XF 1.5 Create user as secret administrator

#1
So, I have an admin account that I created the xenforo board with. I want to keep this one strictly admin, and not use it for posting in the board. However, I want to create another user that I use as a regular posting user, but I want it to have admin permissions as well. However, I do NOT want it to display this user as an administrator.

I applied the administrative as a "secondary group" but it still displays me as an admin. Is there a way to keep it the same as a typical user but with admin permissions?

I do this in part of having a backup admin account in the event one gets hacked, etc.

Do not add the member to the Administrative user group (you can assign permissions directly to the member instead) and uncheck 'Display user as staff'.

Duh! I totally didn't think of that. Thanks

Custom titles overwrite the global titles that in trying to keep. I wanted the titles to change as they would for any other member promotion, etc.

Thanks again! I'm still new to the system and must have overlooked the individual member permissions.
