Wordfence Security
[resolved] Other Admins cannot get to Login page diverted to homepage (3 posts)

    We have WordFence plugin installed, it's an excellent plugin, by the way. However, we have a slight issue we need help / advice with.

    Basically, the main Administrator for our wordpress site can log into our wordpress admin, without any problem. However, when we try to get another administrator to log into our wordpress site from another computer they cannot get to the login page, they are diverted to the homepage automatically?

    We have checked all our WordFence plugin settings etc... and just cannot pinpoint the issue. It is great for security, but we really need to adjust something so another administrator to log in, from their computer. We have made sure their IP is not blocked, and we have tried adding their IP to 'having no restriction', but they just cannot view our log-in page and still keep being redirected to our homepage.

    We have even tried getting to the wordpress log via the link (below) on other computers to see if the log in page shows up, but every time it just diverts to the homepage, too. Do you know how we can tweak WordFence to resolve this for our other admin.

    WordPress Log In.


    Maybe you will spot what the issue could be.

    I don't think this is a Wordfence problem because Wordfence has no feature that redirects people away from the login page.

    Have you tried disabling Wordfence? If you do, does the problem still exist?

    When I hit those URL's I'm automatically redirected to your home page too.

    Hey Mark,

    Thanks for getting back to us about this issue. We will do as you suggested, appreciate you pointing us in the right direction. We will look at other plugins, or redirects. If we find a solution, we will let you know - just in case someone else has a similar issue and may think its Wordfence security.


    p.s Such a brilliant plugin by the way!
