  • PS. I intend to use the following

    FORCE_SSL_ADMIN is for when you want to secure logins and the admin area so that both passwords and cookies are never sent in the clear. This is the most secure option.

    That’s what I use (pretty sure, haven’t looked in years…) and you can verify it is working via your SSL logs.

    I’m on a train so give this thread a read re checking.

    The POST I mention should show up on your lot as well.

    Cool thanks – I have managed to get the login to work. One last question though…

    I have set up another account that is not Admin (its a “Subscriber” role) and when this login is used I still get the Admin bar at the top of the page.

    I would like this not to display as I dont want people to be able to edit when I give them a UN / Password.

    How do I go about this?

    the Admin bar at the top of the page.

    It’s called a toolbar these days. 😉

    It’s not really something that can be removed from the admin pages but you can disable it from viewing on the front end blog pages.

    Each user can use Administration > Users > Your Profile to turn on (or off) the Toolbar on the frontend of the site.

    Or you can use a plugin to disable the toolbar from being displayed on the front end.
