    Adding Users

    David Milward Newbie

      I've now discovered that I cannot add new users to the portal.

      I can use both the "user" and "admin" pre-set users, however on adding my own users and then logging in as a one of them I get the following exception thrown :

      19:06:58,141 ERROR [CoyoteAdapter] An exception or error occurred in the contain
