    Is it possible to set an "administrator without access to admincp".

    Just make them a Super Moderator...


    • #3
      Supermoderator is not an administrator.


      • #4
        Yes it Admin without access to the Admin CP.

        All Admin's do that Super Mods don't is access the Admin CP.

            There is no Super Moderator CP. SMs can access the standard Mod CP.

              This is purely a matter of semantics...however, it's Jelsoft that defines the terms here. In the Usergroup Manager there is a section entitled "Administrator Permissions". The two settings here are:

              From the Usergroup Manager:

              Administrator Permissions

              Can Moderate All Forums (is Super Moderator) Yes/No
              Can Access Control Panel (is Administrator) Yes/No
              Therefore, by Jelsoft's use of the terms, both SuperModerators and Administrators are Administrators. A SuperModerator is an Administrator without AdminCP access, while an "Administrator" is an Administrator with AdminCP access. In other words, the term Administrator when used as a description of one's "powers" is different from the Title of Administrator which specifies AdminCP access. A SuperModerator is an Administrator with a Permission limitation.

              You can say that since the SuperModerator is given the Title SuperModerator and not Administrator that he/she is not really an Administrator, but then again, you can easily alter the Title ot the Administators to something else as well (Webmaster, Boss, Chief) - wouldn't they still be Administrators?

              No, there is no "SuperModeratorCP", but the SuperModerator's ModCP can be different from the Moderator's ModCP. Semantics again.

              How come , when a SuperMod is Moderating, it's reported on "Who's Online" as Moderating, not SuperModerating? Because the addition of the "Super" prefix doesn't signify a fundamental difference in the actual Moderation process but the elevation of a Moderator to limited Administrator status.
