    I had accidentally deleted the dashboard.php file without realizing it. I actually have a different issue altogether which I will create a separate topic for. Sorry for such a silly mistake on my part! I’m still learning.

    Stay positive and stay safe! Truthfulness, compassion, and patience will get us through these difficult times!
