Activating theme (5 posts)

    In my dashboard there is no "Appearance" tab nor a "Tools" tab.

    Since that is the case, how do I activate a theme?

    Yes. I am login as an admin. I use the "admin login" every time I want to see or use the dashboard. On the dashboard there is a "Presentation" tab, which in all the help documents I found none of them talk about the presentation tab. I did a normal installation using the WordPress link from my servers cpanel.

    What version of WordPress did it install? I remember WordPress used to have a presentation tab, but that was several years ago...

    For reference, the latest WordPress admin area should look like this:

    I would suspect a plugin that is no longer compatible (or conflicts with your theme or other plugins), try deactivating ALL of them, check site (note: clear your browser cache frequently during this process), activate one at a time until you find the issue is recurring. Could also be the theme, try switching to the default theme.

    Also of note: WP3+ requires PHP5.
