    Hey guys, Im using the Weaver theme and all is good until I forwarded my domain to the new site I built. Now my login and register will not work. If I go to the Masked Forward ( http://www.glamistrips.com ) The login shows an error "Word press Cannot display in frame" But when i go to the site direct ( http://www.17bcars.com/glamis ) and click login it works perfectly. Any ideas how i can fix this? Im fairly new to wordpress but not to Websdesign by no means. Thanks in advance for all your help. - JT

    P.S. i already posted on the Weaver website but they checked it and said its a WP issue not Theme issue.

    Hey there,

    What happens if you login at http://www.17bcars.com/glamis and go to the Settings -> General and change "WordPress address" and "Site address" to http://www.glamistrips.com/

    That might fix it for you. I suspect what's happening is when you try to login, WordPress redirects you.

    Please backup your database before making this change though. If it doesn't work, you may not be able to login from either location

    I hope that helps!

    :O Did you backup your database? You will need to either restore it, or go into phpMyAdmin and adjust two values.

    home and siteurl in the wp_options table need to be changed back to the base URL used for your WordPress installation ( in your case, "http://www.17bcars.com/glamis" ).

    Ok now i have the site back but none of my pages etc are working. Im sure a few more options need to be reconfigured but i have no idea where to start. Any suggestions? - JT

    Resetting those options back should be it, but I would recommend re-saving the Settings -> General page with those values to make sure.

    You could try re-saving your permalinks? That sounds like a permalink issue to me.

    Awesome ok thank you so much that is all fixed now. But back to the original question. Can i have a masked forwarded domain for my wordpress? And also why wont it let me login from the forwarded domain? Any other ideas how to get that up and running? - JT

    In my experience, WordPress doesn't like you logging in from a domain other than the one specified in those fields under Settings -> General. It will try to redirect and possibly just fail to log you in.

    If my original suggestion doesn't work, perhaps someone else can help. Sorry!

    Do not use masked forwarding with WordPress. It can create all kinds of problems.
