  • That redirect takes to login page can you login or are having problem logging in.

    Hi govpatel

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, I can successfully login after the redirect.

    The website is functioning – just redirecting. I want to eliminate redirects for SEO purposes but I don’t know where to look.

    I’ve since observed, it has something to do with the use of www. before the remainder of the url. However, I just don’t understand how or what changed or how I can fix it.


    The redirect is part of the WordPress login flow. It redirects the user to the designated URL after the user has login.

    If it is for SEO, WordPress has already inserted a meta tag for robots disallowing the indexing for the login page.

    <meta name='robots' content='noindex,nofollow' />

    You do not have to worry much since millions of site are powered by WordPress.

    Thank you for your help and sorry for my lack of knowledge on this one.

    This redirect occurs as the login screens is resolving, not after I login. I do not understand, I maintain other WP sites, none of which redirect at login. The login screen is presented at http://www.websitename.xxx/wp-admin or http://www.websitename.xxx/wp-admin.php depending on which way they’ve been setup.

    This website did the same until recently, what is different now? Why is there a redirect in the url for this site only?

    Where can I find the redirect instructions?

    This redirect occurs as the login screens is resolving, not after I login.

    And that is still the expected behaviour for http://www.digitaldoit.com/wp-login Try using http://www.digitaldoit.com/wp-login.php instead.

    I believe that is fine.. since that is the backend and wouldnt affect SEO in any way… as much as we would also not want our login page to be indexed by google for security purposes.

    The normal behaviour would be if you visit http://www.domain.com/wp-admin, it will redirect to http://www.domain.com/wp-login.php?redirect_to=xxxx. This is because to enter into the admin area, you would need to login first.

    If you visit http://www.domain.com/wp-login.php, there’s no redirection. It will redirect after login.

    I’ve checked your site and it worked normally as the above scenario.

    Would you be able to point what are the different steps in your process?

    Hi All

    Thank you all so much for your patience with my lack of knowledge.

    Ok so that’s it. I really thought I’d done something stupid that could create a bigger problem for me.

    Until now I’ve been logging in by choosing the url from the ‘most recent’ in the drop-down list in Firefox address bar. This is the one that redirected.

    Just now, I manually typed in http://www.digitaldoit.com/wp-admin and http://www.digitaldoit.com/wp-admin.php and in each instance it initally returned a ‘Not Found’.

    I repeated both URLs manually and choose the link from the drop-down list and it eventually returned the login page for the manual entry http://www.digitaldoit.com/wp-login.php

    So I guess I’ve tried to create a storm in a teacup – thank you all.

    Many thanks
