WP Forgets that I'm logged in. (10 posts)

    My installation of WordPress doesn't remember or display that I'm logged in. If I click the "Login" link when I first open my browser, it will show the login page and then take me to the Dashboard.

    But if I go back to my site, it still says "login." If I click the "login" link, it takes me right back to the Dashboard, so obviously it knows I'm logged in, but just doesn't display properly.

    Something's broken in my installation, but I don't know what. I've created a clean, separate testing install of WordPress, on the same server, including all the same plugins and posts, and the login behavior works perfectly well there.

    Update -
    I downloaded a fresh copy of WordPress and overwrote everything except the wp-content folder. Didn't fix the problem.... so my issue must be somewhere in the wp-content folder, or somewhere on my server.

    But I'm disinclined to think it's the server, since my test installation doesn't have this problem.

    Help??

    Does anybody have any idea where the problem might be? I've also tried deleting my .htaccess files... no luck there, either.

    what havent you changed?

    your theme. whats inside wp-content/

    what happens when you switch to the default theme. And since you mentioned it, make sure that you are uploading a fresh copy of the default theme.

    Its the process of elimination, aint it?

    I have switched to the default theme, and that didn't change the behavior. I'll try re-upping a new default.

    The site is located at http://www.charleslatshaw.com if anybody wants to check it out, but I think this problem won't be very obvious from looking at the site.

    And I've taken my custom theme and used it on the testing site and it works just fine there. So there's a problem with this particular installation.

    I uploaded fresh copies of the classic and default themes. If I switch my blog to them, it doesn't change the broken behavior.

    AHA!

    It's got something to do with the fact that my WordPress installation works within a folder.

    If I go to http://www.CharlesLatshaw.com , it doesn't work. But if I go directly to http://www.CharlesLatshaw.com/wordpress/ it works perfectly.

    Does anybody know how I can fix this, now that we know where the issue is?

    YAAAY!

    I've fixed it.

    For anybody who's curious, the problem was in my Options->General panel.
    The "Blog Address (URL)" was set to http://charleslatshaw.com/index.php

    I deleted the "index.php" from that line. Problem solved! Thanks to both of you who replied, with helpful ideas.
