Good evening, I want to know how I can give admin to someone else, because I really look for it and I can not find it.
I look forward to your favorable responses
Thank you very much

Members --> View the memberlist --> (Find the member you're looking for) --> Modify Profile --> Primary Membergroup --> Change to "Administrator"

Or go to that trusty member profile and change the Primary Membergroup  ;)

I kinda went the long way around, didn't I :P :D.

If you are planning this only to give out admin rights to additional admins, and not completely handing over the forum, I would suggest first creating a new membergroup with all permissions allowed for that. ( The original admin group, membergroup 1, is a special case and has some added security to it. )

How you can help SMF
