This hack allows any admin that you set in admin permissions, 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.'

Enjoy!

For some reason I am seeing two messages at the top of the screen saying "You are currently logged in as another user. Click here to log back into your account".

What would be causing this? Have I forgotten to remove something?

Thanks

Doug

Well... I think I may have found the problem...

Following these instructions... ( I am running 3.6.7 PL1)

*****NOTE TO 3.6.0 - 3.6.6 USERS*****
This hack uses a hook that was not put into vB until version 3.6.6. You can follow the following steps to get this hack working on your forum.

Open file global.php

Find:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
if (!empty($db->explain))
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Place BEFORE:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
($hook = vBulletinHook::fetch_hook('global_setup_complete')) ? eval($hook) : false;
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Save file.


Open file includes/xml/hooks_vbulletin.xml

Find:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
<hook>global_start</hook>
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Place BEFORE:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
<hook>global_setup_complete</hook>
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Save file.

I find that these entries are already existing in the files and create duplicate entries. Which is 'probably' the reason for getting two notices at the top of the page.

Just makes it easier to upgrade.

Remove the current template edit.

Guys,

I had NO trouble what so ever with this hack until now. Why try to fix or change what is not broken?

I have completely removed this hack. If I decide to reinstall I will stay with version 2 until this mess with version 3 can be fixed...

I did remove it from the header. I followed the instructions as it says to do.

My decision still stands to keep this hack removed, until these things are cleared up and the instructions are drastically improved. Very misleading.

Can you please tell me what is not correct now? I'm not sure what you are having trouble with.

I dont know what is not correct, All i know is that i get two notices up in the header area, and I no longer have the login as user link in the admin cp in the user edit area.

I uninstalled version two and followed the instructions exactly as it says in the notepad file called "Insructions vb3_6_x"

Not sure why the link is not in ACP but are you using another style that may have the template edit in it?

Any way I can test your ACP? No one else reporting the problem.
