If I remember well.. for me it worked on 4.1.7, on standard vbulletin theme. Also, it's working on 4.2.0.

It works for me on 4.1.12PL1, so I think that there shouldn't be problems with 4.1.7.

It's a little wonky for me on 4.2 ... it works most of the time but sometimes it forgets what it's doing and leaves me permanently logged in as someone else. At that point all I have to do is log out and log back in.

I think that when an admin, who is logged in as (another) user and is not allowed to read the user's PM's, removes specific cookies while logged in as the user, he has access to read the PM's.. Am I right?

On 4.2.0, this has been working perfect until today. The only thing that has changed in we have added a new usergroup with no profile features.

When attempting to check this user's permissions with this add-on, I get the following results. (I don't want to try in IE, I really hate the POS)

Firefox - Nothing but load the profile of the user you are trying to test permissions on.
Chrome - Database Timeout and the constant Database errors
Opera - As Above

A clear cache and what not fixes the issue. Is it just me?

Everything seems to be working fine on 4.2 PL2.

Question: Anyway to disable it showing the user I'm logged into as "Online"?

Got this when installed on 4.2
Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class. Template name: admin_log_in_as_user_member_info_link_vb37 in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 4734

For some reason I have seen this mod and never had the need for it until recently to help a user that is having a problem. I'm using VB 4.2.0 and my only issue is in your screen capture #3 it shows that you are on as a member and click here to go back to to the admin account and I dodn't see that at all. I need to log compleely off and back on as the admin again.

Any ideas as I would like to see this on the main page.

Considering installing this mod on vB 4.2 PL2. How stable is it? Does it cleanly uninstall?
