The Sweet Plugin: User Switching

13 Comments

Today’s Sweet Plugin is User Switching, which has quickly become one of my all-time favorite plugins. It allows admins to easily switch to another user, skipping the log-in-log-out process which can become quite lengthy when you’re testing a site for different users. This is one plugin that is seriously worth checking out.

The video is embedded at the top of this post’s page, with more about the plugin below.

  1. Thanks for the heads-up on this one. I know I will find uses for it. It didn’t occur to me that I might want to see another administrator’s settings. I’m glad you pointed that possibility out.

    PS. I really like the animation at the start of your video.

  2. nice find Ryan!
    very useful for developing client sites if you set them up with custom capabilities instead of just using the Editor role.

  3. Cool plugin, This will help me save time when testing users and other admins access power over the site.
