Hello,

A rank and a group are two different things. A rank grants no powers to anyone, whereas a group can. The only group that allows one to have access to the site admin panel is the default Administrators group, the one with the crown on it when you view it from groups management the ACP (Admin panel). Other then that there is no one to grant a user access to the admin panel. Very Happy

The reason the system is set up like that is for security. You don't just want anyone to have access to your admin panel, so they make it just 1 standard group that can access it. You can, however, add whoever you want to that group. If you don't want them colored as an Admin, you could hide the default group and make a new group called Administrators or whatever. You add those who you want to have access to the admin panel to the default admin group (which is hidden and users won't be colored) and then you can add them to other groups as well. This way they have access to the admin panel without being shown publiy as an Administrator Smile.
