Its a feature that Cpanel has and is extreemly useful and i think it would be great in IPB aswell as i constantly get asked to take a look in people accounts for one reason or another but they always have to change their passwords.
Anyway basicaly what im saying is i think it would be a neat feature if the admin with ID1 could use their password to login to any member account
That's quite a bit of a security risk in forum software.
I, personally, don't like this mod. Too risky (from a security standpoint) ... I would not want that power.
I would not be for it. With the ability to do such things comes liability also. Having a skeleton key into any account would put the board owner under automatic suspicion if something went awry within a user's account.
Maybe, but say its a feature that can be activated/deactivated, its a feature in cpanel and i dont see any problems with peoples webhosting companies because of it.
