[resolved] Edit Comments Page comes up as "restricted area" (3 posts)

    Hi again. d=

    When in the dashboard - as admin - I cannot click the edit comments link. Instead, a restricted area notice comes up with a go back link.

    As far as I can tell, it's only the comments page, everything else works like it should. As it's a new blog, I don't know if it suddenly changed or if it's always been like that..

    Any ideas?

    I guess I fixed it. I created a new account and gave it adman capabilities. Then I logged in at that and was able to see that this new account could access it then WP was not treating the "admin" account as admin (even though it said it was). So with my new account, I granted this ability to my admin account and my problem seems solved.

    But, this is really strange and I'm not quite sure why it happened in the first place.
