Solved Admin questions

Post by ASOF on April 28th 2011, 11:05 am

Hi

Can someone be kind enough to clarify a couple of questions we have regarding our Admin panel?

1) Can someone advise how I change the Admin password, concerned about security after reading repeated topics here of forums being hacked?

2) Also, I have noticed guests are viewing "Members List" but this is not visible to guests only members, so how can this be? (pic below)



Thanks

Hi Chan

Guests don't have the option to view "Members Lists" as the Memberlist icon at the top of our forum near home/log out etc is only visible when logged in as a member What the fuck ?!?

Thanks for the password info by the way Very Happy

so your saying that guest cannot view the member's list so your question is how does a guest can view your member's list. well did you check if you have a user name "Guest" without the quote if does he can view the member's list.

Guests can still view the memberlist even if there isn't an image for it. If you didn't use the correct permissions then they can still look at it using a direct link.

To fully remove the memberlist for guests, please go to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Users & Groups Tab
3. Special rights (on the left, under Special rights)
4. Select "Memberlist : Members"
