I just updated 2 sites to WordPress 3.2--both identical themes/plugins. On the first site, everything went smoothly.
On the second site, I've lost the entire left handed column with Dashboard, Posts, Media, Links, pages, comments.
It's just gone. I've tried restoring a backup which didn't help using Backup DB which didn't help.
I also tried to reinstall wordpress using the reinstall button.
Note, the only way that I could do the above functions was by copying and pasting links from my other wordpress blog.
How can I fix this problem?
