We are really pleased to report that a respected Joomla author has rated our Master User plugin among the top 25 Joomla Extensions. It is very nice to be listed among such esteemed company as JCE, Akeeba Backup and Admin Tools Pro.

It is a really simple plugin, but it obviously fulfills a need. It allows selected administrator users to log into the front end of the Joomla site as if they were another registered user. It can be very useful if the user is experiencing difficulties with the site, because it means that the administrator can experience the site as if they were that user. We often use it in that way ourselves.

We have not actually developed the plugin much in recent years, beyond ensuring that it remains secure and compatible with the latest releases of Joomla. We have always resisted making it more complicated than it needs to be, preferring to keep it as a simple plugin that does one job well. In that way we can continue to keep it as a free download.

Still it may be that there is a place for a 'pro' version that does more. In that case we would be interested to hear from users if there are any additional features that would be really useful. If you have any suggestions please let us know, through our support forum, or facebook page.
