I'm afraid I can't reproduce this problem. Could you please try again
and take a screen shot of the error page (Alt 1 on the XO)?

You would need to be approved by the admin. I have done that. Let me
know if you have any more difficulty logging in.

Greg told me to remove all the "Moodle" options. They will show up if
you click "Show" at the bottom left of the page. Should I show
login/logout by default?
Also, the interface for "Create New Blog" will now let you enter your
own connection details to connect to your own Blogger blog.
