Linked Accounts - Post As 3.2.0


   (12 reviews)

9 Screenshots

Linked Accounts allows your members to link one or more accounts then quickly switch between them. You have a full range of options about which usergroups can use the Linked Accounts system and which usergroups cannot be linked to. The POST AS feature allows the user with linked accounts to create/reply to a topic using a Linked Account. Each action is logged so you can keep a track of what linked account users do.

The Linked Accounts system could be useful for fan fiction forums, roleplaying forums, or just those of you with multiple accounts (e.g, John Doe, Administrator, Forum News).


  • Linked Accounts is integrated to Login system of IPS4, so to control the number of failed logins, Reset failed login count (minutes) on ACP -> Login Handlers -> Login Settings.
  • This version contains an upgrader, so you can keep on using accounts created on this app for IP.Board 3.4.

Another great app by Adrino Faria!  This is a perfect way for those of us who have setup different accounts to manage certain aspects of our community but are stuck doing such work ourselves (until, we can hire other's to take over said roles).  It's just perfect. It also provides a way for "allowed users" to toggle between their separate accounts to help further protect their privacy (a public vs. masked identity).  Sadly, we do still live in times were such things are necessary no matter where you live (if not becoming even more important to do so once again).

So, thanks and great work Adrino!

I should also mention that I currently use like 12 of Adrino's apps/plugins (11 paid / 1 free) and I love them all!  He does good work.

I must apologize to Adrino as I've been very poor about writing reviews.  I promise, I will try to correct that!

... and there's more of his apps I want to purchase and use, but I can't keep up with him and ironically... I can think of a ton of things I'd love to see him bring fourth as he's the man that could get it done.  So much to do and so little time.

Thanks again!

This is by far the most important plugin on the marketplace for me, and its existence is the reason why I purchased an Invision Community license.  I was searching for a new forum software for my community, and due to the specific nature of that community we really -- really -- needed to utilize a Linked Accounts / Post As plugin.  For me, it was basically make or break.  Finding this, along with the support that the creator has provided with keeping it working after upgrades and fixing bugs drove it home.

Honestly?  If the author asked for it, I would even pay a renewal every 6 months to support the plugin creator.

Thank you for this!

Great App, Works perfect. It's exactly what I needed for my staff to use their member rank alt accounts easier.

I love that this application brings the "Log in as <user>" function from an ACP-only side of things to a feature that is permissible to selected groups on the front end. I find it Great for Moderators as both a support tool, or to switch back and forth between their non-Moderator accounts, or even for members if one's site allows multiple-accounts-per-user.

Thanks to the author for fixing the bug I discovered w/in 24-hours of it being reported by the update.

Working great now!

Thank you very much, this is what I am looking for, to post as a person myself and as an official member account to post announcement. Been using two browsers to perform such actions, but now it's so much easier! Will report if I found any issues. Merry Christmas! :)
