Tried to upgrade to 5.5 and now no dashboard
I am not a developer. I am just a yoga teacher/mom who is tried to do her own website. Everything was fine and in working order until I tried to install the new version. After the install, I couldn't even log in to my site. The log in page came up, but I had no edit toolbar. So, I restored back to the previous version. I have the toolbar at the top, so I can edit the site a bit, but there is no dashboard now...help! Again, I am not a programmer or developer, so please, layman's terms
Thank you in advance
Can you please make a list of packages you installed?
Do you use a customized theme? Make sure that the footer is loaded, because the toolbar is loaded by the footer in 5.5:
When I upgraded, I couldn't do anything. I could log in, but it didn't go anywhere. How do I load a footer without a dashboard?
Before you totally crash it, it would be good to let a person help you which has some more knowledge about this or wait for other users opinion here, because right now i'm not sure what you did exactly.
