Where is the admin panel??
« on: October 10, 2016, 08:53:56 PM »
I set up my board, but it appears that I logged-in as only a member and not the admin.  I have no control over anything, and I cant find a way to let the board know that I am the admin.

Any help would be appreciated.

During the installation, you should've set a Administrator account. That's the account you should login with.
If you accidentally removed the admin account, removed its privileges or forgot which account it is; please have a look here:

Please do not PM for support - anything else is usually OK.

Thanks. I did an auto install from my host and dont recall seeing anything like this.  Think I'll delete the board and try again.
