    Suppose, you are an admin of a vbulletin forum but with limited permissions i.e you can't change the forum theme. Now the other admin (your partner) whose account has permissions to change the theme has disappeared. There is an urgent need to change the forum theme to default theme. Is there any way to forcefully change the forum theme to default theme using your account (which does not have permissions to change the theme)? Maybe a trick? or a hack? or anything like that?

    Clarification: I am not trying to hack/steal/do something illegal. I am just trying to change the theme of a forum I am an admin on (but my account does not have permissions to change the theme) and the admin whose account can change the theme has disappeared for some time now. I only wish to change the theme. The reason I want to change the theme is because I think the current theme has bugs.

    If somebody can help in this regard, I will be very grateful. I can also pay a little amount if someone is willing to help me for money (I cannot afford to pay much).

    Base on these information, I think no one should help OP. Sorry, but I have to say so. May be you write these words with sincerely purpose, but hey, It is internet, who know that for sure!

    All I can learn from this thread is that someone who claim he is admin but does not have the admin account want to do admin account work...

    I didn't lie about a single word in my OP and I can prove it too to the person willing to help me. I do not want a way to hack vBulletin or anything like that. I am just looking for a way to change the theme of a forum with an admin account that does not have the permission to change the theme. That is all I am looking for.

    I don't really understand what you mean by this but I do have an admin account as I said in the OP. It just does not have the permission to change forum themes. And all I am looking to do is change the theme to the default theme of the forum.

    I cannot be done unless the Super Admin has given you such permissions.

    To be a Super Admin to need to have your account in the config file, which will require FTP access.
