CMS Edit Link is wrong



I've created new EPiServer 7 CMS site using deployment center and logged in as an administrator. I want to go to edit mode but the corresponding link is wrong:

<a href="/sitemanagement/Cms" class="epi-navigation-global_cms_Home" tabindex="-1" aria-pressed="false">Edit</a> 

The admin mode link looks ok:

<a href="/sitemanagement/CMS/Admin/Default.aspx" class="epi-navigation-global_cms_admin " tabindex="-1" aria-pressed="false">Admin Mode</a>

So I have to manually type .../sitemanagement/cms/Edit/Default.aspx into browser address field. Is this a bug or is there a way for changing this behavior via configuration?

I am not sure what happens to your edit mode with /sitemanagement/CMS, but what I have noticed is the following:

For edit mode, I have a similar address: /secret/CMS, but when I am on a page, I am redirected to /secret/CMS/Home#context=epi.cms.contentdata:///4 (for start page, for example)

It is possible that I add edit to this address though /secret/CMS/edit. However, in that case I get the old edit mode, I think it's some kind of compatibility view.

Perhaps, the bug is that /sitemanagement/CMS doesn't give you edit mode, but the address itself doesn't seem to be wrong.

Thanks for the reply Marija. Looks like it's by design. 

I've managed to set things up for Alloy Tech test site. I still can't reach edit mode on my main solution but it's another problem.
