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.

Alternative version: Login As by burnacid

RE: Admin Can Login as Any User
I don't use it, but there was one occasion where there was something weird happening on someone's account, so I logged in as them to see what the issue was.

I made it primarily cause I think it's an interesting idea, and I like writing non-practical plugins which interest me Tongue

RE: Admin Can Login as Any User
I use it to log in and log out to my test account, to test some modification/plugin. I need to know whether my modification/plugin works for other usergroup or not, especially if the modification/plugin adds other settings for them.

RE: Admin Can Login as Any User
this is simply best if you need to check the working of forum permissions and other settings for other groups

RE: Admin Can Login as Any User
I installed the plugin, but didnot find any option to log into user account !!!
EDIT: well I managed to find the two added options under /user..html
Now, I log using user's account, but whenever I enter a forum or a thread, I get a blank page
When I log out from this user's account, I find mysel totally logged out !! so I had to log in again as admin

NB: This happened in online forum, but in local server, it worked pefectely

RE: Admin Can Login as Any User
^ That's a good point - I should probably use MyBB"s cookie array now that it exists.  But I'll wait for katib's response.
