Is there a way to have two, or more multiple admins, and grant regular user admin rights?

I need to know if it's possible to make two admins, and how?

if they're both trusted users, couldn't you give them both the admin username/password?

yeah, but I'm one of them and the other one wants to have his user as an admin, and I feel that way too. So I don't have to have two users.

Like in our boards, we both (Paul and Sergei) are using this "Team" nickname. With no problem :)

Best use Admin as a Status, not as a person. Just use admin when you need it, best do postings with a username, unless you have a good point to use your Admin nick.

You could edit bb_specials.php to give yourself and your friend a special user rank that would identify you two, I did that on my board and it works out pretty well :)

Well then I have to live with it :o)
Then I have to change the name of my admin-user, how do I do that?

In setup_options, then restore admin info in Admin panel.

are you sure you do not need Moderators? - see manual for those. Adding new admins is not trivial.

Adding second admin is impossible.

Good evening ...

Is it possible to have multiple administrators on a forum? or do I just need to make them Moderators and name them Administrators?

yes, make them mods, but take care: they only have the rights for assigned forums. so you have to assign each mod to each forum (if needed). but they don't have access to the admin area to ban users or ip's, they can't create a forum nor change it. this is task for real admin.

Power to the people - yes. All the power to the people - no.

They could organize a revolution, which is not very smart to allow them to :) :) :)
