This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Editing the Site Welcome Message
We upgraded from 5.8 to 5.9.7 and were really looking forward to the new Dashboard design. I reset the Welcome Message template to default, but the overall page still doesn't look anything like the image that Atlassian advertised with the 5.9 release notes:
Instead, it looks like this:
The first time you viewed the dashboard you would have been presented with an option to switch back to the old dashboard. There was also a link in the bottom of the new sidebar to switch back. Chances are you've clicked one of these links.
You can get the new dashboard back by removing a dark feature in your site. See the 'recommended solution' section of this KB article How to reenable the new dashboard in Confluence 5.9
