Warmest Regards,

Alisa

I hate to bump my own issues...but still looking for an answer to this issue. I realize this mod is not supported, but this is a pretty major user-impacting bug.

Thanks and Regards,

Alisa

Hi I also run an RPG forum. I'm using this mod on 4.0.5, but I have experienced no such trouble with such an issue. I don't know if that narrows it down to what it might be for you, but I thought I would let you know just in case.
