Allow all admins to purge cache

Post by Arty »

Currently only founder has permission to purge cache, but it might happen that other administrator might need to purge cache: if another administrator has updated files or something broke.

Wouldn't it make sense to allow all administrators to purge cache? That function is completely harmless.

Agree, restricting to founders makes no sense.

How about requiring a_server so that there is some granularity on the permission.

I agree that there is nothing really harmful that can be done with "Purge the Cache", just throwing an idea out.
