Support » Networking WordPress » No Super Admin Panel

  • Resolved praeix

    (@praeix)


    I was attempting a Network install. I followed all the instructions explicitly, but when I logged back into the WordPress admin area after Step 5: Enabling the Network, there was no super admin panel.

    I then proceeded to research as much of this topic as I could. All of the WordPress “help” resources pointed me to double check everything that I just did. So I did that. The wp-config.php file is correct. mod_rewrite() is enabled through my hosting. The .htaccess file is 100% correct according to the instructions. The database tables exist and have proper permissions. The blog.dir directory exists and has proper permissions. But there is NO super admin panel that shows up.

    The only thing I haven’t tried is a re-install. If anybody can help me out with this issue, I will greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks

  • Super admin panel is displayed when is_multisite and is_superadmin are true (see wp-admin/menu.php).
    is_multisite return MULTISITE if defined (verify one more time!)
    is_superadmin return $current_user->id must be 0
    try to check these points.

    Try logging in as the root administrator user on your account (usually admin, or whatever you created the blog with). Then you should see the Super Admin Menu. You can then go to the users menu and give yourself the Super Admin user privilege in Super Admin > Users.

    … when I logged back into the WordPress admin area after Step 5: Enabling the Network, there was no super admin panel.

    Yes, it’s not where you log in that matters, it’s the account you’re using; it must be one with Super Admin rights.

    You can then go to the users menu and give yourself the Super Admin user privilege in Super Admin > Users.

    It was moved. You have to go to that particular user’s profile to make them a Super admin.

    And in Step 5, you have to complete *all* those tasks. you should be forced to login again as the main blog’s original administrator. That user becomes the super Admin.

    I have the same problem: No Super Admin panel.
    My test installation has only one user: me, all steps followed, no errors.

    Works for me, multiple times on different servers.

    check and see if the db tables were created.

    same issue here no super admin….

    Same issue. I also don’t have Super Admin menu, nor do I have the ability t upgrade the Admin to Super Admin

    Ok, fixed my problem by changing where in the wp-config.php I was defining the multisite settings. Try placing these:

    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    define( 'MULTISITE', true );
    define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', true );
    $base = '/';
    define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'domain.com' );
    define( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
    define( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );

    Right underneath the DB_COLLATE definition.

    A lot of people have been placing these commands at the bottom of the file. Right under the line where it says “That’s it! Stop editing!”

    Anything under those lines does not get read.

    So yeah, stick ’em in the middle.

    i tried the code above would not work either….

    are you following these steps, in order?

    I have the same problem. mpvanwinkle77 hack works for me. But user admin ID still 1, not 0.

    I finally found the shXt problem caused the super admin no show, it is because the steps first ask you to add a line :
    define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true);

    and then after you enable the network, it ask you to add some more lines:
    and the first one is:
    define( ‘MULTISITE’, true );

    They looks very alike and I thought I have already add that one, and pass that line.

    Suggest move
    define( ‘MULTISITE’, true );
    to second line.

    Anyone reading along,please do not just paste these lines in your config file. You *must* visit the Network menu item and click the button that will add the needed tables.
