Unfortunately this evening, I made myself admin of the website and ALL of the work I had done under the previous Admin title (the author) was lost when I deleted that email and account.
Purchased a template because I’m clueless and in a hurry to get a website. The author needed my HostGator and WP usernames and PWs, and helped by installing the template Demo. I spent two days editing this great thing. When I figured I didn’t need the author’s help any longer, I deleted him from the Users. Well that took away the Demo and any work I did under that User identity. Makes sense. So under my User identity, I reinstalled the Demo, ready to start over. It completed and prompted me to log back in… but I couldn’t using my email/username. Because just maybe I used the ones I was sent after the first Demo install and it worked. The Demo install erased me as a User and had the author back as Admin. And again I can’t change the name or email to mine.
Basically, if I want to use the Demo and the “One-click install” feature, that User and email have to permanently be on the account.
This doesn’t seem right… buyers of this template should be able to make themselves admins and remove the author’s email address without losing the Demo.
I’m so confused! What am I missing?
