    I just want to re-install WordPress 3.5.1 and have the membership option/levels/pages on my webiste, and the other,the about page,as I disabled the 2.7 option by accident,or stupidity; in the settings,the page set up,blog whatever area. Where you write text etc. And lost the membership site options/levels/pages.



    You need to go to WordPress.ORG.
