How to log into the Joomla 3 Administrator Dashboard

Logging into your Joomla 3 Dashboard

Congratulations, you have successfully logged into your Joomla 3.0 dashboard! You should now see a screen similar to the one below:

You are simply a star. I have spent last 4 days to find out a solution of this issue; however, you are then one, who have done it. Cheers!

Ah.... It's called "Control Panel"! I spent 10 minutes looking for a "dashboard" and didn't find any! Don't call it a dashboard when Joomla doesn't even call it a dashboard; that only confuses issues right off the bat!
