Summary0019201: Admin header should link to main page of admin interface
DescriptionIt is an extremely common UI paradigm for the header image or text of a website to link back to its main page.

For instance, try clicking 'phpList Mantis' at the top left of this website. As expected, it links back to a general overview page for the bug website. Another example is in the phpList forums -- clicking the header links back to the main forums page.

On installed versions of phpList admin, the header links back to phpList.com -- which is not where the user naturally expects to end up. The user expectation is they will return to the main admin page, instead they are linked to an entirely different website. As a user myself, I have mistakenly done this *hundreds* of times, becoming an extremely irksome painpoint.

As a hopefully temporary workaround, this is what I have done on my own install:
Edit:
- "admin/ui/default/header.inc"
- "admin/ui/default/header_minified.inc"
- "admin/ui/dressprow/header.inc"
- "admin/ui/dressprow/header_minified.inc"
In each, change the phpList.com href to link to "/admin/" instead and remove the target attribute.

There may be a more elegant solution for the real fix if applied.
