something is wrong with 2.7 source

In the Administrator's widget and the Dashboard, "Users" is not a choice.

Also, selecting "Controls" redirects you to the login page.

I reprod this with the downloaded 2.7 source and the 2.7 source converted to a web application project.

Sometimes this could happen if your browser still keeps cookie used with another instance of BlogEngine you ran locally before. When you download source and run it, BE recognizes you as authenticated but not admin. Log off, clear cache, restart and it should go away. Pretty sure if 2.7 source has this problem it would be reported sooner :)

OK, it was user error. I cleared my cookies and all is well. Thanks!
