Hello all,

(I am using the latest Magento 1.1.6)

I recently tried to change the panel that loads up when I log into the back-end.  It usually is dashboard, but I changed it to Orders.
I changed it via Configuration -> Admin.

Anyway, the second I did that, the backend suddenly lost access to what seems to be the CSS as it is just displaying plain text now, and whenever I try to get into admin now it still loads the dashboard first but with no styling, just hyperlinks and text, no graphics, no nothing.

When I try to get back into admin to change it firefox reports me this error:

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This is the address that it is providing:

http://www.<site name removed>

I have searched on Google with no luck for a cure for this problem.

If anyone could please offer a suggestion to fix this problem it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Ashley.
