    Well usually the board is closed so that administration can do administration stuff. It would make sense that administrators would still have access.

    The default superadministrator is the only owner, but even then you can have more than one superadministrator. I suppose there could be a setting added that would only allow those in the superadmin list to access the board, but I don't see how you could further isolate it to the owner without requiring a license number and password to access the site when the board was closed. That would be a real PIA.

    Yes, this will not affect Admins or access to the Admin CP.

    well thanks a lot renep...i guess that's the best way..to revert all templates...and if i have to re install all the mod...i have to sacrifice for the better way and safest new and clean board...

    btw...is it possible to close my board and only me can access it?..meaning all staff and members are no access except me the owner?
