  1. I kinda locked my keys in the door last night when i was trying to edit my group settings.
    I created PROGRESSIVE HEAVEN music page. (ill refer it as PH)
    I wanted to have PH show up on my posts instead of my name.
    I took some wrong advice from someone & tried to CLOSE the group, which
    just closed it to members….no good. Then i X on my name in settings and i couldnt get back into it….
    until my wife made me admin again.
    Please help me undo these things as I need to be creator again & show PH on my posts.
    much appreciated
