/wordpress/wp-login.php?redirect_to= itself ??? (5 posts)

    I have installed my new blog at http://alternative-me.exit-23.net -- whereas alternative-me is considered to be a subdomain of exit-23.net. I also own the domain http://alternative-me.com and I have set up a redirect on my server so that if you type in http://alternative-me.com, it goes to the new blog.

    The settings in my WP blog are:

    WordPress Address (URL): http://alternative-me.com/wordpress (this field is greyed out and uneditable)

    Blog Address (URL): http://alternative-me.com

    All of the pretty permalinks appear to be working fine except when I go to the wp-admin directory directly. When I type in http://alternative-me.com/wordpress/wp-admin/, the URL changes to one of the following and sometimes will not accept the correct login and password.



    If I click the meta WP Admin link on the home page of my blog, the url remains correct and unchanged and allows me to login with no issues.

    I do not recall WP working this way on my previous blogs using previous versions. I can't verify this as I have already upgraded my one remaining existing blog and it is also mimicking this perplexing behavior.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hmmm...This post doesn't come up in searches and it won't let me add tags. I hope no one minds the bump too much. I'm very perplexed.

    I'm also having this same problem and its interfering with one of the themes I am using. Anyone find any solutions for this?

    I experienced this problem on BlueHost after using an addon domain, the "old" hidden domain pops up in the redirect_to parameter.

    I installed WP with Simple Scripts on the final domain, and no trace of the alternate hidden domain in the options...

    I solved it by unassigning the addon domain and adding it again.

    Perhaps it would help understanding (from the WP developers) how the redirect_to field is filled up by the system...

    Check your wp-config.php file and see if the wrong URL is being defined in there. If the section in the Settings > General area is grayed out, it usually means that it is already defined in the wp-config.php
