Question Everyone becomes an administrator

More
4 years 7 months ago #1 by Templecloud
A few months ago almost all the registered members of the site/forum suddenly changed to become administrators, and I can't find any way of turning them back to ordinary registered users. This is a site I set up and do occasional maintenance on when asked - but suspect that is was not updated and may have been hacked, or something corrupted. I have updated whatever I can, including Kunena to the latest version (although Joomla Extension Manager still shows the version as 3.0.3), and tried changing access levels back to default settings. However, nothing has made a difference and all but a few members still appear as adminstrators and can edit all posts.

I searched the forum, and it looks as though there is another thread on this topic, but unfortunately in German. I would really appreciate it if anyone can help with this.

Site report below...

Thanks

G'day,Templecloud, and welcome to Kunena.

I suggest that you look at the topic All users have Administrator privileges . In that topic a number of different scenarios are discussed that cover 99% of the reasons why this happens (sometimes ... in extremely rare circumstances ... when people change things on their websites). It is not normal for this to be a Kunena issue; this is more a Joomla site management issue.
