Admin Can Login as Any User
Author Message
After activation, this adds two option to user profiles, only visible to administrators:
  • Login as this user
  • Force logout
The first allows the administrator to effectively login to the account without the user's password.  Everything behaves normally in this login state.  The only difference is that logging out will return the administrator back to their original account.
(note, please don't use this to log into another administrator's account, and then log into some other account from there, though I haven't tried what happens if you do this)

The second option just forces the user to log out if they have logged in somewhere.

Yes, you have to be very explicit when you say these things, or I won't be able to figure out what you want exactly.

If you want to exclude users to be hijackable, don't do the edit I said earlier, instead, find both instances:

PHP Code:
if(!$user) error('Invalid UserID supplied.');

for both, add after:

PHP Code:
if(in_array($user['uid'], array(1,2,3))) error('Cannot log in / clear key of this user.');


The link will still appear, but won't work.

RE: Admin Can Login as Any User
I absolutely love this plug in, however I noticed after I switched my servers over and moved my forums, this plug in stopped working all of a sudden. I've gone as far as to delete it and reinstall it to no avail. I've also tried deactivating it and reactivating it and it still won't work.

Is there any way to fix this? Would backing up my forums and moving them over cause this problem?

I'm using MyBB V 1.4.14 (if that helps)

You've got to define what "stopped working" means.
Do links show up?  Does it not log you into different accounts?

By stopped working I mean that when you visit any user's profile, there is no link to log into a user's account. My apologies for being vague.

Please make sure you have {$modoptions} variable in your member_profile templates.

Thank you RateU for the help! It took me a few minutes to find the template, but that fixed the issue I was having.

RE: Admin Can Login as Any User
This one is interesting but I don't think members would like the idea. But it would be cool if Admin can check PM's because sometimes this comes handy when you sort out fights and also spammers.
