XF 1.4 Make admin but don't show.


Formerly mugtree
We already have an admin. I want to make another user also admin but I don't want them to show as admin on the front end.

Can this be done and how if so how do I do it?

I just found the username and changed them to admin and made sure that option about showing them as admin on the front end was unticked. What else do you need to do?

Remove them from the Administrator user group if the styling priority of that group is higher then the Registered user group.

Apply any permissions from the Administrator user group to them directly.
