Standard Dashboard looks different
For some reason my standard WordPress dashboard is different than any tutorial or forum I look at.
For instance, underneath my Home button, rather than the ‘updates’ links, my selection is ‘Comments I’ve Made’, ‘Site Stats’, ‘my blogs’, ‘blogs|follow’, and ‘Akismet Stats’.
Moreover, when I hover over the ‘Settings’ I have completely different options as well, such as ‘fight for web neutrality’, but then ‘permalinks’ is missing….
does anyone know why this is, and how can I change it?
The blog I need help with is russelphoto.com.
I think the confusion here is because there are 2 different versions of WordPress.
Your site is running on the managed environment of WordPress.com. This is us, here :) What we do, is very different from running your own WordPress installation. The installation is referred to as WordPress.org.
This page outlines those differences: https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
When looking for help, you’ll want to make sure the material is referencing the correct version of WordPress.
Here are some great tutorials to help you along:
All of the support documents for WordPress.com will be found through this page: https://en.support.wordpress.com/ Type what you are working on in to the search bar and it will spit out relevant materials.
