I created two new roles:
-Test Role
-Test Role User Admin

Test Role User Admin has the following permissions:
administerusersbyrole module
-create users
-edit users with role Test Role
user module
-access user profiles
-administer users

I created a new user testuser and gave him the Test Role

I created a new user testadminuser and gave him the Test Role User Admin.

i logged in as testadminuser, tried to edit the testuser and got the error "You do not have permission to edit testuser."

What am I doing wrong?

Hi, I'm sorry if this is bad form, I'm not sure of the "rules".

I'd really like to take advantage of the features this module provides. Any ideas on what the problem might be?

I'm using it with delegate roles and the only way I could make it work was to edit, then click ROLES, then click SUBMIT. Then edit would work.

Sorry for the slow response time.. I've been occupied with tons of non-drupal-related work :^/

In versions prior to 1.3 (released today), you needed to *also* select "edit users with role authenticated user" in order to be able to edit testuser (since testuser has both role "authenticated user" and role "Test Role"). This usability issue was reported and fixed in #256469: Allows edit/delete of admin?.

Please try it again when you have a chance and let me know whether it works for you now.

Sorry for the delay in responding.

We've since upgraded to drupal 6 and it is working.
