Support » Fixing WordPress » Admin Menu Link Problem

  • Hi,

    In my Admin page, the link on the Tab “Dashboard” is pointing to
    instead of wp-admin/index.php.

    This is redirecting to the blank file index.php in the wp-content/plugins folder that I had placed to prevent listing the content of the plugins directory.

    What do i do to rectify this? I am on FF 2 and Win Xp if that helps.

  • Any suggestions pls?

    This problem still remains unsolved.. Do ask if you need any other details

    Could somebody atleast direct me to a place where I can get a solution? Thanks~!

    Good luck… I’m having the same problem and nobody’s come up with an answer for me either. Sigh.

    this is a searchable issue.

    as for the answer, rename the index.php that is currently inside your wp-content/plugins directory to index.html.

    I don’t know if this is the appropriate thread, but its the most active. I have some custom code that lives outside the wp-admin folder, and its linked to correctly in menu.php it spits out a page with a form on it. At the top of the page I use:
    require_once( $_SERVER[‘DOCUMENT_ROOT’] . ‘/wp-admin/admin.php’);
    $title = __(‘Edit Inns’);
    $this_file = ‘inn.php’;
    $parent_file = ‘inn.php’;
    require_once( $_SERVER[‘DOCUMENT_ROOT’] . ‘/wp-admin/admin-header.php’);
    to pull in the wordpress admin menu, but its not pulling in my plugin menu items (specifically cforms II) any suggestions?

    you refer to an index file in the plugins directory… I don’t have such a file. Neitehr index.html or index.php

    What is this?


    I had the same problem.

    There was an empty index.php file in my /wp-content/plugins/ directory and i replaced it with an empty index.html file and it’s OK now.

    I was also able to fix the problem with whooami’s solution.

    thanks, whooami. 🙂

    youre welcome, ederic 🙂

    I also lack any index plugin. I have been unable to post anything for a couple of weeks to my organization’s site. Please help!

    Every time I try to save or publish I get a blank page

    The plugins I have are below. They are all deactivated. I had not changed or updated anything when I started having issues.
    Akismet 2.0
    Hello Dolly 1.5
    wp-cache 2.0.19
    WP-FLV 0.2

    replacement of index.php in plugins folder with index.html (and deletion of index.php) worked for me as well

    @maxguncel: strange behaviour, but your tip did it! Thanks!

    I was having same problem, that was really strange, but now it worked due to trick given by whooami !!

    Is anyone having Wp-admin login problems? My login page is blank after upgrading to the newest install
