Lack of Interest Administrator permissions: Separate "Delete" users from "Manage" users

    I make my moderators Administrators too so they can assist with user account managament, but the current "Manage users and moderators" permission allows them to delete accounts.

    My suggestion is to simply remove "Delete" from that manage permission set and make it a separate, distinct and explicit permission that has to be ticked.

    For the mean time,

    Open up ControllerAdmin\User.php

    Change line 553 from


        {    $this->assertSuperAdmin();
    that way only super admins labeled in your config.php can delete users.

    What admin permissions do you give them? This is a great idea
