Just need confirmation, is this the default behaviour of WP 2.2 (7 posts)

    Hi,

    I need a quick confirmation on whether my installation of WP 2.2 is correct. I installed WP 2.2 and whenever I log into my admin,

    1)I dont see the dashboard area, but instead I see the front end.

    2) The wysiwyg shows a longer bar than previous versions

    3) I cannot edit or delete the first post - "the Hello World" post.

    Is there something wrong with my installation, or just the behaviour of WP 2.2?

    Like you see your index.php page? no thats not right, and has come up before here recently.

    I cannot edit or delete the first post - "the Hello World" post.

    Noope! Not normal. Can you create, edit, and delete other posts?

    Thanks.

    I just installed WP 2.2 for the first time using fantastico on a new domain.

    If those are not normal problems, should I delete and reinstall again or is this fantastico's problem?

    Thanks for prompt reply!

    I havent tried to post a test post, but I knew I could edit the first post on previous WP versions...

    And for the dashboard not appearing, is there a solution for it currently?

    Thanks

    I would start by downloading a fresh zip of wordpress 2.2, unpacking the zip, and manually uploading all the files,
    making sure to completely replace all the files installed by fantastico. Minus your wp-config.php -- leave that file intact and unchanged.

    If that doesnt fix it, then come back, and ill help go through the threads I saw this mentioned in.

    I find the Hello World post cant be deleted but not only that, a test post I just made also cannot be deleted. And to get to the dashboard area, I need to log in and click on the Admin login link in the front page.

    Can someone clarify if these are the main problems with WP 2.2?

    Thanks much.

    Drats, its not good.

    I have downloaded the WordPress 2.2 zip file from here and then uploaded them to my server but the problem still remains.

    I overwrote all files except for the fantastico related files and the wp-config files and of course the database.

    But I still cannot delete the posts, and the dashboard is still showing the front end the first time I log in.

    Anyone knows why these problems are occuring?... :((
