As "rank" admin, or with admin powers?

If it's just their rank, you do not have "sysadmin" set as a "special" rank. Since it has its required number of messages set to zero, anyone can have that rank. But rank does not grant privileges.

If the link to the admin control panel does NOT appear for new users, they do not have admin powers.

Rank is fine thanks
Not powers either as I logged in as a new user and came up in a post as administrator not new member
and I am administrator and comes up as New member ?

Your./images/avatars/ folder does not have write permissions set, which prevents anyone from uploading an avatar.
