Administrator shows as the users name.

Post by john Smiths »

A member/user has been assigned as Administrator, the problem is that the members users name;which was previously hidden when they were online, now shows and highlights them as administrator. IE colour change, name in bold and username showing.

We want them as administrator but anonymously. Any name would be fine but not their membership name.

I did try a search for this answer but couldn't find one.

I'm not sure what difference it makes knowing that an Admin is online or not - if they post then everyone will know who they are anyway.

The answer is when they log on to "hide" their presence - or set it in their UCP.
