    I just recently switched over from wordpress.com to wordpress.org and imported my blog from the previous site. It has been a few days now and I have posted a couple items, but now my dashboard is missing everything.

    I cannot add a new post or anything. It is only displaying "Profile" on my dashboard. Please help.

    Using Phpmyadmin (or another MySQL management tool), first backup your database. Then navigate to your wp_usermeta table and locate the meta_key called "wp_capabilities" for your user_id. Change the meta-value for this record to:

    a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;}

    How do I use Phpmyadmin to backup my database and where do I find it?

    Try asking your hosts for assistance with this.

    I found everything and did what you said to do. Nothing has changed though.

    Are you the only admin for your site?
