1.All is well using localhost/website.
2.All is well (after some setup) using 192.168.0.101/website
JetPak plugins won’t work because jetpak cannot connect.
To make #2 work I had to change “siteurl” and “blogurl” from
localhost to 192.168.0.101.
If I now go to Plugins>Jetpak it says “Click on the connect button to finish activating” I do-did that:-). and it says it cannot connect.
If I change the url settings back to localhost I can connect just fine from my computer and another computer in the house BUT then my pages don’t display correctly from the “other” computer. so I do need to use the ip method. My roommate and I share development of sites and need to see each other websites that we are building.
I am sure the Code gods at WordPress can find a simple solution.
(I find sucking up really helps 🙂
