No Dashboard Menus, Revisited (3 posts)

    I have the same problem as AdrialHY with my site.

    After I login through http://perichoresis.me/wp-admin, insert username & password, I will straight away go to "profile". There are only 2 buttons on the left side of my dashboard 1. Dashboard 2. Profile. If I click on the "dashboard" button, I will only see WordPress Blog & Other WordPress News. When I click on the "Screen option" button, there's only 2 options under the show on screen: wordpress blog & other wordpress news.

    I have checked my phpMyAdmin as suggested by govpatel.

    You need to go in phpmyadmin and click on your database
    look for wp_users and click on browse 1st icon
    you will see list of user if you have more then one
    check if your ID is one
    if is one then click on wp_usermeta
    and check if you have this in table 14 wp_capabilities


    I have two user logins because I have two sites. The site I am trying to resolve is user ID 2.

    When I click on wp_usermeta and look at row 14 it reads as above, i.e.

    But, as I said, the ID is 2 for the user_login on this site.

    Please help.

    Basically, the problem you are experiencing is due to the fact that the account in question does not have admin privileges.
    You mentioned you have 2 accounts, and that the issue occurs with only one of them. If that's the case, sign in with the other account (which should have admin privileges) go to Users, and make give the conflicting account admin privileges as well.
    Hope this helps.

    Wow, thanks a bunch!

    It seems you are absolutely right on. I have two WP blogs. Each with a different user_login and corresponding password. I signed in with user_login ID #1 and the password for the perichoresis.me site. Voila! The complete dashboard is visible. Many thanks to you for your help.

    If I may ask a few basic questions:

    I am logged into _wrdp1 via phpMyAdmin. There are two users visible.

    1st Question: Should I delete the second user_login?

    2nd Question: Can I or should I have the same password for _wrdp1 and _wrdp2?
