I have a page that is set as Registered so only registered users can access the page.

Why can I as Super Admin view the page.

More to the point, how do I set it so I can view the Registered User Page.

Thanks

super users can view / edit everything.
I don't understand "More to the point, how do I set it so I can view the Registered User Page." You state you can view it?

Thanks sorry, I meant to say I CANT view it. This gets really awkward when editing in the admin area and I have to check thing from the user point of view. I have to log out as admin then log back in as a user. Admins should be able to see everything.

Sorry for the delay by the way, I didnt get a notification of a response. Thanks

Have you tried to make the Super-admin member of the Registered Group?

Hi,

Did you try https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/master-user/ ?

Seems to be what you are looking for.

You may also try https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/login-as-user/ (it's a paid extension).

Hi

I have never understood this either.
In my experience super user is as distinct as any other and if you want it to ‘see’ other stuff, you have to assign it. It does not get access to everything.
Caveat: I have used Joomla for years and have not really mastered and still find it really confusing so it could be a huge oversight by me.

PS
I use log in as user. It is great!

A super user in all systems get access to all thats why its called super user. A super user would not allowed it self to be unlocked of anything thats why system have super users.
