There are times I want to see exactly what the users see. Is there a way for me (the administrator) to log in as a user and not as administrator. I know I could create a "user" account and just log in as that. But it would be nice to just be able to turn off my admin log in.

Hi Ted,

The site currently has three sections of left hand links. The main site links (public site that users who are not logged in see), the Member Functions links (that classmates who have joined the site and are logged in can see) and the Admin Functions links.

Other than the Admin Functions links the only items that you see that are different from the regular member loggins are:

1. You see links to member verifications if they are turned on, links to bounceback notices if there are any, etc.
2. If you click on the Forums link you see some additional forum management options.

As you mentioned you can always create a non-displaying guest member as well just to login and see exactly what they are seeing if you wish.

Ted - That was the EXACT question I wanted to ask...fortunately my wife is a guest on our site, and has been very active in helping in prior reunions, so everyone also knows her - so I use her as my "beta" half - and I've suggested our committee view your site as another example to which they can relate...Dick
