clicks install, great idea, saves getting users password to test problems on their account.

In current version there is no some special way to go back. Just log-out from user's account and than log-in to your own.

very useful to test access permissions of mods or powerusers in a very big forum with many usergroups and individual accessmasks
everybody knows that with so many permission settings can happen mistakes and this hack helps very much to find out these mistakes
Thank you!

Great work. I would love it if it would only show the option to login as a user to someone with the permission to do so. If I deny it to a certain admin, he still sees the link. Kinda like holding a carrot in front of him.

Hi one feature that i would like to suggest is to make it so only superadmins can alter the settings, because cant an admin just add themselves to the list?

EDIT

also a non superadmin was able to login to my account (super admin account)

Admin can't login to another Admin account.

I can not make that only SuperAdmin can alter the settings. But you can. If Admin is allowed to change any vBulletin settings then he can change this hack's settings too. You may wish to edit your Admins permissions and dissallow them to access vBulletin Options.

Another solution is to make that only SuperAdmins can use this hack and remove completely option where you can define which ones can do it.

1.) Admins who arent allowed to use this hack, is the hack invisible for them?
2.) What can i do that a SAdmin can login as a "standat" admin?
