Blog address (url) change eliminates edit link / ability to preview (3 posts)

    I've recently got a wordpress 2.9.2 blog up and running. I installed wordpress into a directory called blog. I then went on to customize a theme and import posts etc... Everything went really smoothly.

    Today is launch day. I switched the Blog Address URL in the general settings, to the main domain, following all the instructions (http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory) I found to copy the index.php and .htaccess files. Everything went smoothly... except that all the edit links site wide, as well as the ability to preview new posts, pages, or edits... all dissapeared. I've read several articles about the issue, so I understand that the issue is the discrepency between the WordPress URL and the Blog Address URL.

    What I can't find is a suitable fix. It's important for us to have the domain index be the frontpage... and to be able to quickly edit posts when logged in.

    Is there an easy solution I am missing here?

    I find it hard to believe no one's had this issue occur...
