Editing PHP files in WP-Admin

    I want to add a link that is visible on my Dashboard Page to a secure web page. I do not want this link on my Blog page. I have successfully edited index.php in wp-admin to show this link but when I save the file the redirect to the login page is disabled and the page is accessible by simply typing in the URL to that page at the administrator level.

    Am I not permitted to edit this file ? If I am what do I need to do to make sure the redirect to the WordPress login page is ivoked when trying to access the page.


    Sorry, you are in the wrong forum and need to head over to http://wordpress.ORG/support/ as that is where self-hosted wordpress blogs using the software from wordpress.ORG are supported.

    These forums are for those hosted here on the wordpress.COM free hosting service and things here work differently and our answers typically will not work for you.

    If you do not know the difference, see this support document: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ .



    OOPS !

    Thanks I’ll get over there and see what I can find out. I’ll stay around here and poke around too as this looks like a good spot for information too.


    You’re welcome and good luck.
