Support » Fixing WordPress » Upgraded and now I lost my Dashboard and confused two accounts

  • I’m sure it’s one stupid little thing I did on accident.

    First of all, I was happily working right along in wordpress, making changes and all kinds of updates, etc to – 3.3 This is my actual website.

    And then somehow (obviously it’s my fault) I connected it to an old blog that I had (because a video told me I should)

    So then when I log in to, and I look in the upper right hand corner user info, I get Book That Event and bookthatevents blog.

    When I click on the blog one, I get ALL kinds of options to edit my dashboard. But it’s a blog, and I didn’t do anythign with it except put my logo up (years ago)

    Then my Book That Event site (which I’ve done lots of stuff on, all the dashboard options have disappeared ???

    At first I thought maybe it’s because I combined the two “accounts” but maybe it’s because I did an update? – 3.3 (this is my blog) – no clue what version I am running!

  • Sorry – Yes I DID just remove that wordpress blog, as I definitely do NOT want that. However, that didn’t help my situation. I’m still not sure why I have such limited ability now! I host the site at GoDaddy, and I’ve even made sure that was upgraded to 3.3 as well…

    You likely did so by not properly editing wp-config.php, – site A is pointing to site B’s database?

    Double check these files.

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Hmm, how can I tell that A is point to B? And how can YOU tell ?

    I don’t know how in the world I would have done that. I am almost at the point of wanting to start alllll over!

    This doesn’t appear to be anything to do with domain names. The site has been removed and works just fine.


    Thanks – I tried doing the FTP reset. . However nothing happened. Can I just DELETE all the plugins from GoDaddy or will that royally mess it up?


    You are right the does log me in okay. And my site looks normal, but the only options on my dash board are:


    No appearance, none of my custom themes, no users, etc. . .

    No – you can delete all of the plugins without creating any problem but if you have had a particularly bad plugin, you may still need to carry out the Phpmyadmin reset.

    What is “Highlights”? That’s not part of WordPress core.

    Highlights is from a theme. It’s very weird because the entire theme was there (from

    I can’t even reset it to the word press 2010 or 2011 theme to start over. . .

    I think the Themify theme got screwed up when I updated. Should I maybe delete that theme from my FTP folder?
