  • Moderators can change Administrator's settings

    I found out the hard way today that my moderators can change my avatar, edit my profile and basically screw around with my settings. How can I prevent this?

    Open the file: /vbroot/includes/config.php

    Find this:

    PHP Code:
        //    ****** UNDELETABLE / UNALTERABLE USERS ******
        //    The users specified here will not be deletable or alterable from the control panel by any users.
        //    To specify more than one user, separate userids with commas.
    $config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] = ''
    Stick your userid in there, if your userid is 1 it would look like:

    PHP Code:
        //    ****** UNDELETABLE / UNALTERABLE USERS ******
        //    The users specified here will not be deletable or alterable from the control panel by any users.
        //    To specify more than one user, separate userids with commas.
    $config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] = '1'

      I think I did this and the result was that I could not change my settings via the admin CP (!)
      I didn't try but I guess I could change my settings only via my forum userCP..

      is this how it actually works?

        That's ccorrect. When you do this no one can chnage your account.
