How can i hide "Super Users" from Users Manager list in the Joomla backend from other user groups?

I have allowed my "Editors" to access a limited version of the Joomla backend. But they can still see me (Super User) listed in the User Manager. They cannot edit my profile, which is good, but how can I hide the Super User row itself from other user groups?



Unfortunately, this can only be done using a core modification. Open the file administrator/components/com_users/views/users/tmpl/default.php and, just above the line

$canEdit   = false;

Add the following line:


This will prevent super users from being displayed to anyone who is a non super user.

    +1 but would recommend a Template Override instead.
