    The only way to do this without hacking is to give him access to the Admin CP, effectively making him an Admin

    Nope, even as a Super Moderator, he cannot edit the profile section.

    Sorry, like I said I dont have access to the settings, but reading over the documentation here at the vbulletin, you can put them into a group with similar permissions as Super Moderators (I forgot about this usergroup because I dont use the; I dont even have mods at the moment); or just The super Moderator grup if need be. Via that group, he will have access to the Modcp and user edit information.

    Well WizyWyg, it seems that the only that I can get a member the right to edit other's profiles, is by giving them Admin rights, instead of Mod rights. I searched the forums and this has been requested before but Steve Machol has informed that it can only be done by admin rights or by hacking the code.

    Thanks for your help, though! You;ve been very kind in helping me out and I really appreciate that. I will go over to vbulletin.org and see if they have a solution.

    I woudln't give him access to admin cp; just make him a moderator/or usergroup that is a moderator with posting priviledges and then give him the link to the Moderator Control Panel.

    Take a look at your moderator settings to see how its worked out.

    You currently have a usergroup called moderators. You can use the similar usergroup permission for that group for your new usergroup, or just put him into that group. If he is a moderator, a link will appear at the bottom of the forum (or via his drop down list), for the ModCp.

    Ok, let me get this straight. For: Can Moderate All Forums (is Super Moderator), I need to choose YES?

    Or I need to choose yes for: Can Access Control Panel (is Administrator)?

    You would need to give him access to either moderator or Admin control panel to do so (I dont remember moderator's cp so I can't comment)


    edit: yup, you can give him access to moderator CP (yourdomain/forums/modcp/index.php )

    I checked that, but the only option that has to do with profiles, says "Can Edit Own Profile". If I check this, this member will be able to edit his own profile, but not the profiles of others.

    create a new usergroup, that gives them permission to do so (similar to Admins' but not with all the perks). Put that member in that usergroup via his settings.

    started a topic Allowing a member to edit someone else's profile?

    Allowing a member to edit someone else's profile?

    Ok, here is what I want to accomplish. I want to allow a specific member, the ability to edit the profile of ANY member. This would allow him to edit the profile AND ANY CUSTOM PROFILE FIELD, the member might have.

    How can I accomplish this? There are so many settings on the VB AdminCP, that I have no idea on how to allow this.

    Thanks in advance for any help.
