Login Issues (7 posts)

    I have had this login issue forever. After entering the correct user/pass nothing happens. I just get the login screen.

    The quick fix is to change the password in MySQL but that fix is only temporary. Is this ever going to be considered a bug and fixed?

    New features are nice, but useless if the login issue isn't fixed. I am a web dev so please don't ask me to clear my cookies. I have cleared cookies, cache, used new browsers on new computers etc.

    I have looked around forums and lots of other people have been having this issue. It's a real problem.

    The first step is to clear out any cookies from your browser that relate to your site.

    It's a pre-conditioned response because people don't actually do it.

    If it's not giving you an error message, then it is most likely cookie related. Have you got these defines in your wp-config (with some values)

    define('AUTH_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('SECURE_AUTH_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('LOGGED_IN_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('NONCE_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');

    Just "secret key" and I hadn't removed the default value. I just changed it. What do the others do?

    I changed my "secret key" but it didn't work. I'm adding the rest.

    What is my users table supposed to look like? I just have one record in there and it's for "admin".

    OK, I read about this issue all over the place. People just keep reseting their passwords all the time?
