    Dashboard Only Has 3 Items ( Content , Media , Formulate )

    I just got my website from my previous marketing agency. When they turned it over, I got an email and password to log in. And when I log in I can see 3 items in the dashboard which are "content', "media", and "formulate".

    My problem is that I don't know how to edit my website's design, layout, fix missing links, etc, given the options I have.

    I already tried, but there is not much I can do to customize my website.

    Can you please tell us if the account you are logging in into umbraco back office is an Administrator account ?

    if not , they (the ones who made the account for you)should give you the permissions for all sections.

    if you are an actual administrator give your self the permissions you need

    Thanks Ibrahim. That does makes sense. So I probably don't have admin rights by the looks of it. I'll request for admin and hopefully get what I need from there.

    Hi Israel

    Your login User, will have been given permissions over which sections it is allowed to access.

    If you request access to the 'Settings' section, then you will see all the templates and partial views used to implement the site.

    If nobody can grant you this permission, and you have access to the database, then you can insert your user id into a User group that does (umbracoUser2UserGroup)...

    regards

    Marc

    Exactly, I was looking for that "settings" section. As I was watching tutorials on using umbraco on youtube, I noticed that I don't have any of the items they have on their dashboard so I couldn't follow along. I went ahead and asked permission for that item. Thanks Marc!
