      Description

      The new single link to Site administration is actually the admin/search.php link, and managers cannot by default access this.

      Managers can access site admin URLs such as /admin/user.php directly, but the navigation bar is then confusing, as the Site administration link is live in Home>Site administration>Users>Accounts>Browse list of users and of course they cannot access it.
