Admin Log In As User


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!

Well just tried this again reinstalling and the link to log in as user in the profile does nothing, but going through the admincp works. But once logged on as user the only way to log out is to use the forums log out and not by clicking on the text that says click to log out. Using 4.0 PL1

It's much better than the previous option which was to get your user to give you their password. I use it when a user wants help with something or is complaining about something that I just can't see. Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

I suspect I might be like other users who are experiencing this problem and use vBSEO. It turns out that the two Mods interfere with one another. In this case. vBSEO is re-writing the URL in the Member Profile and Header Template changes.

The workaround is as follows:

1. Make a copy of your member.php file and call is admember.php
2. Go in to your vBSEO control panel (General Settings -> vBSEO Options) and place admember.php in the Excluded Pages block.
3. Edit the templates added by this Mod to call admember.php instead of member.php. (The easiest way to find these templates is to install the Advanced Product Management product and this will allow you to modify the Master Templates).

Thank you!!!

It works fine now, never thought of a conflict between vbseo and this.

Followed your directions and all is fine and the log out links work like they should.

Thanks again!

Delete User = Problem

Been using this successfully for a week or so. One problem: I logged in as someone who was sending some spam, and then in another browser tab deleted that user before I was able to log out of that account.

Successive attempts to view the forum at all resulted in errors. I was finally able to re-set things by copying a log out URL from another computer (I probably also could have deleted browser cookies), but it may be prudent to auto-log-out of a user if they're logged in as a user that doesn't exist.

Mod still works with 4.0.1, access via admincp/users/search for users if you need to login in as a user until Able1 can make a fix.

I am running 4.0.1 and cannot confirm your issue. It works like it is suppose to from the admincp for me. Are you sure a second window is not opening when you login in as a different user?
