when you are logging in... do you mean you get kicked back to this
screen when you click on visit site?
let me see if i can follow the steps you are taking.
starting at this screen
your Blog url .com/wordpress/wp-login.php
do you have Remember Me checked?
takes you to
your blog URL .com/wordpress/wp-admin/index.php
then you have your domain name Visit Site
if you right click on visit site, look at properties
is that your Blog URL?
the visit site should be your blog url - confirm that.
sometimes i right click on visit site and open in a new
window and that works
what do you mean you have your blog marked private?
are you referring to privacy settings - you have blog visibility
radio button enabled on the I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors? are they registered users requiring username
if you have registered users, i would suggest you go into
the Users tab on the far right,
it will take you into manage users.
all users - do you see any users listed?
do you see the users that have logged in to your site
what is their role?
there is also a sentence that indicates
if users can register themselves.
my sentence says users can not
currently register themselves but i can
manually enter them.
the sentence has an active
link back to the general setting screen
where you can indicate membership
options are anyone can register
users must be registered and logged in to comment
new user default role
i think the initial posted question is answered. you got
logged in. right?
it might be better to create a new support topic for the
visit site issue or the visitor's login program
as that is not the same as the problem
you originally had. if the discussion title is defined
you might get others to help that have expertise in those
topics if you are still having trouble.
hope you get this working!
