I need to generate in one of my custom module a link to a category edit page in the backend. So I generate the url like this:
$url = Mage::helper('adminhtml')->getUrl('adminhtml/catalog_category/index', array('id'=>$category->getId()));
or like this:
$url = Mage::helper('adminhtml')->getUrl('adminhtml/catalog_category/edit', array('id'=>$category->getId()));
I get a correct url in both cases:
ROOT/admin/catalog_category/index/id/10/key/<security-key-here>/ //and ROOT/admin/catalog_category/edit/id/10/key/<security-key-here>/
But when the page loads, for a split second I see in the edit form the data for my category or the category I previously edited and then there is an ajax call that clears my form and I'm on add mode. ('New Root Category'). The
<title> tag of the page contains the correct category name. On the left side tree, the correct category is selected.
The ajax call that clears the form is made to
So there is no id parameter in the ajax call. I guess that's the problem.
How can I make this work?
This seams like a bug to me. I stand corrected. Based on David's answer this seams like a feature.
