Exclamation Suddenly can't ssh with created user

Linux server, 12.04 LTS
I followed this guide:
Works great for my sftp user, the user can't access via ssh and only to his directory. However, the user I made when I first installed my server suddenly can't ssh in via PuTTy: it gives an error like " the software caused the..." (I can't remember the rest of the error.) So I made a new user with a home directory and can login just with this new user via ssh and sftp just fine, although all that is displayed for this new user is a $ sign instead of "user@(ip address)", like when I could login via ssh with my first account before the guide. Someone please help?
