While developing my subscription software for Joomla, I found it very difficult to find a solution for determining the super admin. It turns out it was actually a simple solution and this tutorial will show you how to do that.
$user = JFactory::getUser();//first get the logged in user if($user->get('usertype') =='Super Administrator')://Now check their user type // This user is super admin else: // Not super so kick them out! endif;
That’s it. Now you should be able to get your user admin level. Consider leaving a comment.
