I have the hack installed, I noticed I can log into users accounts just fine. The problem is logging back into the admin account.

Half the time it says it is logging back in, and then just leaves me logged in as the user.

Do you think this is a cookie issue?

Cyb, today i found an error on your hack

when i try to edit an user account (in ACP) i've got this:


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

i changed in my FTP the name of the ACP folder for security reasons ... maybe the error is for this?

obviously if i uninstall or disable your hack all runs correctly

couple of issues with this mod after the update

- When I log in to some user accounts, I get this notification on top

You are currently using Unregistered's account. Click here to go back to your admin account.

- When I log in to a user account who is banned, I see no way to return to my admin account, nor do I see the menu bar and no logout button so I can at least log back into my own account. The only way to do it is delete all cookies, hit refresh and log back into my own account.

Any fixes ?

I get the same error as above and when I disable the hack, the error dissappears.
It also won't allow me to add users to the Super Admins option. When I add them, nothing is carried thru.
Solutions anyone?

**EDIT** I had to uninstall the hack completely and re-install it before it would work. So never mind.

Same here - I was just going to stress - WHEN YOU UPGRADE THIS HACK, UNINSTALL THE OLD VERSION FIRST, otherwise you get sql errors when attempting to access a users profile data.

I get the same thing.

I should have just kept the old mod.

I can only recommend you to uninstall hack, then re-install it, then clear browser cache and forum cookies, then re-start browser, then try to login to user account and see how it works.

So problem can be bad installation or browser (cookies).

I found out something very interesting today.

If you click a username in the "Last Post" category of your forum home it will take you to their profile. Now, if you look in their profile, it will have a link saying "Log In As User." Yeah, that's what it's supposed to do. But if you got to the member's profile through a "Last Post" link and then tried clicking "Log In As User" in their profile, it will take you to a "You're viewing unregistered users account."

In order for this hack to work you need to go to the member's profile either through the MEMBERLIST part or by actually clicking the users name in the postbit and clicking "View Public Profile."

For some reason, the "Log In As User" link does NOT work correctly if the link that got you to the users profile looks something like this:

http://www.houstonup.com/forums/memb...astposter&f=32

It HAS to look something like this:

http://www.houstonup.com/forums/member.php?u=15

Is there any way you can fix this? Sometimes it's easier to go to the users profile and login by just clicking on their name in the "Last Post" category from the forum home.

I hope I've made myself clear enough to you all.
