No there is no way to change that. Like written in the instructions, he/she needs to have modcp access, so Admin, S.Mod or Moderator (with a forum).

Who can view history is controlled by the usergroup settings.

Hi,

this is a wonderful hack and I want to use it but I have a feature request:

Is there a way to include an approval process?

A user can change his name but before this change becomes valid an Administrator has to approve it.
Some kind of moderated username change link in the AdminCP would be wonderful.


Would be nice to see this in v 1.0.3

regards
jluerken

Ok I change this.

Create a phrase called: mh_unm
Phrase Type: Control Panel Home Pages
Product: Username Management
Varname: mh_unm
Text: Username Management

Then edit cpnav_mh_unm.xml and delete all content.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Done!

If you have Andreas Hack installed the Users menu stays now on the main page and a new menu comes up on the second enhanced nav page.

Have fun...

How can this happen? The menu is just controled by another file in your includes/xml. I didn't hear from anybody else having this problem.

Sounds to me that this is more a buck in Andreas hack then. It should be just nother option in the User menugroup (that is where it belongs).

And as you can see here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...6&postcount=76
I solved it and posted a solution for all other users who might have it

Now I am waiting for version 1.0.3 with admin approval :-)

Thanks Marco,

Is it possible to include the option to change userid of any user, and only Staff members or super Admin could do this.

Please could you edit your solution to add a note that your solution is only if they have Andreas hack installed. Now it looks like everyone should be making that change.

No, i don't see the use of changing a userid. Since it will also require totally different coding, i son't see a reason to put it in this hack.
