hello fellow forumee's
not sure if my problem is the same but maybe, the following is a chat with BLUE HOST which will hopefully explain my situation...
Mark: [11:54:38 AM] Welcome to Support. Please be aware that I have multiple chat windows open at once and my responses may be delayed. How can I help you today?
dr steve: [11:54:38 AM] I go to the "front end" of my website now and can't get to the "back end" in the usual way because the "log in" button is missing...I need to get to my back end and make some corrections....help
Mark: [11:55:17 AM] I went to http://www.drwhodo4u.com/wp-login.php and I see the login option just fine
dr steve: [11:56:13 AM] ok , let me try that
Mark: [11:56:18 AM] ok
[12:00:16 PM] Anything else I can assist you with today?
dr steve: [12:01:38 PM] please wait...it says it did match any documents...try again
Mark: [12:01:47 PM] ok
dr steve: [12:03:58 PM] first I typed it in, then I copied a pasted what you put here...I still get no match of documents
Mark: [12:04:31 PM] so, are you trying to log into wordpress or are you not getting the website to load?
dr steve: [12:05:26 PM] I'm trying to get to the back end of my already "semi" functioning website
Mark: [12:06:35 PM] That doesn't answer my question. Does the login page load? Are you just having problems with the correct username / password to sign in with?
dr steve: [12:08:50 PM] as far as I can tell, there is no problem with any unames or pw....I'm trying to get to the place where I can post another blog and make some corrections , like correct a malfunctioning link
[12:12:38 PM] no, I'm not able to get to the log in page
Mark: [12:12:53 PM] http://www.drwhodo4u.com/wp-admin should be the place you can log in
dr steve: [12:14:01 PM] let me try it again
Mark: [12:14:41 PM] ok
dr steve: [12:17:41 PM] i put that in google chrome and I get thru to the 'front end'...so i see what visitors see...but there's no button for..."log in"...like I remember
Mark: [12:23:30 PM] That is something to do with the Theme and setup you have. that's not something we can fix for you
dr steve: [12:25:35 PM] I haven't changed the theme or set up since the last time I was in....that doesn't make any sense ....then who can help me if you can't !!!!
Mark: [12:26:24 PM] You would need to go to the WordPress.org forums and see if someone has information there or if the theme author has any documentation on setting up the login option on the home page
dr steve: [12:26:50 PM] ok, thank you
Again I hope that explains it...this has been very frustrating..If I reload the wordpress program I'll need to save my posts somewhere, right...?..thx loliJ...doc
