    Thanks for jumping in. I think it is a timing issue with resolving the dns. iPage is having issues

    It seems that the problem is with ipage hosting webserver. I have been in touch with them now and they tell me that other sites on their servers are experiencing the same due to issues at their end. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/am-unable-to-log-in-to-my-site?replies=14#post-5560383

    Interesting. Let me look at those links.

    Curiously, if I click lost my password, and then login, without clicking on any of the links and actually changing my password, I have success. This has happened twice in a row now.

    Otherwise, still not able to log-in.

    Not really getting anywhere with the login issue. I am still intermittently able to login buy doing the password change hack I previously mentioned (and not clicking through to actually change the password).

    If you have any suggestions for why I still can't preview posts I am all ears!

    Thank you!

    When i visit your domain erinmidwife.com and look at your source code, all of your urls still have the fatcow username alias erinmidwifecom.fatcow.com in them, and erinmidwife.com/wp-admin is still redirecting to erinmidwifecom.fatcow.com/wp-login.php.

    I wouldn't expect that to be a normal thing. Your site addresses in the WordPress dashboard, and in your source code, should just be your domain name, not the fatcow username alias. If those are anything other than http://www.erinmidwife.com, then start with that. Make sure there's no redirect/username-alias weirdness in your .htaccess file as well.

    Solve that problem, and the other issues will probably fall in line. Maybe your hosts support staff can help you sort out what's going on with the "erinmidwifecom.fatcow.com" issue in the urls on your live site.

    Yes, thanks!

    I'm wondering if I uploaded my WordPress files into the wrong place in my Fatcow control panel. Can you tell I have no idea what I am doing? But I think you're on to it. I'm going to take a look over there and see if I can uninstall/re-install WP into the right file and avoid the redirect.

    Fatcow's site says all users get the .fatcow url. Doesn't make sense to me. No other host does it that way.

    This is from fatcow.

    The URL http://YourUsername.fatcow.com is assigned to your account when it is created.

    When you purchase or add a domain name, we add that domain to your account as a domain pointer, or alias, to direct traffic to your Website. Both your domain name (www.YourDomainName.com) and http://YourUsername.fatcow.com show the same content.

    While registering and using a domain name is optional, it provides you with a more marketable address for your site.
