GFCI Hook up

I have just remodeled my bathroom, and i installed two new outlets. I extended the old GFCI line to reach the other side of my bathroom, and I wnat that line to run two outlets, except i can not get them to work. I checked to make sure all wires were in the right spot i.e. Line and Load. I have checked to see if there is current through the line and there is so i know the extentsion is working. When i test the outlets, there is current, but when i plug anything in, it does not work. Please help! I have GFCI outlets.

How are you testing for voltage? What type of tester do you have?

Have you checked all the connection for all the wires? If the neutral is not connected you can have voltage at the receptacle, but no path for the circuit to complete itself.

I suspect, contrary to your assertion, that you have NOT wired everything properly.

Please describe your wiring IN DETAIL, and tell us HOW you tested for voltage.
