My administrator permission is lost

  1. I've launched a second blog today using the same login data and tried to invite my employees to join this second blog (private) when I suddenly realised that my administrator rights and functions are lost. When I go to Manage my blogs I can see both my blogs saying I am contributor only. Besides the panel on the left does not show any administrave functions any more like USER. That's why I can't change the USER ROLES. Anyone has a solution for this? Thx a lot for helping. Markus
    PS: I am not a professional in this matter. I would appreciate simple answers. Thx

    The blog I need help with is

    Can you help me?

    Hi, I accidentally exchange my admin account with a regular user. I seems my WP has no longer and admin. How can I revert that?


  9. danielbachhuber

    @federicomassarino Yep! I've bumped you back up to admin. Feel free to contact support with any other questions.

  12. Yay! I kept hearing the ♫ Rescue Me ♫ refrain. lol :D

  13. Great!
    Thanks Daniel.

  14. Well this has happened to me as well. The strange thing is that I did not accidentally change it. In fact somehow I was sent an email inviting me to be an author and supposedly responded to that email in the affirmative? Of course not, but it's a mystery. Could one of you lovely happiness engineers help me please? Thanks

  15. hello! I need help because I cannot log into my wp-admin anymore. When I try to get a new password, it sais my Email is unknown. Anybody any ideas? The problem-url is:
    Thanx a lot!

  16. Hi we have the same problem.

    Our site is and we don't know why, we have received an e-mail notifying that we have requested the change of our admin e-mail of our site. This notification also includes a link which we have follow besides we didn't ask for this change.

    · Now, we appear as collaborators instead of administrators of our blog, with no option to change it. On the other hand, a second blog appears and our account is now the administrator of this blog which has no content.

    ¿Could you please help us to recover our administrator permission?
