Admin Log In As User 1.2


About this hack:
This hack allows a SUPER ADMIN (settings in your config file) to log in as any user. You have to go to the user's profile page and there will be a link to 'Log In As This User'. Also, there is a link the drop down menu in the ACP User Manager. If you are logged in as another user, you will get a message on top of the forum saying, 'You are currently logged in as another user. Click here to log back into your account.'

This hack is very easy to install. This hack has NO options. Just install and it's ready to be used!

Enjoy!

Well I didn't make this as a port. I use a totally differant way to log in. I totally wrote this hack from scratch, but, if you want the link in the acp, I'll try to add it now.

hmmm odd, I tried it out, however it doesn't do anything for me. I see the link, but when I click it nothing happens? Basically the page reload's itself.

EDIT: It works only when I go into the ACP and use the log as user, however on the memberinfo it doesn't work.

I didn't mean to infer that this was a port. I was only stating "like that old version" so you would understand exactly what I meant. I apologize for the confusion and thank you, sir, for fulfilling my request.

Great hack...installed! Is there a way to NOT record your IP address if you login as a user? I sometimes would like to remain anonymous when I login as them.

I've noticed though ... as soon as you become that member you lose your admin privileges and need to log back into your super admin account to do anything.

Still, this is going to prove very useful
