[Solved]: EVERYONE'S an admin..[???]
« on: June 17, 2004, 06:31:32 pm »

 :-\\  ...seems somewhere in all of my configurations I must have somehow accidentally changed a feature I didn't want changed....

When I asked a friend to join/signup, just to ensure it was working smoothly, etc.. He informed me that he had a subfeature [under the @ button] of "Admin mode".. Ack!
I opened up a different browser and signed up myself, just to double check and sure enough, I was ALSO allowed Admin access, even as a regular user. I cannot see the option/window/menu to change/fix this... [just to be sure, this "friend" IS, in fact, just a regular Registered User.]

Many many thanks in advance!

It isn't really "Admin"mode, or it shouldn't be anyway.  It is actually just his personal Admin mode for his personal galleries.

Can he access things like the Gallery Config and Admin Tool Box?

Yes, all users get an 'admin mode' link.  But normal users only get 3 links, to administer their own albums, and cannot affect the real administration.

Maybe confusing, that term. Why not call it "edit mode", and "watch" mode, or something?

in future coppermine versions, we'll get rid of the switch user mode vs admin mode for regular users. Logged in users wil permanently be in admin mode then, to avoid confusion. They will not see a link "user mode" nor "admin mode".
