Admin Log In As User 3.10


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!

vB will show YOU only that, that user is online. No-one else will see that. The record of that user being online does not exist.

Great! One last question... what if that user is online at the same time? Like you go in as them before you realize they are online.

So no user would ever know you had used their account. Sounds good to me.

Correct. Just one thing, if you use read a thread and you use the database storage for marking threads as read, it will mark it as read. If you use the cookie option, you can read as many threads as you want and the user will not notice.

I never thought about that. Do you have an option for it with this or is that the setting in the Admin CP that needs to be changed? I use the db way right now.

I can't stop the database way. I figured out everything else. Just this would need a file edit.

You have it in the install instructions about that, I hope. That would make it alot easier to remember down the line for us old guys who tend to forget things.

No, I meant about changing the setting in the Admin CP and why it needs to be done. File edits are a no-no these days.
