  • Root Admin??

    IPB invision power board forums has 2 admin groups in the admin cp

    1. a Root admin group and
    2. a normal admin group where the normal admins cannot edit or delete any members accounts who are in the Root admin group, they also can't edit
    the Root admin group.



    Does vbulletin also have this feature????

    In vB, you can protect the specified users from deletion by adding their user id's into the /includes/config.php file under the Undeletable/Unalterable users section. And, any such users cannot be edited from the AdminCP as well.

      vBulletin has Super Administrator and Administrator. Super Administrator can limit what each Administrator can and can't do in the AdminCP.

          Admins and smods yes but not sadmins and admins, however you can use access masks to set who can see which forum .

              Super Administrator is not a usergroup. It is something set in /includes/config.php.

              As a result, there is no way to hide that forum from Admins but not Super Admins through forum permissions.

              You could use the user-specific Access Masks system (which I suggest people only use when Usergroup-based permissions just will not do what they want) to hide and show the forum on a user-by-user basis.

                ok thank you

                I'm going to be buying the vbulletin software with another person and I'd like to set both of us as super admins and then set maybe 1 or 2 other people as admins

                however I want one forum that I can discuss things with my partner that the other admins will not be able to see


                it looks like I can with the access mask system though ?

                thanks

                    Uhhh... He'd have to make sure that the other admins don't have the "Can Administer User Permissions" privilege though, otherwise they'd be able to add themselves to the mask.

                          Your admins. vBulletin allows you to make it so some users cannot be edited via the admin control panel.

                            so if I make them uneditable then I can mask certain forums from them and they cannot see they are masked ?


                            thanks right now I'm running phpbb and this is one of the main reasons I'm considering vBulletin

                              Create a new usergroup, edit the existing admin group, or edit the config.php file to add users to "super user".
