after a successful installation of CiviCRM 4.7.19 on WordPress 4.7.4 – the installer said everything was fine –, the menu and dashboard of CiviCRM does not show.
I know, this issue has been addressed elsewhere, but the solutions proposed there didn't work for me.
For instance, in the following case: Civi dashboard and menus won't display after install the solution seemed to be to replace the CiviCRM Resource URL which was set to default. However, the solution does not say, how to find and access this Resource URLs settings page where this default would have to be changed.
In another solution Word Press Install Missing civicrm.settings.php; dashboard unavailable; no menus it was suggested to install a certain plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/civicrm-admin-utilities/ , which unfortunately also did not help me.
I've also looked into similar cases on Drupal, like this one: Civicrm menu is hidden There someone suggested to rebuild the menu via adding /civicrm/menu/rebuild to my page, but it only gave me an error saying I'm not permitted to access that page.
I'd be glad to hear some of your ideas on this issue.
Thanks and best regards! Jannis
