About this hack:
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.'

This hack is very easy to install. This hack has only the admin yes/no option. Just install and it's ready to be used!

Enjoy!

It is not a Usergroup Option (from what I see).
Administrator rights. More info is in the instructions if you would have read it.

Ok. I removed the header edit from the last installed version so now I am getting only one message at the top of the forum BUT I can't log in to anyone's account. I t keeps saying I don't have permission and if I click the return to my original user link at the top of the forum, it takes me back to the Admin user name (mine that is) So why can't I log in? By the way..had this problem with the older version too, that's why I decided to upgrade.

Did you set your permissions?

Yes I did. I can see the "log in as user" in their profiles but when I click it, all I see is the header message and a message that I have to log in using a username and password.

Sorry, I would need ACP access and access to this hack to test it out.

RE: not working on vb 3.7rc1

It works on my site, but screws up the formatting in the/members view. I disabled the product to verify the problem, and the formatting problem fixed itself.

I reenabled the hack, and the formatting issue reappeared.

It creates a really long column, which changes the formatting of the blocks in the member view.


Thansk for a really cool hack, it is one of my favorites I"m still using it even with the formatting issue, because it only effects people with admin rights.

Jason

Are you guys sure you have an up-to-date vb template with just this edit? It should work if you put it in the right place.

I can give you permissions to look at it if you want. just pm me if you want to take a look.

I hope I explained correctly, the formatting issue is only present when in admin mode (or someone who has been given permission to log in as another user) and from the members page, it streches out into a really long block.

I'm running the latest release vb3.7 RC1, updated all templates, even tried to uninstall/reinstall the product with no luck. When I disable the product, the formatting problem goes away.

Working like a champ on 3.7 RC1. I had to add the font color to the phrase itself as I think the link messes that up in the alert message template. Also, I had to add 2   in front of the template link code as it ran together with the edit user link. If you put the actual link on the template itself, it spaces out right. Any way do do that?
