    I have installed WP 2.0.2 and all seems well now, but my site admin button is not displayed. Any suggestions ?

    Add these somewhere on your theme... Where you want the links.


    <?php wp_register('',''); ?> | <?php wp_loginout(); ?>

    id is temp and password is temp. You will beprompted twice for this info. This is another problem I recently experienced with being prompted twice for the id and password.

    The double login you are referring to is not a WP login. You have password protected some directories, and either due to redirects or some other reason it's happening. You might inquire with your host about that.

    I'm seeing a login and password, along with a "remember me" check box. Also the submit button.

    I tried using temp/temp in that login area, and was redirected to http://www.clanobrien.us/blog/wp-login.php
    with an error:wrong user name.

    If you are not seeing the button, you might be in IE, and that might be the issue ala CSS or the coding.

    I am a doing a bad job of explaining this issue. When you initially go to my site http://www.clanobrien.us you are initiaaly prompted to put in the WEBSITE id and password twice. I relaize this NOT a WP issues and I am trying to resolve this issue.

    My WP issie is this. If I sign in to WP( I am an admin), the site admin button is not displayed. Why is this happening ?
    This worked previously.

    Thanks in advance.

    So if you login you are not shown a site admin link to the dashboard?

    Correct, if i login to wp the site admin link is not displayed.

    I am also noticing that if you click on a post the page that gets displayed blank. The only change I recall is someone in the forum had me change my http://www.clanobrien.us/index.php file to the below:

    <?php
    /* Short and sweet */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);
    define('WP_IN_ROOTDIR', true);
    require('./blog/wp-blog-header.php');
    ?>

    Now this is odd. I click on the Archives button and the Site Admin button appears.

    It appears once I sign into wp it is not recognizing that I am signed in, but if I clck onto another link on my sidebar then it seems to recognize that I am signed in and my site admin button appears.

    Is there any thing I should review to determine why the site admin button does not appear after the initial sign-in ? If I later click on another link within the sidebar the site admin button appears. Thus I think that for some reason after I click on the submit button it is not running the below code:

    <!-- begin sidebar -->

    <?php global $user_ID; ?>

    <div id="sidebar">

    <?php if ($user_ID) { ?>
    <h2><?php _e('User Options'); ?></h2>


    <?php } ?>

    My admin link is at

    http://mysite.com/wp-admin/

    And yours should follow a similar pattern.

    You can leave the link off your main site, and create a subdomain like... http://www.admin.yoursite.com that points to the admin page. Without the link on the main page, you'll look more professional.

    I have the link on my page, but that's to make it easy for my other blogger friend to post (but he never does).

    It's possible that you are using a template that intentionally left the link off.

    I can live without the site admin not displaying, but what about the code "Write Posts" that does not appear when my users sign-in. Does your solution above work for this ?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance ?

    Okay it now works. I changed "/" to "/blog" in the submit form and now site admin, write post, etc. appears. 2 questions though :

    1. Why does this work ? Below is the code.
    2. When someone types in http://www.clanobrien.us it will take them to http://www.clanobrien.us. Should it take them to http://www.clanobrien.us/blog ?

    <input type="hidden" name="redirect_to" value="/" /></form>

    I followed the tips found in http://codex.wordpress.org/Login_Trouble#Site_URL_Redirecting.

    My mistake was following the instuctions found in "Giving WordPress its own directory" There seems to be some type of conflict in the re-direct of forms when using this strategy.
