    Is the third person an admin in XenForo? The super admin thing only bumps up an existing admin.

    Can you paste the line of code here from your config.php file?

    $config['superAdmins'] = '1,2,3';

    And those three values match the user IDs of the administrators?

    What can superadmins do which admins can't? (no messing about here I really do not know :oops:)

    A Super Administrator can not be created or edited by an Administrator and always has all permissions in the ACP.

    Good thing that check is in place otherwise some random person would have become a super admin. :LOL:

    So should I take the "1" out of my config.php and leave only the "4" since for some reason I am member #4? There are no other members yet, so I don't know what happened to 1, 2 or 3.

    Yes.

    Is this a clean installation?
    Have you perhaps created and deleted some users?

    Yes. You will have to put the idea of the admin that you want set up as super admin.
