We are working on the first of many sites that we will be converting over to Backdrop. Therefore, we may have a number of questions as we try to get through this learning curve.
To start with, the Primary Admin account that installed and set up Backdrop has rights as Editor and Admin, but Authenticated is grayed out. Under this user name, this admin can NOT see certain “posts” in the dashboard/content display of “posts”
Another user name that was added as admin, has rights as Editor and Admin, but Authenticated is grayed out. This second admin can see all the posts in the dashboard/content display of “posts”, including the ones the original admin can not see.
Does anyone have an idea as to why multiple admins get different views?
We have also noticed that some of the “posts” displayed on the front page are not listed in the “dashboard/content display of posts.”
Is there any way to see a listing of ALL of our posts, anywhere in the dashboard?
One final question is we are trying to find out: where can we edit or alter the number of posts that are displayed on the home page.?
Thank You for any help or advise.
Well, this is very odd. The only logical explanation would be permissions. I believe that the super user automatically has all permissions, but it is possible that any other admin MIGHT not have permissions to view some content. So, make sure that all admins have all the "node" permissions:
However, given your screenshot, I don't think this is the problem. Because, the second user can see some nodes of a single content type, but not others.
We have had two similar issues recently here in the forum.
At least one of these may have been tied to a CORE issue that has been fixed, but is not yet in the latest release of Backdrop. So, your problem might be with a fluke bug - if you are using PHP 8.0. If so, the problem should be resolved with the next release.
