another login problem (4 posts)

    For months I have not been able to log into my blog. Every time I go to login it goes no where. I enter my username and password, hit login, and it just clears the username and password field. The only way that I can log into my blog is to hit the "Lost your password?" button and wait for a new password. With the new password I can login. I then go in and change password. It appears to save the new password but when I try to login it fails. It also fails if I don't change the password and try to reuse the one that WP emailed to me. I so tired of this. I've searched the archives. There are some very conplex suggested possible solutions. Unfortuately they're beyond my ability. I will gladly pay someone to resolve this issue for me.

    Thanks,

    WordPress is like more like HeadPress (like in a VICE!)

    I can almost hear Chandler Bing's voice: "can they MAKE this anymore difficult?"

    Bummer, no helpful replies. I thought I would check while I'm waiting for WP to email me yet another "new" password that will only be useful for one login.

    Anyone? Help?

    Heres a thought -- once you get that password why not take advatage of having it and update the version of WordPress that you are using.

    Why?

    Because quite honestly, since you are running a version that has exploits in the wild (code on the web that allows your blog to be hacked) for it, theres really know way of knowing WHAT your problem is.

    In other words, for all we know, someone has hacked your blog, and is having a great time resetting your password every few days.

    Support is a two way street, you need and want help, you need to also "take care" of things.
