Links issue in Sharepoint

I have what appears as though it may be two separate problems but it may not be so I'm posting them both here.

One issue I am having is with the links list on our Sharepoint homepage. The link to Links List marked 1 does not work at all.

The other issue is not being able to access the content area for the Links List.

If I click on 'View All Site Content' then the link for Links there takes me to the Links List settings page and not the content page. In fact every link I have been able to find functional for Links List only takes me to the settings page. Therefore I cannot manage the content in the Links List. This was discovered due to a need to delete a few of the links in the Links List.

Dis you try clicking on the links list from the breadcrum, while on the settings page?
Also, from the settings page, try to make a view as the default view. It could be that your default view was accidentally deleted.
