I wanna be a Super User too

Is it possible to have more than one super user? If so how would one set that up?

I don't think there is any difference between "admin" and a user you create that is put in the "Administrator" group. Except that you can not delete the admin user. I could be wrong.

That's not quite right - the superuser can log in as other users and do a few other account-related things which normal admins can't.

I just logged in as an admin that I created and could then log in as me thru her user profile in the dashboard. So, she being ad admin could than log in as me, a super user.

There are a few things that we have traditionally tied to the Admin account (and not the administrator group). Typically this is just stuff that is too complex to predict edge cases on. (letting someone with editor rights into change page defaults, which may let them delete content they should have access to..etc)

In more recent versions of concrete5 we've added specific permission flags for most of these things. If you goto Dashboard > Settings > Access you can tweak these.

@frz: Thanks for information. I have been "skooled" :)

Is it possible provide the sign in as user, only to accounts with less privileges, ie not let admin log in as super admin, but let them log in as a client.

For now I have it disabled but the button still appears it would be nice to be able to not show the button if a user group does not have access to the feature

I have noticed that only the "admin" account can perform certain functions. Stuff like add new pages, modify page type defaults, etc, etc. When logged in as a user which has been placed into the "administrators" group, I can't do any of that... I have to log in as "admin".

This creates an issue because we have two people building the site, so we need more than one super admin.

Is there anyway I can elevate a user to the same level of "admin"??
