Well, the rights associated with Superuser changed in 2.2. You now need to 
have a dedicated login to create objects. Superuser should only be used as 
a "last help" login. I don't even remember the password I have as a 
Superuser on my server and will have to change it when I will require the 
superuser login ;-)

Here is how to proceed.

- In the management interface, got to /acl_users
- Click on "add..."
- Enter the username, password, ... and give him at least the role "Manager"
- Restart your browser
- Log into your management screen as this newly created user
- Goto the / folder, select the "Ownership" tab
- Click on "Take ownership" (this step is not required)

You can now add, modify and delete objects.

Best regards,

Gérard Jr.
