Need to request for password reset before password is accepted during log in (3 posts)

    Strange. For the past 2 days, this has been happening: each time I log in at wp-admin page, the login page wiggles and says my password is incorrect. But I know that's the right password. It just won't accept it even when i repeated several times. However, when I clicked "Forgot Password", the screen asks for username or email address to email me a link to reset password. After this click, I didn't bother to open my email to reset password. I simply retype my username and password to log in. This time I log in successfully (without changing my password). This has become a pattern. These past two days, I had to click "forgot password" in order to be able to log in successfully. I remember that problem started after installing the plugin captcha. But I am not sure if it is the cause, or just coincidence. Can someone help?

    You possibly have "hit the nail on the head" Can you clear cache, Temporarily disable plugins Then try login, If it works enable each one at a time.
    Good Luck

    Thanks! I temporarily disabled captcha, logged out, cleared cache, restarted browser, and successfully logged in the first try. I reactivated it, logged out, cleared cache again and restarted browser. And I logged in successfully the first try too. Now it is ok. For both browsers (Firefox and Chrome). Thanks a lot!
