URL issue/questions – Login not on custom domain name & can I map www to TLD?
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?
Thanks in advance
The blog I need help with is easyas12pc.co.uk.
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.
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.
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.
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.
