  • Me too! This is not a clearly defined option.

    “Remote Login” can be disabled. Useful if you’re hosting totally separate websites.

    Just based on that, I’d hazard to guess “remote login” means logging into is also OK via If this setting isn’t ticked, then this is not OK.

    Remote login just redirects to

    Does “remote login disabled” disable the redirect or disable the WordPress admin at the primary domain address? When you talk about redirect, do you mean than the login view is redirected befor the user enters anything or that the actual login form points to a different domain than where the subsite was?

    None of your explanations are ever remotely accurate yet.

    Also, when I test at my WP Network having this option on or off, it does not seem to have any effect. Users of sites always end up at no matter it they log in from or So I’m really keen to know what it is supposed to do so that I can debug it.

    What I’ve seen in sites that use this: remote login allows to have users logged in on mapped domains. While the login occurs at, the users are shown as logged in in, the mapped domain, and the comment forms show their registered name and url.
    If you look at the code it’s simply a cookie exchange between the subdomain and the mapped domain via a javascript-injected page reload.
