Good evening all!
Firstly, I'd like to apologise if this question has already been asked, however, I couldn't find anything. Secondly, I'd like to say that I am new to Magento so, if I'm being stupid, please let me know!
Anyway.....In the 'Manage Categories' area of Magento I had previously assumed that clicking on a pre-existing category would load the category data into the form on the right for editing. However, I have two installs (one live, one local) that have exactly the same issue - the data is never shown - it merely reloads the 'New Root Category' page.
So, I looked at the ajax call that is being made when I click on the category and this does indeed return the 'New Root Category' HTML. The URL looks a little odd though?
(I am using admin rewrites if you're wondering where index.php has gone.)

Thank you in advance for all your help.
