[resolved] WP2.7 Dashboard Button Doesn't Bring Up Dashboard? (4 posts)

    I've just installed WordPress2.7 and have noticed that in the admin, the Dashboard button in the sidemenu links to admin.php?page=index.php, however this does not bring up the dashboard. It brings up a blank page. Is anyone else having this issue and is there a way to resolve it? When I load wp-admin/index.php I seem to be able to see my dashboard but this WP install is for a friend and would like to make it easy for her to get to the dashboard with the button working.

    It's caused by having an index.php in your wp-content/plugins directory. There's a bug ticket open for it so it should be dealt with in the next release. In the mean time you can remove the index.php from plugins and the issue should go away.

    This did the trick! I wanted to put the 'silence is golden' index in there, however I guess I will be unable to :'(

    I have installed the White List Domain plugin. After which, whenver i click on the dashboard button, it takes me to the White List Plugin setting's page.
