after the upgrade to 6.5 i can't no more "become this user" in the user management as an admin. error: you may not becom another user unless your cookie path in your advanced settings is set to /
so where are my advanced settings?

another problem: a mod which is alowed to change users can take away groups from a user bus can't set them. for me as admin it is no problem.
(this is why i wanted to become this user, just to see what's happening)

regards

You can set the cookie path by going to Primary Settings, General tab. Expand the Advanced Options (by clicking the + sign). You will see the entry for Cookie Path about mid-way down the list.

A moderator can add or remove users to/from a group that the moderator belongs to. The moderator should not be able to create groups or delete them, just add remove users.

thank you, i found the cookie path and it works now.


the add/remove thing for the moderator doesn's work correctly as i've seen now for myself. the mod sees only the groups he belongs to. he can also remove users from this groups but he can't add them. this seems to be a bug.

hi there: i tested this out on another installation, and it worked correctly for me... let me ask you a few questions:

when you saw the issue for yourself, did you use the "Become this user" feature to log in as the mod? Then, can you describe the exact steps you took to add a user to a group, and then remove them?

the mod had the problem when he loged in normaly. i tried it with the "become this user" to log in as the mod. same result. i can remove the group membership but can't add it.

to add an user to a group i search the user in the userlist or in the user administration in the admin section, i select the user, then select edit this user, then go to userrights and there i select or deselect the group membership. i tried it the same way as mod.

when i'm admin, this works perfectly, as mod symptom as described.
