    Why does my choice of words intrigue you? Just stating it the way it is.

It's too late when that happens to wish you had kept those passwords to yourself. The way they have it now is an excellent approach to a very sticky situation. And besides, there aren't too many times you really need to chnage your Admin info. Not enough to warrant not having your butt covered, anyway.

    It is likely, however, that they will simply create a new admin account and wreak havoc, knowing that they themselves cannot do much more than that...

    No amount of protection can prevent that from happening...Unless, of course, you only have one admin, with no admin permissions, not a super admin and uneditable/deletable

    It's better to have it this way, though. If someone should ever hack your Admin account, they can't change anything in your account and lock you out. They would have to have your FTP info first to change it in the config.php. And since anyone hacking your account will not have that info, it makes you almost invulnerable to them.

    I presume via Admin CP - Remove your id from the "uneditable/undeleteable" setting in config.php, edit yourself, then re-add it

    started a topic Editing a protected administrator.

    Editing a protected administrator.

    I've noticed this works, but when I was editing myself, it wouldn't let me.
    It should be changed so that if you ARE the super admin in question you can edit yourself.
