Remote Admin Profile Issue

Post by Tuck Fheman »

I can login remotely to the admin panel via the Administrator account, but when I create an Admin profile it hangs at loading the language files.

Is there some certain permission/access I must give a profile for it to login remotely? I was just giving access to stop/start tourneys to someone.

Please describe your admin profile so I can re-create it here locally. Unfortunately there's no export/import function in the profile editor.

Ok, I found the problem. The status dialog waits for the last list to get initialized before it closes. And that happens to be the blacklist data. But since your admin profile does not give access to the blacklist, that data never arrives. The user can still just close the dialog with the "X" and continue on. I'll fix that in the next update.

You can get around that in the mean time by editing the profile and give ReadOnly access to "Toolbar: Lists|Blacklist" on the Acct tab.

To give the ability to start/stop tournaments, set these profile rights on the Trny tab:

Click the All button and give everything ReadOnly rights (or just the fields you want them to see like Name and Status). Then give ReadWrite rights to "NonCreator Access" and "Toolbar: Action".

Speaking of "NonCreator Access", I don't think I ever explained this new feature. It can be used by sites that have "agents" that recruit players and run their tables. You can use this setting to restrict their access to only the tables and accounts that they created themselves. Each account and each game has a Creator field that gets set automatically to the admin that created it. This is Gold-only feature as is the whole Admin Profile system.
