    On multisite your username and password are the same for ALL sites. Log in with the super-admin username and password.

    If you’re running BuddyPress, it will redirect you to logging in on the home page.

    thanks for the reply,no I am not using buddypress,
    I am sorry for typo mistake.
    what i was trying to say is..when i am trying to open this link
    instead of opening the page with login form it is redirecting me to the main site home page,
    Secondly.when ever logged in with subsite username and password in the subsite admin panel link.
    it opens the profile page instead of dashboard.

    When i logged in using superadmin then it opens the dashboard.

    The only time I’ve seen a user login kick you to the profile was when I use the WP Hide Dashboard plugin which … does that. And I love it 🙂

    There is no ‘subsite’ username/password, unless you made individual admin accounts for each subsite, which you don’t have to do.

    Every account is sitewide, and the Super Admin account (i.e. the administrator account for the site that has access to all the network settings) can access the backend of every single site.

    Flush all your browser cookies and cache. Login to with your SUPER Admin account. See what happens.

    hello Ipstenu
    you are correct I am using WP Hide Dashboard plugin.
    is there a way where an user of sitewide goes to dashboard of his particular subsite when he logged in .
    i have flush cache but no use.

    When you turn off WP Hide Dashboard, do users go to their site’s dash or to the main site’s dash?

    Is the use an ADMIN of the sub-site or just a member?

    Problem No 1.
    When I turn off the WP Hide Dashboard, then the below link starts working
    and i need to use this link for login
    when i activate WP Hide Dashboard then the below link stops working
    and it redirect me to the main site front end that is

    Problem number 2.
    When a subsite admin logged in to the system it opens the profile page for him that is
    then he needs to click on MY SITE under Dashboard and then from the site listing has to to click on dashboard to go to a subsite

    As per my knowledge.when a admin of a subsite logged in he should be provided with dashboard.

    thanks for taking out time to help me.

    I’m suggesting you do this to test and figure out where things are going wrong.

    The plugin WP Hide Dashboard happens to work by hiding links for Subscribers. When people login at they are logging in on the MAIN site. On that site, your sub-site admins are, logically, subscribers. If they logged in at http://mysiteurl/subsite1/wp-login.php then they SHOULD go to http://mysiteurl/subsite1/wp-admin however…

    I use that plugin and wp-admin is still available. For everyone. There’s really no harm letting people login via wp-admin. All that generally happens is you get this URL:

    Which says ‘After logging in at, we’ll kick you to wp-admin.’ If I login as a regular subscriber via wp-admin, it sends me to my profile.

    You’re going to have to do some testing. Turn plugins on and off. Turn customizations on and off. Figure out WHAT exactly is causing redirects and what isn’t. IIRC your site has a metric ton of weird customization and command duplication to fit your needs. You can’t reasonably expect all plugins to work correctly when you do that. In fact, I’m pretty comfortable suggesting that you’ve got a conflict in one of your other plugins/customizations.

    i have done the testing as you have suggest.
    when I have disabled WP Hide Dashboard then everything works fine even the link
    starts working
    but when I enable WP Hide Dashboard and I try to open
    it redirect me to the main site link
    and when I try to open
    then also it redirect me to

    thanks for taking out time for my issue.

    Right. It’s something on YOUR site conflicting with WP Hide Dashboard.

    You’re going to need to do this debugging on your own. You do it by turning off ALL your plugins EXCEPT WP Hide Dashboard, and then turning them back on, one at a time.

    And if that doesn’t work, you undo ANY customization you’ve done (use the Twenty Ten theme) and try it on a clean site.

    Basically, it’s just you, man. Good luck.
