Hiding Admins

I believe the admin accounts should be hidden on the website. What I mean is for the admin profile on the website to be invisible or hidden so frontend users do not know get to view the admin account(s).

Re: Hiding Admins

True however if I am understanding you correctly, that is by updating preferences. Your profile would still be visible on the members page.

Re: Hiding Admins

Thanks for the instructions Eri however I did try that prior to my thread however it did not help me accomplish my want. What I mean is that setting "Show Profile" disables the profile page (Example: http://domain.com/users/USERNAME/) however if you go to domain.com/community, you would be able to see the accounts on the page. My intention is to hide the account completely so no one becomes aware of the username of the admin accounts as the Admin Control Panel login is formatted as Username:Password. If someone finds out the username, it would be become easier to compromise the admin accounts.

Re: Hiding Admins

You can change tge admin username if you want. On theprofile page it does not say if you are a admin or moderator or member.

Does this mean I can have a different username frontend while have another on backend on the same account?

I agree that the profile page does not tell the members rank however the first person to sign up always is an admin. Plus I plan on having some ranks on the website in the future so it could be tricky.

Re: Hiding Admins

Create another admin user now and then delete the first user. Login with the newly created admin user. DO NOT delete the anonymous user.

Damn. I had deleted the anonymous user days ago. What's up with the anonymous user anyways?

Re: Hiding Admins

The anonymous user is used for anonymous uploads. Add it back and set any password youwant. I guess i will need prevent this user from being deleted.
