Admin Panel Pass

Post by Fire Stone on January 19th 2009, 6:29 pm

There should be a way to have an Admin Panel Password.Instead of Auth Dialog Box to administration access and Confirm password to administration access. I want something to set a password for the admin panel, so only a few of the admins can get in.

I think this is a good idea...

What is the point of being an Admin if you aren't allowed access to the admin panel?!?

That's true. I have voted "bad" for this suggestion because of Psi-chotic!'s point.

I am confused as I have my forum set up so that I have to enter my password to enter the admin panel. This has been able to be done for a while now.

I don't think you read my other thread. There was a hacker hacking some forums that are close to us so we put our forum under construction and made the mods admins so they can still view it because we were talking about whats going on. We would've used AIM, but not every mod has one. We didn't want them to mess with anything because I know a mod that would love to change the theme. We would've de-moded him but he was a good mod. Did good actions...

So instead of having them come into the admin panel and mess around with stuff, we want something that asks them for a password. Not their password, but a password we made up so only the original 3 admins can get access to it.

No you are wrong, I read your other thread.
I still don't agree.
#1 rule of appointing admins...someone whom you can trust!
