[solved] superuser confusion

Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded a client site to the latest dev version of PW. All good there. Then wanted to ensure another superuser used the UiKit theme without them having to do anything.

Scenario with names changed to protect the innocent:

My username: Fred

Other username: Barney

Fred logged in and edited Barney's user account.

Username now shows as 'fred' with Fred's email address, ie PW thinks it's Fred although Display Name shows Barney Rubble and the page id is definitely Barney's.

Barney's username and email address are lost???

Regardless of what I put in Barney's username field, PW still thinks it's Fred and changes Barney's username to fred-1 and puts Fred's email address in Barney's user record email field.

Is this expected behaviour or a bug?

How can I change Barney's user account back to its original values?

- Using PW v3.0.106

Could the culprit can be a Password Manager like LastPass or another one ?

I do use LastPass but ensured that Barney's password field was blank before saving his record.

When I changed Barney's username to 'barney', PW said the user already existed and changed it to fred-1, ie PW thought I editing Fred's record (I think!)

Yep I see, it happen to me with LastPass (could be something different here) but to be sure, did you tried by disabling the PasswordManager ?
