If you want admin blocks to appear on the screen after
you have logged in, amend line 59 of login.php3 from:
$ary['section'] = "User";
$ary['section'] = 'Admin';
I've also found it useful to change config.php3 to move
the 'User Profile' navigation item from the admin menu
to the normal menu - ie move:
$menuitem = array(
'name' => "User Profile",
'link' => $_PSL['rooturl'] . "/profile.php3",
'perm' => "user",
'module' => ""
up to line 303 or so. Just seems more logical to me!
