Admin Powers Disappeared
I just logged onto my board after an extended absence and found that my "admin" button is not showing up, so I have no way to access that section.

As far as I can remember this hasn't happened before, so I hope it can be easily resolved.

Thanks

I thought it might have been a fluke so I just signed in again, but I still can't access the Admin Center.

Re: Admin Powers Disappeared
That is odd because it shows you as the only admin, the only thing I can think of that would cause such a thing is if your browser is seeing a cached version of the board and not loading it properly. What browser are you using PowerLady?

It showed you as the admin in the database as well as in the board's Edit Users screen. I can try to reproduce this myself by logging in as you but I'd want your permission before doing that.

Let me know what browser you're using and we can go from there. Also if you'd mind me logging in to try to reproduce this under your name. Doesn't sound like any bug we've seen yet, but I will ask BbBoy to take a look at this for you.

Re: Admin Powers Disappeared
I'm using the normal IE6 browser, which is the same one I've been using the whole time. I even tried deleting my cookies, but that didn't help either.

Sure, you can sign in under my name and see if the same thing happens.

I'm not sure if this makes any difference, but I just changed to a new ISP. I can't see where that would affect specific links on the board though. If anything, I probably wouldn't be able to sign in at all.

I wish I had been able to reproduce this PowerLady, but I was able to see the Admin button, but I am going to whisper something to you so you should be able to reach the admin area using this.

PowerLady - when you load your page (after signing in) try holding down the Shift key as you press the refresh button. That'll force IE to go out to the server and reload everything on the page. If something was goody in your cache, that would clear it up.

And of course, if Admin's whisper solves the problem, just ignore me. :smile:

Thanks for trying BbAdmin and Zherog, but still nothing worked. Hopefully one of the ideas will bear fruit eventually.

Re: Admin Powers Disappeared
Wonder of wonders, I went back to the board after posting here just now, and the Admin button reappeared. At first it only showed up in a couple of forums but not on the listing page, and then it suddenly popped in.

Thanks again for the help, and I will keep my fingers crossed that it doesn't happen again.

That is wonderful that it's showing for you now PowerLady. I don't know why it wouldn't show up, but hopefully it will work from here on out. :smile:

Thanks for the help Zherog. It's nice to have other members posting helpful information. We don't mind that kind of posting at all. :wink: :biggrin:

Re: Admin Powers Disappeared
It's been sporadically popping in and out, but I'm not going to worry about it now as I can still access the page if I click around enough.

Thanks again!:smile:
