    I have a site with multiple admin accounts.  The site is currently only allowing a page owner to edit the page and I want any admin to be able to edit any page regardless of ownership.  How can I achieve this?

    Hi Adam,

    You can assign your admin user to the administrators default role - by default this role has unlimited access. You can also give full access to your user to all pages by managing page permissions tab.
    If the page is locked you will be able to decide whether to cancel or save the changes, then edit this page.

    Ivan,

    I do already have the admin under the default role, but it is denied access to edit any page created by another user in the administrator's role.  None of the users in the administrator's role can edit any other administrator's account. Clicking on any page owned by another admin immediately show's a Security Exception:  System.Security.SecurityException: Permission denied.

    Clicking on the Edit this page show's the same security exception.

    I am using multiple membership providers.  I'm using the default Telerik membership provider for the CMS access and a plain .Net Membership provider for the public users.  the .Net Membership provider is the default provider right now.  Maybe that could be related to this issue?

    Hi Adam,

    I am not able to reproduce the problem using multiple TelerikMembershipProvider instances. Our provider TelerikMembershipProvider inherits .net MembershipProvider Class TelerikMembershipProvider Class.
