I've upgraded twice from version 2.5 (I think...my original site was started in Jan of 07). I didn't notice until I installed a brand new blog that there is a dashboard on the right hand side that allows you to access all of the different parts of WordPress. Until now I've just been posting posts and didn't need to tweak the theme.
The problem now is that I have a new theme that needs some tweaking - you can see the "about this site" at http://www.webwritinginfo.com is in gibberish.
How do I get this dashboard to appear?
