Can admin log-on as other user?

Hi All,

I've searched the FAQ's on this but can't find anything relevant, - but then again I'm not suree I know how to phrase the question.

What I want to know is can the site administrator/webmaster log-in as another user ( similar to su -username in *nix).

The reason being, I've told someone that I would try and upload some photo's in a photoalbum (Xcgal) of theirs as they are having PC problems at the moment. Thing is, I don't want them posted as coming from the webmaster.

I realise there could be a *lot* of security implications in doing this, but the webmaster should be considered safe, and I would not extend this to any other user.

Does anybody know if this is possible to achieve?

Many thanks,
Gareth Wilden

AFAIK only if you know their username and password.

i don't know how to log-on as that user, but i solved that described problem by loading that stuff up (with many pics i'm using batch-upload, this is only possible for admin) and then manually reassigning the user-id of the newly uploaded pics in database.

worked for me.
