I don't get it

confused
I've installed the latest Geeklog (for the first time) to try out, and am having some wierd things going on.

I've taken a theme, copied it, and made modifications to get the color scheme I want. That shows up fine. However, I noticed that the left column after an install doesn't show any user functions after logging. The login and password fields are still there, even though on the right it says I am logged in as Admin. There are no user functions, the What's New is on the right (and that's with installing with XSilver as the default again).

If I try to re-install, and indicate that it is an upgrade, I get an error message that appears to be MySQL indicating that there is something already there. If I delete the MySQL database and re-create a blank one, I can do a fresh install. But I get the same thing! Aside from the path stuff, config.php is the same as what I started with.

Is there some file that is created on the site that I need to delete to start over from scratch?

Found my own answer (you like those best, I'm sure!)

In the config.php file, I had the site URL variable set this way:

$_CONF['site_url'] = 'http://www.GoDogsOmaha.org';

(that's the way the members of this club wanted the site to appear). Anyway, after examining the cookie log in my browser, I saw that I had two sets of cookies, one with the Titlecaps as listed above, and a second one with all lowercase (from an install done two days ago that I deleted and started over). When I changed it to:

$_CONF['site_url'] = 'http://www.godogsomaha.org';

it works just fine.
