The one I want to address here is the administrative console.
So I log in to the front page (blogs.jhu.edu) as system successfully. I then go to my own administative console and try to issue the "change_journal_type gooftroop community" command to change a journal from personal to a community journal
"system, you are not authorized to use this command". I *can* use the ban_set command to ban people on my own install, though, thankfully (?).
What's going on here? This seems "partially documented" at best. Is there a WikiWikiWeb or some other community documentation?
The "Privilege management" page says I have the "*" argument to the "admin" privilege, if that helps. (Not that I know how the arguments there work, either.) It's a stock makesystem.pl system account.
