Setting Admins Accounts App

I am helping someone set up a new UNA site.  I wanted to set myself as a admin.  Site owner downloaded the Accounts app but unlike on my site there is no gear icon where you can select and choose a action.  Been awhile since I did a fresh install.  Any pointers?

    • You can change your role and others' roles by going to their profile (our yours) and clicking "set membership" from the buttons towards the top of the profile. You'll probably need to click the three dots icon first. I haven't found this option in Studio either.

      • No, changing memembership level did not give access to /studio.  On my site, when going to accounts I have a little gear icon over to the very right where I can perform options on the member; such as resetting passwords and such.  I am not seeing that on the new site.

        • Usually the first profile made is the admin profile. To get to studio click on profile pic in upper right hand corner and then go to studio wich should look like a wrench. The gear icon is to change email etc

          • I thank you guys, but my problem is that i would like to make another account an admin, but i can't on the site that i'm working on. I can login as admin, but i don't have any way of changing a random user to have admin capabilities. There is no wheel next to a user in studio > accounts to change the membership and if i go to profile page and change it in "set membership" it won't give that user admin capabilities.

            • I think I found a semi solution because I think although UNA only allows one admin profile you can give another profile all the same permissions including switch to another profile. Login under admin and go to permissions app and upgrade your profile to moderator  using the admin profile and give the moderator permission to  "Switch to any profile". This would give a moderator the ability to become the admin profile. Also Admins can create another profile that has same Admin powers in the same menu I showed you "Create New Profile".

                If you need "to open the Studio" for other accounts, then in the Studio->Accounts->Manage page you need to choose the "Set Operator role" action and mark the "operator" value.

                • Maybe it is a problem with the accounts app?  Because you see, I can't do what you suggest because the gear icon is missing?  The site was installed with Softaculous under cPanel.  Are there any issues with the Softaculous UNA; if so I suggest removing UNA from Softaculous.  Is there an issue with the Accounts app; I could uninstall and delete the scripts and then download again from the market.

                  • OK, refresh my memory; how do I delete an app?

                      • OK, UNA is 12.1.0.  The Accounts app is 12.0.4.

                        • I think the installation is broken.  I remember that people often had issues when trying to install Dolphin from Softaculous and I think the same may be true for UNA.  I went to the launcher and there was no icon to manage apps.  However, the menu link is there; just no icon so I didn't know it was there.

                              • If you noticed from my screenshot, there is no icon.

                                • I’d suggest exporting a backup of the site and doing a clean install. You are able to more easily add admins when you install and you might get the missing icon fixed as well.

                                  • On my site when I go to accounts, I have a gear icon at the right that is for different options for the accounts.  On this new install; and we reinstalled the site, there is no gear icon.
