I have just made a fresh install of 1.1.8 and the first thing I did after installation was visit magento connect. I installed the iphone template from the core section and on returning to admin I was unable to select any menu items. All menu items appear but nothing can be selected other than logout. All this was using Firefox on Mac
So then I tried testing on IE7 with PC but the wierd thing was I couldn’t even login using IE. I then tried with Firefox on PC, I was able to log in but the same menu item problem exists here as well.
Ok I have just done a re-install so disregard this post
EDIT: ok so it has happened again, as soon as I use magento connect manager it renders all the backend menus un-selectable.
I am going around in circles here so I would appreciate any suggestions pleeeze.
EDIT#2: Edit: ok I found another thread that solved this: by changing the permission on js/index.php to 644
