    Can anyone help me?
    I am a total beginner using a free Rich Jerk website. while logged on my dashboard I chose an alternate theme to the one I was given. (as my training video suggested) When I returned to the site, I found that the login field was now missing from the 'Meta' section of my side bar. I now can't get back to my dashboard !
    I was told nothing would change EXCEPT the theme ...What did I do wrong and what should I do?

    Go to your site, type "wp-login.php" after your site name and folder (do not replace any of the other stuff) in the command line of your browser (where the URL is displayed) - that should give you your log-in screen. You want to run the "wp-login.php" from the directory your blog is installed in.

    You did not do anything "wrong" - some Themes have the log-in link in the meta section others don't -

    if you like your new Theme and want log-in link on the front page of your site - go to "Appearance - Widgets" and drag and drop the Widget with the log-in option to the Sidebar.

    This helped. But there is no widget to drag or sidebar to drag to?
