Non-mod member is "Viewing moderator control panel"

Post by Timmer »

When viewing the "who is online" function I see that a member who is NOT a moderator is listed as:

Viewing moderator control panel

Anyone have any ideas about this? Are they really viewing something they shouldn't or is PHPBB3 just reporting it funny? Thanks!

They're probably just getting a box that tells them they don't have the necessary permissions to view the page. The auth checks are performed after it detects what page you are on for who is online.
