Create link to profile in template (1 post)

    I have been trying to create a direct link to the user profile page ie:

    <a href="/wp-admin/profile.php" title="Edit Profile">Edit Profile</a>

    This works fine with an admin account - goes straight to the profile page - however, with a lower level user it always goes to the dashboard and NOT to the profile page.

    I'm guessing the problem is with authentication, but as I said it works with the top level admin account.

    I have tried:
    - the full URL
    - generating the site root

    Anyone got any ideas - this ones got me tearing my hair out (this is on an Mu site, but shouldn't make any difference if at top level URL, which is were the link appears)
