Think that's a bad fix - if you have an auto-increment id field on the users
table, then when you recreate the user he has a different id.
I expect that's why you can't edit any of your old posts.

The best fix is to use the console, find the old user
 me = User.find(1)
in my case, then reset the password with a

  me.password = me.password_confirmation = 'sekrit'

(Yes, I forget my password a lot).

If I go to /admin it'll drop me over there and I can do all of my admin-y stuff, but this functionality was there yesterday before I 'fixed' my login issue.
