Okay my blog URL is xxx.org and my wordpress installation directory is xxx.org/wordpress
So when I go to xxx.org/wordpress/wp-admin I don't have to log in (cuz I have checked Remember Me at login) but when I go to xxx.org I don't see the "edit" links and all that show I'm logged in.
Yesterday I fixed this by clearing ALL cookies related to xxx.org and then re-logging in. However I've reinstalled wordpress since cuz it screwed up. Today this method won't work.
