    Sidebar is the menu that typically appears on a blog with things like links in them ?
    If you have a wp install, please link directly to that from your name please.

    Different sidebar - this is the one that's supposed to open as a Firefox sidebar, with a posting form.

    The Codex has this (bottom of the page).

    You'll find the link to it at yourdomain.com/wordpresswp-admin/profile.php - your profile in the admin interface. Doesn't work for me with Firefox, don't need it enough to work out why...

    i'd like to get it to work though, cause i don't like going to the dashboard to post.

    ok, found it in a different topic. open admin-header.php and comment out or delete
    "@header('Content-type: ' . get_option('html_type') . '; charset=' . get_option('blog_charset'));"

    Wrong link, Lorelle.
    The thread is about this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Your_Profile_SubPanel#Sidebar

  9. moshu: clicking that link sucessfully adds the bookmark in Firefox, but when clicked just displays a blank page:

    <html><body></body></html>

    Which link? The one I gave above in the Codex? Or...?

    Excellent, KrazyKid! I've commented out the line of admin-header.php that you refer to a few replies up and I can finally sample the admin sidebar in Firefox. Always wondered what was wrong with it, but never cared enough to go hunting.

    very confusing, to have an administrative interface named sidebar.php that's such a wholly different animal from the themes' sidebar.php

  12. moshu: in my own WordPress install. After I comment out the above mentioned line in admin-header.php though, it works.
