Solved Change admin

Post by Antinous on October 5th 2012, 11:38 am

I recently started a forum but don't want to administrate it. I now have a member who does want to be admin, but how do I step down from the post and give it to him?

I looked at your tips - thanks for the swift response! but the thing is I don't want to leave the forum, I just want to become an ordinary member instead of the admin.

There can be only one founder account.

If you don't want to be the founder anymore, you need to leave it to the new admin and create your own member account Smile

OK. But just one more question:

I made him admin in the admin group - but he has a V in front of his name, not an A, and his name is not highlighted in blue. How come? And what does the V mean?
