Why am I asked to authenticate twice with admin login? (3 posts)

    Is this by design? A quirk with my installation? Or something to do with my host?

    After I initially log in as admin, I am taken again directly to the wp-login page as soon as I click on any link, such as "Write" or "Manage".

    Why the second request to authenticate?

    I've tried changing cookie settings, but no luck.

    Not a huge problem, but it's getting annoying.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    That happened to me too. For me it was because in the wp-admin/options-general page I had my site address as something like:

    http:// site.com

    Changing it to:

    http:// www .site.com

    fixed it.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but no luck.

    I already have the syntax you suggested in Options >> General
