new admin – no worky

  • Logging in as admin works fine, total access, no problems.

    As you know using ‘admin’ is not the most secure way to go about things so I created a new user with admin rights.

    Logged out/ went to login as new ‘admin’ user.

    Now, I can log in as the new user and access BP fine but I cannot get to the admin area “Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.”

    Also, when I check ‘My blogs’ I get ‘create a blog’ but when I go to my blogs on my settings page I have the main blog already listed.

    I’m using the adapted settings to limit only 1 blog per user.

    EDIT – Scrub that this issue is resolved.

    Even though the user had been created as admin, for some reason, admin rights hadn’t been associated. All sorted now.

    There is a difference in mu between a user with ‘administrator’ rights and the user ‘admin’ who is user id ‘1’. Site admin is user id ‘1’. Different.
