I was installing some modules.  Suddenly, the helpful buttons across the top for admin mode disappeared.  Can anyone tell me what happened and what I have to do?

I am able to go to {website}/admin and essentially see the same buttons on the page that, I guess, I would see across the top of the page, but I wonder if I am missing out on some functionality.

But even if I still have the functionality, I still can not find the place where I can install new modules, and the system is telling me I need the "views" module to view some content I need to manage.


You maybe disabled the help module

And to be able to install new modules through your admin you need to enable Update manager

    Good tip. This was one of the issues.

I was able to fix this issue by ftp'ing some modules for the Admin Menu. The modules I had already installed expected it and, when they did not find it, the menu could not be displayed.
