I just installed Thingspeak on Ubuntu. I created the admin account, and can log in as the admin, but I can't create more users on the admin pages. The New User form shows me an email address field and a login, but no matter what I put in the fields, the error message is "Password can't be blank." There is no password field on the form.

I can sign up on the front page, so I am not without ways of creating users. It just seems odd that I can't do it from the admin pages.

We don't have the ability to create users manually using the admin interface on, so it is not present in the open source version. However, you can easily modify your code to allow this by modifying the line at and adding the password field. You'll also have to add the permitted parameters at .
