Solved Ex admins can still view Admin Panel

Post by Pokeaura_Ikuto on August 26th 2011, 3:25 pm

Hey, on my site, PokeAurA, I removed two users from the Administrators group. However when i checked the security logs, it shows both of them having access to the admin panel. I checked ranks and groups and both users are not admins in any way, other than being able to see the panel.

Also, i can't /unmod these two users from the Chatbox. Apparently the forum thinks they are still admins so it won't unmod them.

Please help...thanks

Make sure you remove them from the administrator group completely.

Please check it. What you are saying should not really happen.

I am currently the only member in the administrator group. (being the site founder)

I am saying that the two users who were administrators, and aren't anymore because i removed them yesterday, can still access the admin panel. I checked the times they accessed the admin panel and they were a few hours after my log when i removed them from the group.

Are you sure that you removed them from the real admin group? Sometimes people like to have fake admin groups, such as this forum, for display purposes.

I have deleted the other administrator group, and the last occurence of admin sign-in was this morning at 07:34a MDT.

Also, I just recently purchased a domain name and the copyrights removed. I'm not sure if this will affect the problem or not, but I thought I should mention it...!

Yes Rideem, that was correct....the second admin group.

And yeah, that's what i meant when i said i was the only one in the admin group. That is how i've been checking.

However, every so often without my knowledge, the two users get put back into the administrators group...I'm all ut of know how for this Sad

Its not possible to put yourself back into the group without you doing so. You might want to change your password.

Go into your admin panel, go to users and groups > search users > then find one of thse users who you mean and view there information.
Click on the permissions tab and at the top you will see 'User Level:' with a drop down box, make sure to set this to user.

I dunno why nobody else though of this..
