STUCK in a non-admin ID

Well, I definitely set something up incorrectly, I have a user that when they log in they can see confidential reports.

I generated some content and for some reason, this user name was on several pieces of the content. So I clicked on the user name and am now stuck, there's no logout button. I'm locked out of my test site!

Aside from restoring from last night's server backup, since I can't get to my Backup & Restore module, any other ideas?

The only login link I have is at the bottom of the front page, then logout shows at the top. But not for this user, which of course indicates other problems as well.

I fixed it! I opened the site in a different browser, logged in and gave the id admin rights.

Now I have to figure out how this "UCACN Secured" id can log out.

Hi again, the reason this all started is because I generated content, and all kinds of authors showed up. I don't understand why this happened?

Hi Susanne

Devel has a "Generate content" link. Did you also use the "Generate users" feature?

No, just generate content. Those are actual listed users. One friend, and several people from the IT department.

Ah, OK. In that case, the generate content randomly assigned authors to the content.
