Default to edit.php instead of post.php (6 posts)

    When messing around with a beta version of 1.2 a few days ago I'm sure I saw an option to change the default page in the admin interface to edit.php instead of post.php. I've just upgraded my main blog to 1.2 Mingus and can't find it anywhere. Of course now I look back at the beta it's not in there either so I must have imagined it.
    I have seen something posted in here ages ago saying this feature would exist though and it's one I would really like. When I've finished posting or editing posts in my blog I want to be sent to the edit page rather than the post page. It just makes sense, I edit posts much more often than I post them. I remember others wanting it at the time so I'm sure I'm not alone.
    I have no idea how to put this functionality in though, dont' even know where to start. And I would prefer it to either be put into wordpress proper (as I thought it was going to be) or (more likely) made into a plugin so that it's not lost when I upgrade. Can someone help me with this?

    You can modify wp-admin/index.php and replace post.php with edit.php.

    In Mingus is there a way to change the page that loads immediately after an entry is posted? Currently it takes you to a blank post page -- is it possible to change it so that it takes you to, say, the entry that was just posted, or edit.php?

    I get the same error. I turn off my firewall and then I can "save and continue editing".

    This is great, thank you! Now when I press "Publish" I am taken to edit.php. Is there a way that I can be taken to edit.php after pressing "Save" also, as in when editing a current post, but not wishing to continue editing that post?

    Since I'm the only one that uses this computer and I don't blog from anywhere else I'm always logged in already. So I just bookmarked both post.php and edit.php and go to whichever I want from there.
    mumeimagpie is right in that I was looking to change the page I refresh to after preforming an action, sorry if I didn't make that clear. It's navigation within the interface that's a problem, not where I start. I'm going to go change the location thing now since that sounds like what I want, although I too would like the edit.php page to be the one I refresh to after anything, editing a post as well as making a new one. Thanks :D
    Also, is there any way I can do this without having to hack files? Because right now my change will be lost after the next upgrade. And I do like to upgrade :D
