Hello again. I just installed the askbot in my computer. When I did the syncdb command, I was asked to create a super user, and I did. But now that askbot is running, I don't see where I can login.

By the way, it was very hard to install, I have to install at least 20 different things.

I've added commands add_admin and remove_admin to the forum.

So turn user into a super user you will need to type:

python add_admin <id>

where <id> is numeric id of the user, which you can get from the url in his/her account. There is a complimentary remove_admin command (the user is not deleted, only admin status is removed).

You only need to do this for the first admin user, later you can access the django admin interface at url /admin and do those things more conviniently.

The admin that you've created in the beginning will not work - just say 'no' when you run syncdb, will update the manual tomorrow.

One last thing, the "advanced" admin interface - with site settings is still in the experimental branch and I hope to finally merge it to the master this weekend.
