Nav links from Admin dashboard redirect to home admin (4 posts)

    I'm having trouble with my admin dashboard after upgrading to 2.5.

    I can get to the admin page and login just fine. I can click on items like Write and Manage and get those pages just fine.

    BUT, if I want to navigate deeper (say try to go back to earlier posts to edit) then the navigation redirects back to the main admin page.

    I can manually insert "edit.php" into the returned link, though, and use that as a workaround.

    Any clues how this happened / how to fix. It's rather inconvenient!

    Okay, this happened because I tried to fix something in wp-settings.php that was preventing the site from showing up in IE7 (on an install hosted on a server with IIS).

    The fix allows the blog to show in IE7 but breaks the admin links. I give up!

    What exactly did you try to fix here? What do you think is preventing it from working?
