one admin only? (8 posts)

    Never noticed this, but I guess this is the limitation: MU can only be administrated by one admon account, right? If I create more admins on top-level they become admins for the admin-blog, but not for the whole MU-setup. A small limitation when you want to maintain the MU-blogs with a few others.

    Anyone?

    Backend >> Site Admin >> Options

    There is a textbox where you can add the names of users you want to be admins. Never tried it though.

    And you added them through the site admin interface, towards the bottom under options?

    I have two admins on my site; works fine. Add them through the menu pumkinslayer noted above, NOT through the user section of the admin blog.

    One more thing though: when an admin which is not me is adding more users only I receive an Email that a new blog/user is created. The other Admins don't receive that Email. I couldn't find a way how these other Admins could receive that Email as confirmation. I would expect that the Admin who creates news users and blogs would receive these Emails.

    So somehow the first Admin (super Admin) receives all MU-admin Emails. Am I missing something, a parameter, a few options?

    Nope, that's the default behaviour, and no, there's not setting in the backend to change it.

    that's also how I expect MU to behave - one email was set up as the Site Admin, so that person would be the one expected to get the auto-emails. Also, most MU sites out there are run by only one or two admins.

    I found the 'Site Admin Email' in the Options page though. I can change that default email-account which is fine. Thanks for the help!
