I think that having option for usergroup permissions is very important, I like to enable some things to some usergroups and not to others.

Also, I think that even admins should know pass of users that they would link.

How to check usergroup with if statement in php?

This line checks if it's allowed for users to use this plugin:

if ($vbulletin->options['psi_qas_allow_front_end_linking'])

I can change variable psi_qas_allow_front_end_linking to represent allowed usergroups, but I don't know how to phrase correct if statement to check if user is member of it.

Make it so only the superadmin can add/disable linked accounts. And make it so other admins can only do it if they have the other account's password.

Ok, I solved everything that bothered me and found a way around for Boko577.

Now you can control whether you want to allow admins without right to administer plugins to use it via AdminCP. You just go to Plugin manager, find "QAS: Admin Controls" in "Product : Quick Account Switch" and turn it off, or use changed xml I attached.

I enabled you to choose which usergroups can link another accounts and it's done in UserCP, so they must know pass. Also, by default plugin for using it in AdminCP is turned off. If you want to turn it on, just go to plugin manager and enable it (QAS: Admin Controls). Or, you can edit my file and enable it from the start.

In AdminCP go to user you want linked, and in left column of his settings (if you use two column layout) you'll find with whom this user is linked (of course, if he's linked) and options to link users with this user account. It's somewhere around user profile fields (Location, Occupation...).

Just go there and look, you'll see it.

Or just look at the picture in first post, it shows where it is.

Can anyone confirm if this addon still works for 4.1.3? Either the original, or Alan_SP's modification to it?

On 4.1.2 still works. Don't see why it wouldn't work on 4.1.3.

Is there a way to prevent users to share same info?

For sample, I logged in as one user and when I checked the user posts is sharing all users posts from the main user which is admin. That brings confusion

Thanks for/your help

How can I have this mod but with out the option of linking accounts? When we make multiple accounts is for the purpose that at the end we dont want users to know we are those extra accounts.

The mod is great but the linking all accounts is what it get me.

This mod will save me so much time that I will be more then greatfull to donate what ever it takes to get it working
