Administration Setting Panel - Missing Subpanels (5 posts)

    I am a long time WP user, using the most current version 2.8.1

    When I mouse over Settings, I show a list of subpanels. Missing from the list are subpanels for the weblog, e.g., writing, discussion, miscellaneous, etc.

    If I click on the Settings icon, then I get General Settings. I still lack access to the weblog's other standard subpanels.

    Could a plugin, or the number of plugins that I use that offer control, have corrupted the appearance of my Settings panel?

    I can access all the subpanels on Settings with v2.8.1
    BUT, in Reading, I don't see the feature to set the static front page. :(
    Luckly I know how to change stuff just by exploring the db, but I don't know what the option is not in the Settings > Reading dashboard.

    Any luck with this JC?

    My settings administration panel is missing altogether and I need to change the URL for the media library uploads.

    Been looking for an answer to this for hours...I am using WPMU, but I stumbled across a fix:

    You have to modify
    /wordpress/wp-admin/menu.php

    modify
    $submenu['options-general.php'][45] = array(__('Security'), 'manage_options', 'options-security.php');

    to
    $submenu['options-general.php'][50] = array(__('Security'), 'manage_options', 'options-security.php');

    I did this and it worked, I now have the Miscellaneous tab in my settings menu.... now I just need to figure out why the Miscellaneous Settings Page is completely blank.
