It's very possible there are loads of admins at opera forums, I'm only a mod though so can't see the admin control panel so can't see how to tell you what to do!

You know, your not just limited to the admin page that comes with VBulletin. It uses mysql and php so you should have no problem in setting up another Admin on your forums or site, just need to know how to administer your database if the software itself doesn't give you the option, etc.

So you are telling me i have to add some extra code to my database just to put another person as an administrator? the problem is i don't know too much about php and mysql just the basic stuff, not to much to know how to modify VBulletin code. there should be an better way.

Well, don't know any alternatives really. Most who use software should learn it themselves to run it..

You wouldn't necessarily need to learn to change code, but update your tables to give or grant the same access your admin user has to another user....

I'd suggest learning though, you will benefit from it instead of relying on others for answers to run your own site per se.

Regards.

You can add as many admins as you'd like. I'd suggest asking at the vb forum for questions specific to vb.
