I suppose isomeobe forgot to make the manage called from write:link
pointing to manage:links, this should be correct for consistency in
the interface.

Actually after some use i don't dislike the new interface, ven the
write sreen, the only things i would like to have option and advanced
option for writing pages and post puttend in a tab we wil have a tab
for write, with the editor and another tab with option and advanced
option to avoid the need to scroll back and forth or forgetting to set
something important, maybe the title box onli coul d be tabbe so for a
post we have a tab title/tag/category etc... that sound not so bad for
interface, a post has a title, categories, tags... 

Another addition is to not count for default category during posting
post but if a post has no categories neither tags when u push publish
sould appear a warning, same for tamplate and mothers for pages.
