Solved How to change administrator to someone else?

Post by Steweh on August 17th 2010, 8:35 am

I have searched but I didn't find what I am after.


Is it possible to make someone the owner of my forum, and I can become a regular member?

Just go to ACP then click profile that you wanted to make staff or member then scroll down to bottom of the page then it should "Ranks".

Give them your account details, thats for the user to become the founder of the forum. Because, to buy credits, edit templates you need to be the founder of the forum. That way your posts become his too.

Another way, add him to the administrator group. Tell him your account details, to buy credits & make template changes he can use the original founder account. But, for normal admin panel changes he can use his account.

Hope this makes things clear for you.

No, it did not help.


Just to make this clear, I have almost 7,000 posts by me on my forum, and I would like to stand down from owner and just become a normal member with no rank at all, and I want to make someone else owner. I don't want to just swap accounts with someone else.

That's not possible, you need to pass your founder account information to give a new owner on the forum.

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
