Support » Fixing WordPress » Login links not going to login page

  • Resolved moonshdw8


    In my main menu I created a Custom menu item going to “/login/”.
    Whenever I click on it, I get redirected to the home page with the url “”.

    So it appears to be trying to automatically log me in, failing because the fields are empty, and then redirecting to the home page.

    I simply want the link to take me to the login page.

    If I copy and paste the link, it works fine.

    (using IIS 8.5, all version and plugins up to date. Multi-site installation. Child theme)

    Things I’ve tried:
    – changing the link to “/wp-admin”, “/wp-login.php”, tried the full url and relative url. all had the same result.
    – disabled all plugins
    – changed themes
    – added a menu link using code via functions.php. same result

    Just to make sure this wasn’t something relegated solely to the menu, I created a simple hyperlink on a page to go to the login page, and it too failed.

    Fixed this if anyone else has the same problem. It was a plugin called “Sidebar Login Widget”.
    Even if the plugin was de-activated, it was automatically redirecting url references to the login page, back to the home page. Deleted the plugin and all was well.
