    Either one of two things. Either the user wasn't edited and added as an admin or there is something else going on which is beyond my scope of knowledge. Maybe you could post a screenshot of the users profile in the admin cp

    If so, when I go there it only shows me one administrator.
    There I can click view control panel log or edit permissions.
    But its only one user that appear there.

    Edit your config.php...

    If you're talking all out admin capabilities...I believe you also need to edit your config.php file to include his/her User ID number. Look for:

    Code:
        //    ****** USERS WITH ADMIN LOG VIEWING PERMISSIONS ******
        //    The users specified here will be allowed to view the admin log in the control panel.
        //    Users must be specified by *ID number* here. To obtain a user's ID number,
        //    view their profile via the control panel. If this is a new installation, leave
        //    the first user created will have a user ID of 1. Seperate each userid with a comma.
    $config['SpecialUsers']['canviewadminlog'] = '1,2';
    
        //    ****** USERS WITH ADMIN LOG PRUNING PERMISSIONS ******
        //    The users specified here will be allowed to remove ("prune") entries from the admin
        //    log. See the above entry for more information on the format.
    $config['SpecialUsers']['canpruneadminlog'] = '1,2';
    
        //    ****** USERS WITH QUERY RUNNING PERMISSIONS ******
        //    The users specified here will be allowed to run queries from the control panel.
        //    See the above entries for more information on the format.
        //    Please note that the ability to run queries is quite powerful. You may wish
        //    to remove all user IDs from this list for security reasons.
    $config['SpecialUsers']['canrunqueries'] = '1';
    
        //    ****** UNDELETABLE / UNALTERABLE USERS ******
        //    The users specified here will not be deletable or alterable from the control panel by any users.
        //    To specify more than one user, separate userids with commas.
    $config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] = '1';
    
        //    ****** SUPER ADMINISTRATORS ******
        //    The users specified below will have permission to access the administrator permissions
        //    page, which controls the permissions of other administrators
    $config['SpecialUsers']['superadministrators'] = '1,2';
    jwm

    Is there any chance that its something wrong with my VB?
    When I try add a administrator I do like this:
    search for the user, then click on the user, on top right I change usergroup to administrator.
    afterwards I goto usergroups - admin permission (but the new user I added doesnt appear there, only the admin login I made while installing VB),

    would appreciate all help I can get, should I try install the VB once again ?
