    I’m trying to add another admin to my blog, and everything seems just fine, he accepts the mail he gets, and follows the activation link. It even says that he’s in – but he isn’t. Can’t find him anywhere, not in his or my profile. What to do?

    Both of you, should log out of wordpress, clear your browser cache and cookies, restart your browser and then take another look. It could be a cookie or browser cache issue.

    The other thing I always suggest is to not make anyone an administrator on your blog, because that gives them the ability to completely wipe out your blog, post, pages, etc., and there have been far more than a few show up here in the forums with just that problem. There is a disagreement or falling out and poof, the blog is gone.

    Just something to keep in mind.
