this is my second time on the forum board, so, again, apologies in advance for any mistakes that I may make.
As advised here is a new thread for my Admin Controls issue:-
I have upgraded from v 1.4 to v1.5.20 and I have had the same Admin access problems and have followed all of the mentioned changes within that thread without successfully gaining admin access.
I have re-set my password and this seemed to work and I gained access after which I could upload images - hooray!!
However, the menu list contains amongst other items "Show admin controls".
When clicked - nothing happens, and so I am unable to check or change any admin settings. Some help would be appreciated.
I have checked, as advised, that the same thing happens with every theme option, which it does.
However, within the default theme after clicking on "Show admin controls" it does not change to "hide ADMIN controls" as it does within theme Styleguide.
Also, within the theme "styleguide" - after clicking on "Hide Admin Controls" it produces an "error" message that reads "you don't have permission to access this page"
Within the other themes, eg eyeball, after clicking on "Show admin controls" it then displays an information message/bar that reads "Turning display of admin controls on..." and nothing happens!
I hope this helps?
