Support » Fixing WordPress » Dashboard/Dashboard Links Missing – Very Time Sensitive

  • I have not been into my Dashboard for months. Went into my wp-admin page today to access some info and there are no links under Dashboard. The only links available on that page are “Profile/Your Profile.” Can someone please tell me how I can restore and access my Dashboard? BTW, my site is still up, but is scheduled to go dark very soon. Thanks so much for your prompt feedback!!

  • Hi jordanzim,

    Do you still have FTP access to the site?

    There’s been no response from jordanzim so I don’t know if he has solved the problem on his own or not.

    For the benefit of others who may across this thread:

    1. Log in to your site via FTP
    2. Add the following to the active theme’s functions.php file ..

    $user = new WP_User('','login_name');
    $user->set_role('administrator');

    .. where login_name is the actual login name used to enter the site.

    3. Log in and make whatever adjustments you need to.
    4. Delete the code you added in Step#2
