It sounds like you might be have the same issues as myself ...

An earlier poster said he solved the issue by following the advice from this post:

This didn't seem to work for me but maybe it could solve your problem.

If you do get it figured out please post your solution.

That did not solve my problem either.

I have re-uploaded all files, tripple checked read/write permissions child to /blog/

recycled app pool


Please help!

I had the same problem. Is was able to add posts, pages etc, but they did not appear in my admin overviews.

Until I realized I deleted the /Templates folder (the one that contains only some .htm files). Restoring this folder to my website fixed the problem

Maybe this helps...

Did either of you ever get this issue solved?  We are running into the same situation. Our blog works fine in development and staging but no admin screens are loading in production. They are all using the same version of IIS (7.5) and .NET (4.0).  If so please post.

This is happening for me too.  Also, I can't save a new post.  I click the button, but it nothing happens.  Cancel works.

So we found the issue with this. Using IIS 7 we are also using the URL Rewrite add-in for IIS7. This apparently causes a conflict with  Once the <rewrite> tag was removed from the Web.config of BlogEngine (and its parent application - since this trickles down) the admin section was fully functional again.
