    Can someone plz enlighten me as to the differences between a Super Admin and an Admin?

    I have the same question re: SuperMod vs Moderator

    Lastly, if I choose to make someone a Super Admin/Mod, how do I do such? I see options for Mod and Admin, but not "Super" mod/admin

    Super Admins can be set in the config.php
    $config['superAdmins'] = '1';

    A Super Admin can't be edited by an Admin.

    Q: How do I add another Super Administrator?
    A: Edit /library/config.php and add any additional users, comma delimited: $config['superAdmins'] = '1,2,3';
    (From here: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/how-do-i.5183/)

    A Super Moderator moderates the entire board.
    A Moderator moderates specific forums only.
    You have the option of choosing which when you set them as a moderator.

    A super admin also has all permissions in the admin CP (no matter what). Super admins are the only ones that can create other admins.

    Is there a way to tell a user's id without going into the database? I couldn't locate anything in the ACP

    Tip: hover your mouse over someones avatar or username, the ID should show in the url at the bottom of your browser (typically).
