I have installed Civicrm 5.4 on a new Wordpress installation, I ran through the setup with one issue of a dashboard contact ID and have gone through the Configuration Checklist, but after that my Civicrm Menu never shows.
I went through the fixes online and implemented everything from making sure the resource urls are correct everywhere, resetting the menu through another plugin, clearing the menu in the DB, changing settings in the civicrm.settings.php file but with no success.
I have manually added an entry in the dashboards table so I can atleast see the Resources on the front dashboard but I am unable to move it next to the News.
I am running wordpress 4.9.8 and php version 5.6.5 on a company server.
Please let me know if there is more information I can give and thank you in advance.
