Issues going to Dashboard in Confluence 5.1

I found in the documentation that to go to dashboard we need to click on the space icon, but instead is redirected to the assigned home page, which is ok. But I am not able to go from the home page to dashboard.

Am I missing something here? Is there a parameter/configuration that needs to be changed?

I found the way of solving this issue. With previous version I have confluence directing to a Site Home Page but I also had the option to go to the dashboard from the top menu bar.

With Confluence 5.1 it looks like we only go to the dashboard by clicking on the logo, but actually is not going to the dashboard it is going to page indicated on General Configuration Site Homepage.

so in order to accomplish both actions I had to add a new icon on my home page that allows me to go to Dasboard (just a workaround)

Hi Fabian,

Great! we appreciate your efforts on this matter, thanks for the workaround.

Here is the description https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Page+in+View+Mode

the logo indicates that goes to the Site's Dashboard, it is actually going to Site Home page from General Configuration
