    Version 6.3.2 still does give me the too many redirect loops when I login from the /login page. Deleted all cache before I did this. In the server log 302 redirect messages trying to reach the correct page, but no success.

    Try deactivating and reactivating the plugin. Also, check your server error logs and report to me anything pertaining to TML.

    Hi Jeff,

    I am getting the same behaviour too. I tried deactivating and reactivating too, but no joy.
    I checked the logs but nothing related to TML is listed.

    I installed the update yesterday and did not have the same issue, so it could be something to do with the specific updates in today's code.

    Hope this helps as this is an awesome plugin,

    Conor

    Hi Jeff,

    Strange thing is though, that even if I downgrade to the previous versions I still get the redirect loop.

    I am sure you have better things to do with your Saturday night :), it is awesome you are even looking at this thread at this time of night.

    Cheers,

    Conor

    If somebody could give me all inclusive access (WP, phpMyAdmin, FTP) - that could help a lot.

    I'm having the same issue as WACKA1. It doesn't work to revert to an older version of the plugin. As soon as I activate the plugin I get the redirect loop and can't access any wordpress admin pages. As soon as I deactivate the plugin (need to do it through FTP by renaming/deleting the folder) the issue goes away. :(

    I solved my problem by deleting the plugin and re installing the new version. Then going into the settings and activate custom user links.

    Hope this helps others.

    In order to downgrade from 6.3, you'll need to delete the options begining with theme_my_login_ from the wp_options table.

    Deleting the plugin altogether and reinstalling from scratch (rather than upgrading) seemed to work for me as well. Now I just don't remember all of the settings I had... ah well.

    I didn't remember my settings either but it was sure better then before! Took me about 30 minutes to get everything back to normal!
    Glad it worked for you too!

    I spoke too soon. As soon as I logged out and tried to log back in I was getting page not found errors for the login pages. Just traded my redirect issue for another one. Had to deactivate the plugin again.

    Thanks for the tip, I deactivated, deleted and reinstalled; it seems to work now.

    Many thanks to everyone, especially Jeff.

    I'm getting same error when I try to access the login page:

    Error 310 (net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS): There were too many redirects.

    I'm using version 6.3.2 of Theme My Login and WP 3.5.1. The plugin interface has changed with this last upgrade, so the previous fixes listed in other threads don't seem to apply.

    I created a loop by accident - perhaps that's what others have done, too.

    I had a page called "X" and a page called "X_new". I wanted "X_new" to be the new content for X and to rename "X" to "X_old" so that all those with references to "X" would get the new content.

    In the process I tried to first rename X to "X_old", realized that I wasn't ready for that so I renamed it back to "X". Later I renamed both "X" to "X_old" and "X_new" to "X" I ended up with 4 entries in the wp_redirection_items table.

    Using pHpMyAdmin I deleted those four lines and it solved the problem.

    NOTE: I have the Redirection Plugin, but it didn't seem to be showing this particular loop.

    By the way, I also found 44,651 records in the "wp_redirection_logs" table. I assume I should be able to delete them, yes? It looks like a great many of them list Chinese IP addresses dating to about two months ago. I was the victim of a comment spam attack last week: 65,000 attempts to post comments.

    Just to follow up on my earlier comment. The Redirection plugin has a way to delete logs and/or delete them after some number of days. It appears the default is to keep the logs permanently.

    Go to Dashboard -> Tools -> Redirection -> Options

    YOURDOMAIN/wp-admin/tools.php?page=redirection.php&sub=options

    And set the Expire logs to something reasonable like 10 days.

    Jeff, I'm sure this plugin is great for some people, but it tries to do way too much for my needs. I would like a clean uninstall utility that gets rid of all those special pages, options, tables and hidden redirects.

    It has my login / logout behavior really screwed up now and I can't seem to untangle it.

    Please!?

    Thank You, Ron

    For a long time I've had redirect problems as well. Deactivating this plugin is the only solution. While I love what it tries to do, it has caused this problem for as long as I have used it and here's one other issue I've noticed. When I activate it will cause WP to also have problems with the htaccess to regular pages. The temporary fix is to go to the permalinks settings, change it to something else, save, and then go back to the original and it works again. However getting to the back end still shows redirect loop problems.

    Here is what worked for me to get things back to normal:
    - deactivate and remove the plugin (delete files)
    - delete all pages it created (approx 8-10)
    - use phpmyadmin to find and (carefully) remove all options and metadata containing '%tml%' or '%theme_my_login%'
    - visiting the permalinks admin page (and saving the changes ... not sure if that is necessary)

    - visiting the permalinks admin page (and saving the changes ... not sure if that is necessary)

    This is the only one that got my blog back up and running. Once TML was activated I would have immediate problems. resaving the permalinks solved that problem but it would reappear periodically with TML enabled.

    Ron - thanks for your comments.

    This plugin is BROKEN and now we can't login to the site! Please fix this! I can't even login to delete the plugin.

    You need make an uninstall function that completely removes this plugin. We are now spending HOURS removing it and getting back into our site. Amazing.

    Whoever downloads this plugin and needs to remove it asap: Ron mentioned some good stuff above, however.

    Ditto as sem101. Have wasted hours trying to untangle the TML from my website and still there is a problem that I can't login to my website due to "too many redirects" error loop caused by disabling TML.

    I don't seem to have a problem with the latest version.
    No infinite loops or so... everything seems to work fine...

    I have had problems with this plugin since installing it 5 days ago. An uninstall function needs to be supplied with the plugin, if it is to continue to be recommended.

    Having a major issue with the infinite loop. I have deleted the plugin and all the options in php admin. Still having the problem. Am I missing something else I need to delete?

    I also experienced the problem when moving to another domain, using WP Duplicator. It works fine on the original domain but not on the new one. Whoever, I have to mention it's working with an older version because the redirect occurred also on updating to the latest version, which makes it kind of impossible to upgrade.
