No Working Dashboard (7 posts)

    I've returned to a wordpress site that we haven't done much with since last year. Three weeks ago, I visited the site to prepare for an update and new material. The old posts were visible in the "posts" area of the dashboard. The site is: http://www.kpfamorningmix.org/

    Today, I returned to update it -- logged in and there was no sign of the dashboard contents. (I've did nothing, honest, nothing.)

    Here's what I see:
    Left Column: "Dashboard" "Profile" "Collapse Menu"
    Middle Column: The Word "Dashboard" and an empty square outlined in dotted lines.
    Right Column: WordPress Blog (with text) Other WordPress News (with text)

    The "profile" button works and I can change items in the profile. Screen Options has only 2 choices each for "show on Screen" and "screen layout"

    I've noodled around the support forum and see suggestions to reinstall wordpress and disable all plug ins. I don't know how to reinstall and might not have the codes for that. I can't find the plug ins without the dashboard.

    I'd love to have some help.

    Is this what you mean?
    http://www.kpfamorningmix.org/phpMyAdmin

    That address led to:
    Error 404: Not Found
    The information you were looking for could not be found.
    Use the search function or you might find the following articles useful:

    There's some links to individual posts and some other organizational links but nothing that says "plug ins" to me.

    Okay, I see it's something else. Frankly, I'm afraid to mess with the database directly.

    You don't have to, just read the next paragraph.

    I don't have the FPT passwords. I'll have to get with the guy who set this up originally. Do you think this is the best or only way to deal with the problem? I like to keep his work load to a bare minimum since he helps as a favor.

    I don't think getting the passwords from him is too much work.

    You also need access to your web host's control panel. You can access phpmyadmin from there. You can't troubleshoot a WordPress site properly without full access to your web host account.
