URL issue/questions - Login not on custom domain name & can I map www to TLD?

  1. I have just upgraded to have my own domain used as the primary domain for my WordPress.com site. I have added the domain and updated the DNS details to allow mail to go to the previous server. I can access the wordpress site using the address shown above but I appear to be always logged out. As you can understand this causes the site visitors number to bump up each time. When I click log in I am redirected to http://easyas12pc.wordpress.com/wp-login.php and I can then log in as normal. however when I do all the admin screens begin http://easyas12pc.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    My first question therefore is how to I update/change the login screen, and subsequent Admin screens, to be just http://easyas12pc.co.uk?

    The second question is can I map or otherwise http://www.easyas12pc.co.uk to http://easyas12pc.co.uk using the wordpress.com dns settings screen.

    Thanks in advance
    William

    The blog I need help with is easyas12pc.co.uk.

  2. You cannot change the admin screens, but the login screen should work at http://easyas12pc.co.uk/wp-admin

    http://www.easyas12pc.co.uk/ will always reroute to http://easyas12pc.co.uk/ on a WordPress.com setup.

  3. Thanks for the reply raincoaster.

    My issue is not that the admins screens do not work on http://easyas12pc.co.uk/wp-admin but that they only work on http://easyas12pc.co.uk/wp-admin.
    If I go to http://easyas12pc.co.uk/ I am not logged in even after clicking log in. This causes the visitor count to increase every time I access the site using http://easyas12pc.co.uk/ to view posts etc.

    Currently http://www.easyas12pc.co.uk/ does not reroute to http://easyas12pc.co.uk/ it is still going to the previous location. I would like for the rerouting to happen as you describe.

  4. You may have to set up a redirect on the www address at your domain registrar. I've seen this sort of thing happen with some domain registrars, while with others WWW redirect are seamless and automatic.

  5. I followed the instructions for assigning the domain but I'll try what you said thesacredpath.

    Being unable to be logged into the bare domain is the more pressing issue as I said the counter increases every time I visit.

  6. The www issue has now been resolved it was a local DNS issue.

    I still have the issue that I cannot log into http://easyas12pc.co.uk only http://easyas12pc.wordpress.com

  7. I still have the issue that I cannot log into http://easyas12pc.co.uk only http://easyas12pc.wordpress.com. This is not useful as I cannot check that a post is showing properly without increasing the views. At present every time I land on http://easyas12pc.co.uk I am increasing the views counter which I obviously do not want to do as then I have no idea of the actual number of visitors I have that day.

    Any help or clarification on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

  8. If you log in at http://easyas12pc.wordpress.com/ then go to http://easyas12pc.co.uk/ your page views will not be counted -

    I have a mapped domain name and I am never counted as long as I log in to the base account first - I just double checked it on my site and still works that way for me

  9. Thanks for the reply auxclass, I really wish this was the case however I can log into http://easyas12pc.wordpress.com/wp-login.php as many times as I want however I am never logged in at http://easyas12pc.co.uk.

  10. I can even click the logo in the top left of the Dashboard, which is on http://easyas12pc.wordpress.com/wp-admin/, but I am not logged in at http://easyas12pc.co.uk.

  11. You will never be logged into http://easyas12pc.co.uk/ where you see that in your dashboard -

    Your dashboard will always show http://easyas12pc.wordpress.com/wp-admin/ - your dashboard is always the base URL of the WordPress.COM that your domain name is mapped to

  12. Currently anytime I go to http://easyas12pc.co.uk the visitor count is increasing by one. This happens each and every time. If I was so inclined I could force my page views. It even registers the referrer as WordPress Dashboard.
