I can't view / edit as administrator

Hi,
access my administrator account in Joomla 2.5, it does not allow me to view or edit the articles. I get the following message; You are not permitted to use that link to directly access that page.

The page shows the following message; You are not authorized to view this resource. It only allows me to see the photos, it does not allow me to see the menus.

I haven't used Joomla 2.5 in 9 years so memory is a little hazy.

I am not sure what the problem is - you are logged on as a super user (not simply 'administrator')?

Can you access other areas of the site like Global configuration etc. Maybe try the "fix database" or "global check in" (I'm just guessing here). Also clear your browser cache, try other browsers.

There's many references on Google to the error, I would suggest trying some of the suggested solutions. (too many to list here).

Thank you very much for the information.
The browser cache was cleaned, also "global check in" and individual "check in", clear cache and check database "Fix". still continue with the problem
