As of Commentics v1.2, there has been the ability to create extra admins. This can be useful when managing busy sites where there are many comments to approve and maintain. During the installation of the script, a default admin account is automatically created which is assigned the role of 'Super Admin', meaning that it has a high level of privilege. This privilege allows the Super Admin access to the Manage -> Admins page. In this part of the admin panel it is possible to create, edit and delete accounts. If any other admins attempt to access this page they will instead see an error message saying "Sorry, only the super admin can access this page.". Despite the inability to access this area, all admins are still able to manage their own details (in Settings -> Administrator), the difference is that they can not manage the accounts of others. For the system to work correctly there should always be a Super Admin, so for this reason it is not possible to delete the Super Admin account, nor disable it. Disabling an account has the same affect as deleting it except it can be re-enabled at any time. At present there can only be one Super Admin. If there is enough demand for multiple Super Admins then this will be implemented. This can be asked for at the Feature Requests section of the forum.
The Commentics script uses two form fields, phone and fax, to attempt to detect robotic submission. These form fields are hidden, so when you write a comment you will not be able to see them. 'Bots', which are computer programmes that crawl websites looking for forms to submit, often to self-advertise products, generally won't notice that these fields are hidden and they will enter data into them thinking that this is what they are meant to do. This is known in Commentics as a 'trap ban'. This concept has proven to be successful in fighting comment spam, as one forum user compared the bans with their 'brute-force protection setup' and the records matched 100%, leading the user to state that the trap system is "effective and good to have". In fact it can be so effective that some users have reported seeing hundreds of trap bans. Having this many will make it difficult to manage the list properly. This is why, as of Commentics v1.6, it is possible to hide these types of bans from being displayed. To do so, in Manage -> Bans, simply click the "Hide trap bans" link at the top right of the page. The script will remember this setting so you only need to click it once. To see them again at any point, just click the same link which will now say "Show trap bans".
