Post As Another Member

A modification for Simple Machines Forum version 2.1 that adds the ability for a member to post as another member. Members with permission to do this can create new posts in the name of another member, and can change the attributed author of any post they can modify.

When a post is attributed to another member using this mod, the post will truly and fully belong to that other member in every sense.


Settings

Adds a "Post as another member" permission to the board permission profiles available in Administration Center ► Permissions ► Edit Profiles. The permission can be granted to any given membergroup in any given permission profile.

The permission is always enabled for administrators.

It seems pretty good, I'm going to try it on a test site that I have. And since we are leaving the translation to Latin Spanish!

Awesome mate - great mod !

I'm pretty sure this mods the post ID in the database? In which case I can make changes and then (if I wanted to ) uninstall and delete the mod and the changes I had made would remain. Yes?

It changes the values of id_member, poster_name, poster_email, etc., for a post.

Any changes made using this mod will remain in place after the mod is uninstalled, yes.

This mod can also be used as an April fools joke :P :D.

I wouldn't recommend that. April Fool's jokes should be easily reversible and should not change any of the forum's real data. This mod makes real changes, so each and every change that you made as a "joke" would also need to be manually changed back afterwards. Moreover, in the meantime the posts really, actually would belong to whichever members that you reattributed them to, with all the implications that entails.

Yes, I know :). Of course, you have to be careful who you do things like this to ;)... maybe someone from the forum staff :D.

so if I created a post and then edited it, I would be able to change my name to someone else's? or is this only when you create a post?
For example, my case in point, I'm an admin on a 200K member group on fb.... trying to create a forum/website outside of fb for our use as I feel we've outgrown what all fb allows (not to mention it kills my ocd not being organized) and if I were to post some info from a member on the fb group to the forum and they later join, I could then transfer the post to their name?

There's already a 2.0.* mod available in the modifications section.
