Admin role is gone?

Hi,

When I login as Admin I do not see Admin Panel link at the bottom of the screen, why so?

I think I might have assigned Admin user to a different role though.

Prior to that when I login as Admin I would not see any category forums in configuration even though I could see them when I log out.

Could anyone explain? Did I mess up some role assignments or is is a bug?

Thank you.

You probably made your Admin user a "non-admin."

Did you happen to create another admin account? This can be a good idea in just this type of situation .. which I know doesn't help you now if you didn't.

You could try altering the jforum_user_groups table ... make sure the Admin user (ID #2) has an Admin Group (Group #2) in the group_id field. You may want to confirm the Admin UID too (from the jforum_groups table).

But here is a short list of what it should look like. Your Admin acct UID results should be missing the "group ID 2 / user_id 2" entry.

select * from jforum_user_groups;
+----------+---------+
| group_id | user_id |
+----------+---------+
| 1 | 1 |
| 2 | 2 | <----Admin account, Admin Group
| 1 | 2 | <----Admin account, General Group
| 2 | 3 |
| 1 | 3 |

Thank you.
I was missing:
| 2 | 2 | <----Admin account, Admin Group

After altering the table it works fine!
