The sub-panels isn't showing up on my dashboard (5 posts)

    I upgraded from WordPress 2.3 to 2.5.1 but I couldn't locate the sub-panels on my dashboard. Below the title of my blog is just a "dashboard" text written and below that the "Write a new page/post" buttons on red background but no sub-panels at all. Is it like that with WordPress 2.5.1?

    WordPress Screenshots shows you what the panels/sub-panels look like...

    I'd say you didn't get all the WordPress files uploaded. Redo Steps 7 and 8 as detailed in Upgrading WordPress Extended. Recommend using FileZilla for this (see Uploading WordPress to a remote host).

    I repeated steps 7 and 8 as you said but it didn't work. Using my ftp, I uploaded all the files in the WordPress 2.5.1 folder except the license.txt and readme.html files. During upload, sometimes my ftp software would ask me if I would overwrite the files with the newer one and I chose "overwrite all if newer". After the upload completed, I went to upgrade.php on my site and clicked "continue" to finish the upgrade. I logged in to my dashboard, but it still looked the same just as how it was before I repeated the upgrade.

    Here's a screenshot of my dashboard:

    You are using FileZilla? If not using Filezilla make sure you are uploading in ASCII mode.

    Also overwrite the files (regardless of date/time).

    I also have no subpanels. I am using FileZilla to upload. Any more ideas? I am stuck since I can't do anything without the subpanels.

    Also, here is a screen shot of mine:
