Admin permissions aren't checked for super admins. They are able to do whatever they want in the Admin CP.

Do you mean to add id in conf.php

$config['super_admin'] = "1";

It is all right. Please tell me how to fix it..

You can't edit the admin permissions of another super admin or yourself even if you are a super admin. By default the config.php file will have $config['super_admin'] = 1;

user ID of super administrator may be temporarily removed from config.php file
so that concerned admin user's profile can be edited through forum admin panel

$config['super_admin'] = "";

So, this is not an error..?


RE: Admin permission error - .m. - 10-12-2016

^ yes, that cannot be considered as an error. the message is to be changed like this
Quote:Sorry, but you cannot perform this action on the specified user as they are a super administrator.
i.e. second sentence is to be removed.
