  • You’re site is also asking me to type in a password once I visited it. (I had to click cancel 3 times in order to get through to your blog). Do you have a password script or plug-in installed somewhere? Have you tried clearing your cache, and visiting your site yourself? I’m sure you’ll be able to reproduce your user’s problems. You might have enabled some security settings if your host has that cpanel options (e.g. Password protecting directories etc..) Also double check your .htaccess file settings.

    HI I’m having the same problem here, when accessing from internet, users were asked to login first, the page is still displayable but with no theme activated. I’m hosting my own webserver and have xampp lite and wordporess installed. During the initial installation, i used “local host” as the add for both wordpress URL and Blog URL, then i changed the root direcory to where i host my own homepage, say: homepage/, and move wordpress under homepage/ everything was wking fine on the local host. However internet user can’t access wordpress due to the local host add i specified in the wordpress. I changed the blog url to “” and wordpress to “x.x.x.x/wordpress” due to the fact that my webhost is behind a router/firewall.

    I will check if my host got password script or plug-in installed, but can anybody tell me where I have done wrong to not have my wordpress displayed properly from the internet?

    PS. I’ve tried “” from the other laptop in the same private LAN of my web host, the laptop can display the theme properly but will request for the login.

    Thanks for your help in advance


    Thanks Vietknight I’ll look at those things when I get home from school.

    Oh, I have no plug ins and I didn’t put a script up unless it came with the installs godaddy did for me.

    THANK YOU! It took me three hours of looking but I found an .htaccess in the theme that was causing the issue. Deleted it and no problem now. 🙂
