log-in problem "weird" (4 posts)

    I have been asked to be the webmaster for a WP site.
    --I was given the username and password from the owner, I cannot lo-in she can log-in
    --I asked her to make me a new user... I cannot log-in she can log-in
    In both cases the error message is that there is no such username, when asked to reset the password, the message is that there is no such email...

    I manage many WP sites... no problem, this is a first...
    any clues?
    thanks

    If that's the error message then it sounds like you have been given the wrong username. Did your client email it to you or tell you over the phone? You should double-check that you have the correct spelling.

    If you have access to the database, check in the wp_users table and see what the actual username is.

    Thank you Michael,
    No, I was given the info in writing, and we have tried it many times to no avail. I even gave the access code to a friendly third party, and he did manage to open the admin, with the same info that is not working for me.
    Question: is there anywhere in WP any module that could be blocking certain IP addresses?
    thanks,
    Peter

    Not unless there a plugin installed that could block in IP - such as Bad Behaviour.
