    Hello BHW,

    That will be my first post here. But more than six months I'm following this lovely forum =)

    Before 30 min. I was analyzing a web site, like how many pages It has, what CMS is using etc. Then I faced with the WP setup page and typed a user name and pass... became an admin!

    Now I can create pages and posts but can't see the old ones.

    I've created a editor account for you folks to see it.

    *** Account details removed ***

    Waiting your valuable answers.

    I think you shouldn't have put out his website in public like that. Would you like it if that happened to you?

    You didn't become an admin.. just an editor.

    I'm just trying to figure out if it's a bug or something else. Then I'll remove the editor account

    Delete the account and the site from this post and just contact the admin of the site telling him about this.

    You know what I think? He's tryna play us into posting free content on his site with a social engineering ploy. If so, I'm impressed.

    It's a new web site. No backlinks, no value. I'm not trying to sell anything =)

    I think he was moving the website to a new hosting and you accidentally came!
