I wondered why all of our supporters where suddenly admins. Then I noticed that when I edit staff logged in as Master-Admin (ID 1) everything is fine but when I'm logged in with my personal account (marked as admin) the supporters were set to admin when I edited them:

To solve this problem I edited the following files (@Maian: Maybe you can fix this for the next update);

Replace the following line

<input type="hidden" name="admin" value="yes">


<input type="hidden" name="admin" value="<?php if (isset($EDIT->admin) && ($EDIT->admin=='yes' || $EDIT->id=='1')) {echo "yes";} else {echo "no";};?>">

/admin/control/classes/class.users.php // update()
Replace the following block

    if ($user != '1') {
      $isAdminUser = (isset($_POST['admin']) ? 'yes' : 'no');
    } else {
      switch($_POST['update']) {
        case 1:
          $isAdminUser = 'yes';
          if (isset($_POST['admin'])) {
            $isAdminUser = 'yes';
            $editperms = serialize(array('ticket','reply'));


    if ($_POST['update'] == '1') {
      $isAdminUser = 'yes';
    } else {
	  if (isset($_POST['admin'])) {
		$isAdminUser = $_POST['admin'];

I thought I had fixed this. Must have broke it again. sad

Thanks for letting me know, added to bugs to be fixed.

#3 msworld 11-07-2018 11:58:21

Ok, I`ve checked, but it seems to be ok.

1. Log in as user 2, which is an admin
2. Edit user who isn`t an admin, they stay as none admin

Did I miss something?

#4 y3000 11-07-2018 12:36:08

No, that's exactly the way I did this ... and when I look at the code (e.g. in /admin/templates/system/team/team.php the admin value ist hard coded for all useres beside superadmin with ID1: <input type="hidden" name="admin" value="yes">) it can't work correctly.

I've dowloaded the script from here: Is it possible that you tested with a newer codebase?

#5 msworld 11-07-2018 14:54:53

No, I don`t think so, should be the same. NO problem, I will run some more checks. Have tried it with 3 accounts at the moment, all work ok.

I`ll let you know if I find anything.

#6 y3000 12-07-2018 06:47:14

Strange ... But with the following code in the /admin/templates/system/team/team.php everytime when an admin-user who is not not the super-admin (ID1) edits a supporter the value for admin is "yes":

                if ($MSTEAM->id != '1' && $MSTEAM->admin == 'yes') {
                <input type="hidden" name="admin" value="yes">

And in /admin/control/classes/class.users.php with this code, evertime when an admin-user who is not not the super-admin (ID1) edits a supporter the variable $isAdminUser is set to "yes" when $_POST['admin'] is set - but $_POST['admin'] is set in every case to "yes" as far as I can see:

    if ($user != '1') {
      $isAdminUser = (isset($_POST['admin']) ? 'yes' : 'no');

I'll check with the next update if the problem still exists for us ... then I give you feedback wink

#7 msworld 12-07-2018 06:52:24

Thanks. I`ll take a look at it now. If there is a bug, I prefer to get it sorted. Will run some more tests and let you know.

#8 msworld 12-07-2018 07:52:31

Ok, what I should have done was enabled the admin option only for the ID:1 user. No other admins can change this. So, hopefully fixed now.

Download and replace:


And retest then let me know. smile

#9 y3000 13-07-2018 08:05:18
