Two issues that have compiled into one problem.
I first noticed about two weeks ago that the formatting bar in wordpress had essentially disappeared from wordpress essentially making any changes needed to the site, blog, etc unavailable. (You'll see what I'm seeing now in the first screenshot).
In trying to fix it, I deleted a majority of the plugins assuming that there was a recent update that was impacting the formatting bar because of coding etc. No luck.
So, I turned to WPMU for help and in trying to install the dashboard and turn on support so you all could gain access, I am not getting the sidebar shown in on the login page (https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/wpmu-dev-dashboard-enabling-staff-login/). I've attached a screenshot to show this issue.
So there's two questions:
1) how can I fix the WPMU dashboard so I can give you access, and
2) how can I get the formatting bar back.
I've used wordpress sites for years and have built my own, but this is way beyond even my rather basic technical skills. I'm not a coder by trade, so my knowledge is very much based on the forums, etc.
