I have a problem with the start node in the content tree for the user "Administrator". Instead of starting in the root content folder ("Content") this user starts in the first page/node on the site ("Start"). The result is that when logged in as Administrator I can't see the "Content" node or the Recycle Bin.
Here's what it looks like in the content tree:
So the first thing I do is check the user info. And here I can clearly see that the user has the wrong start node in the content tree:
But if I try to change "Start Node in Content" I can't select "Content". The highest level node I can select is the first page on the site ("Start").
Looking through different posts here on the forum, I was directed to the database table umbracoUser. Looking at that table I can see that the startStructureID of the user Administrator is wrong:
It has a value of 1060 which is the ID of the first page on my site ("Start"). So I change this manually in the database table, setting it to -1. This should (in theory) make the user Administrator get "Content" as the start node in the content node tree. But here's the wierd thing: NOTHING HAPPENS! When I log in as admin, I still get node 1060 as my start node in content. It doesn't matter if I log out/in again.
This problem seems to be isolated to the user Administrator. I can create a new test user and assign the Content node as its start node. When log in with my test user I get the Content node and the Recycle Bin.
How do I fix this issue with the Administrator user?Are there any other database tables I should be looking at?Is the Administrator user special in any way?Could the content tree start node be stored somewhere else? Is there a default value somewhere that could have been compromised?
Some background info:This is an Umbraco 4.7.1 site that was first updated to 4.8.1 and then to 4.9. But this problem was present already in the 4.7.1 version so I don't think that this problem has been caused by the upgrade.
The site has Umbraco Contour 188.8.131.52 and uComponents 5.0.0 installed.
