Missing Dashboard Items

  • planethax

    @planethax

    All I see in my Dashboard menu is
    Updates

    Nothing else, I am sure there was more, like stats and a log etc.

    I have tried reinstalling WP, no chang.

    I have tried Deactivating Plugins, no change.
    The only plugins I have are
    NextGEN Gallery
    PixoPoint Menu Plugin
    Theme My Login

    I have gone to default theme as well to see if that would change anything but as expected it did not.

    -try adding this near the bottom of your wp-config.php;
    define(‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false);

    before this line:

    require_once

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Disable_Javascript_Concatenation

    -if that does not resolve the issue, try increasing memory available for php.

    Hmmm, tried both but no luck.

    I even reup’d \wp-admin\index.php

    Not sure what has happened here.

    – try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin? Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    -If the above step and other steps do not resolve the issue, Download WordPress again and replace your copies of everything EXCEPT the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory with fresh copies. This should replace your core files without changing your content and settings in wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory.
    Note that some uploaders may not overwrite files reliably, so delete the original files before replacing them.

    Not sure what you mean there and how to do it, but I suspect it was a bad plugin at some time, can you elaborate on how to do this?

    BTW, I just backed up my site, deleted EVERYthing but wp-config and the wp-content folder and reup’d it all with no change.
    Must have something to do with a plugin and the db

    hmmm, neither option brought back the items in dashboard menu

    To be sure we are on same page, I have some items on dashboard page like
    Right Now
    Quick Press
    Recent comments etc

    but in the Dashboard menu in left side under dashboard I only have
    Dashboard
    Updates.

    There used to be much more IIRC or am I remembering something much different?

    Something different. The Dashboard only got a sub0menu recently (3.0?). Prior to that there was just a Dashboard tab/link. 🙂
