    I just installed WordPress from Hostgator. We had uninstalled a static website and then installed WP. All seems to be working except that I can't access HOWDY at the top R of the dashboard. Wondering what I should do?

    The admin panel inside the WP dashboard where you change your password. It is not clickable. The link is called Howdy. Like Howdy Stranger.

    The only place one can change password is in profile and I do not have anything on mine.

    Is this self hosted wordpress or wordpress.com

    I meant the profile. The link for it on my wordpress.org blog says Howdy. Sorry for the confusion. It is not clickable.

    The Word "Howdy" isnt clickable... it simply welcomes you after logging in? haha.

    Tr clicking your name on the right side of the word "howdy" and it should take you to your profile.

    Failing that goto
    Users > Your Profile

    There is no admin link next to Howdy. I checked with another blog I have and that is what is supposed to be there. I'm not sure why that link is missing unless there was a problem when I installed WP. We overwrote an existing site.

    Nevermind. I went into users and filled in some stuff. Now it works. Thanks
