    Hi, I am wondering ... is there an option to add a second super admin to a multisite installation. In wpmu there was an option for additional site administrators. I couldn't find such an option it in wp 3.0. I can only give administrator rights for single sites.
    Thanks for any hints!

  2. Go to Super Admin -> Users

    Check the box by the name you want to 'promote' and there's a button at the top for 'Add Network Admins.'

    I think that's what you want.

  3. Yes, the option has been moved. Go to Super Admin -> Users. You'll see checkboxes in front of usernames, and up top there's a button named something like "add as super admin". (I can't remember the exact wording)

    Hmmm, I can't find the button in beta 2. Has it moved again?

  6. And yes it's been moved again!

    Go to edit the user you want to grant Super Grover-- I mean Super ADMIN access to. In the NAME section, under roles is

    Grant this user super admin privileges for the Network.

    Check the box :) Have a party.

    Yes, I just found that one as well... Where will they put it in the next version? ;-)

    +1 for Super Grover reference :-)

  9. Thanks, @Chris_K ;)

    @jberculo, I think they're done moving it. It's been in the edit-user section since Beta-1.

    @ipstenu That's unfortunate. I'm always in for a nice game of hide and seek.

    But thanks for the help anyway! :-)

  11. @Chirs_K I think she's been hanging around me too much. :)

    +1 from me as well.

    @jberculo - pretty sure this is where it's staying. took me a bit too.
