URGENT! Admin control panel show to members!

Post by PrinceWords » Mon May 25, 2009 4:46 pm

hi, well sorry for saying urgent, its really is! the problem started to show today only after I installed Avalon style, I dunno if its a style problem or not, ( this is why I didn't want to write in the Style release topic, so please try to fix this urgent problem with me )
the ( Admin Control Panel ) link is shown to members...and when they try to enter it it show main admin page with statics and show (groups) and ( hacks) tabs only...I can't post my forum link for the security case but I wish its a common problem that have a fix... :( thanks for your time.

What check have you done to know the users can see it?

Go in to permissions and check the masks at the bottom of the menu on the left. You can see where they admin permission has been assigned to the registered users group.

but the member who reported the problem got more tabs shown than this in his screen shot, so I can't really where the problem is, and last mod I installed before the problem occurred was Portal3, so any help please?

If you're using the option to test someone else's permissions you'll always see the admin link because you're an admin.

You need to check the permissions masks.

yea I know the link should be shown, but why the control panel show? it should say you are banned to enter the control panel and doesn't show any tabs...
and for the masks, I checked it when you told me and it didn't show anything strange...no one except the admin have access to admin control panel...this is why I doubt it may be a cause of some edit for the portal maybe?

Use the adminstrative-based permission mask on a registered user who you think has ACP access. If all the tabls are red, they do not have access. If any are green, use the trace (O-> icon on the left) to see where they get the permission. Testing users permissions will do nothing for you here.
