WP login redirects to front of site
I notice this happens to others too, but appears to not have an absolute solution yet…I’ve experienced this once before but no follow up solution resulted, so I thought I would try once again with this new and recent instance of this ongoing problem.
In a nutshell, when I go to log into the WP Dashboard, it redirects me to the site’s front-end and not to my dashboard. I have to manually type in an admin url location to access it.
I have a fresh install of WordPress that I’ve been developing my theme with. So when this happened yet again, I did the following to troubleshoot:
- Replaced my WP files with a fresh download
- Tried two WP default themes
- Disabled plugins one-by-one
- flushed my browser’s cache and also used the default permalinks setting
Once again, it points to the bbPress plugin because when I disable it, I can log back into the dashboard just fine. However, enabling it once again, the problem comes back. And before you ask, this happens with the default WP themes too.
Long story short, I did a Google search and this happens to various people over the years, and this is the third time in 2 years for me…the 1st time I just simply dropped bbPress, then the second time, I had to do the same, now this 3rd time, I may have to.
Any ideas what could be doing this?
