Solved Changing admin colour

Post by Testicles_the_Greek on February 27th 2014, 11:52 am

Hi

I am the founder and admin, but have recently added another admin (there may be yet another soon). He wants me to stay on to help.

I was wanting to change my username colour and appear merely as a 'member' to the rest of the site.

Can two administrators have different colour names? If it involves two different admin groups, how is it done?

Hi Very Happy

It is simple. Go to ACP < Users and Group < Create a new group named "Admin" or whatever the admins group is < Save < Add the admins you want

Now, there's always an original admin group, right? Well, in that group, no matter how much you change it, you'll always BE the founder. So, here's what you should do about it:

Original Admin group < Change it to "Hidden" < Save

And now, you technically won't see it in the forum. So, in the NEW admin group you made, you can remove yourself from that group without a problem and the admins you want as admins will appear there instead, hiding you.

Note: Your user ID will give away that you're the founder since checking your profile would have a link of u1 in it which as I said, indicates you're the founder.

Hope my explanation's clear Smile.

Regards,
Pizza Boi

Great, I tried that (or similar) but not the 'hidden' aspect!

Thanks
