How to change path for log-in and log out.links
A newbe to WordPress and bbPress so please forgive me (and advise) if this post is in the wrong place.
I’m working with my client’s existing website at http://nmhunts.com I’m attempting to create a Forum in which his clients will be able to discuss their hunting experiences. My intent is to create the forum in a subdirectory and link to it from the main website.
I installed WordPress in folder /wordpress. I installed bbPress. I had to change my Site Address (URL) in General Settings to http://nmhunts.com (from http://nmhunts.com/wordpress) so I could get my log in and log out buttons to work properly. (Without this change, the links would add an extra /wordpress to the url yielding something like http://nmhunts.com/wordpress/wordpress/wp-login.php . . .)
Now my links to my Registration and Lost Password pages don’t work. The path does not include the /wordpress that it needs. i.e. the buttons are looking for the Registration page at http://nmhunts.com/?page_id=8 instead of http://nmhunts.com/wordpress/?page_id=8.
Ideally, I would like to get the login and logout links to quit adding the extra “/wordpress” to the path.
I tried messing around with permalinks and slugs to change the path of these pages but WP apparently won’t allow the forward slash (/) after the
As stated earlier, I am a newbe and I’m hoping that it is my unfamiliarity with WP and bbPress that is preventig me from finding the easy solution. Your help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
