[resolved] Subdirectory Login Path Issue (6 posts)

    When this plugin is activated on a WP install that is in a subdirectory (like /wordpress), you cannot get to the login screen by going to http://site-name.com/wp-admin, but rather you have to go to http://site-name.com/wordpress/wp-admin.

    This isn't an issue for me, but it is confusing to tell my clients that for now, your login URL is http://site-name.com/wordpress/wp-admin, but then after we launch you can shorten it to http://site-name.com/wp-admin.

    I sometimes provide a link on the coming soon page to make it easy, but then my documentation & examples I provide to clients isn't consistent or reusable. It would just be much easier if /wp-admin would just redirect as it should.

    Let me know if you need any more info. Thanks!

    This usually a sign of a misconfigured site. I've seen others with this issue in the past and it's usually turns out they have missed a step here.

    Make sure your site and home url are the same also. Sometimes people put one with a www and the other without that can cause an issue.

    I'm fairly certain I haven't misconfigured anything. I've noticed this on quite a few websites over the last year or so, some were installed manually and some installed via Fantastico, but this issue occurs regardless. I double checked the steps you provided; nothing there was new information to me.

    Let me know if you have any thoughts, questions for me, or are able to reproduce this. Thanks!

    hum, strange I'll look into it. The plugin only runs on the front end and not the admin. I'll set a test enviroment to confirm! Thanks for the heads up!

    I just installed Ultimate Coming Soon and have the same problem with logging in. If I try to login at the WordPress Address http://www.sitename.com/foldernamd/wp-admin it works, but if I use the Site Address http://www.sitename.com/wp-admin it does not work.

    This is because it's in a sub folder. Review these instructions for this setup.
