Admin rank not working

Solved Admin rank not working

Post by xexok on April 4th 2011, 1:51 pm

I am mod at a friends forum for a few categorys but now he has to go away for a few months. He made me admin, but I don't have any of the admin privileges, cant get into the admin panel at all and still only have mod in a select few forums. When I look at my profile page it says "Rank: Admin" under my name, what could be the problem here?

I saw another similar topic here one the 2nd page but all they posted was "we got it working now" without giving any hints as to what was wrong or how they fixed it. Any ideas?

Maybe he just gave you the rank & did not add you to the admin group.

Ask the admin to add you to the original admin group.

Yes, that's right. Ranks do not define any permissions at all, only groups do. Wink

could we use something to give the ranks more special privileges without grouping? Very Happy

Nopes, thats not possible. Ranks are just images. Got nothing else to do with permissions.
