    OK! I think it's a Firefox problem. I can log in with IE, but not with Firefox 3.0.1. Try that, Zyama.

    Great. I really dislike IE. Maybe I can roll my Firefox back to 3.0.

    hi,

    i had the same problem since i tested all the wp 2.6 betas with firefox 3.
    i searched a lot an i installed firefox again, but nothing helped me.

    the solution in my case was verry simple!

    i cleaned all cookies in firefox and then i noticed, if i go to the adminpanel with the login link in the frontend of the blog, i have no problems with login.

    i always go to the dashboard with a direct bookmark in firefox that was http://myweblog.tld and my solution was, that i write www. before it. so the link in the bookmarks in firefox was now http://www.myweblog.tld and now i have no problems anymore.

    if you look at the saved cookies in firefox, they all have www. before, and so i give a try to make the same in the bookmark link and it works.

    Both with a clean, new install, and with an upgrade: K2 theme's sidebar manager is not working. Consider it before you do an upgrade.

    There must be a problem with the new cookie system they intoduced in v2.6.
    And you seem to be unable to login if your browser still has cookies from the previous version. That's why you manage to login when you

    1. change a browser
    2. clean cookies
    3. add www. prefix if you didn't use it.

    I guess there should be 2.6.1 pretty soon ;-)

    Indeed I find a wget script i used in 2.5.1 to login to admin area first then execute directly wp-o-matic, does not work anymore.

    I do receive the cookie, yet when i load that cookie in wget to access other admin areas i get redirected to the login page.

    Update doesn't even work with me. I tried updateding 2.5.1 to 2.6, and I only got blank page, nothing happens. I had to revert all files to older 2.5.1 version.

    After the upgrade I was also unable to login with Firefox (my usual browser) but could get in fine with IE. I deleted all the WP cookies for the domain in question in Firefox and was then able to login. I wonder if the new security keys have anything to do with this?

    define('AUTH_KEY', '...');
    define('SECURE_AUTH_KEY', '...');
    define('LOGGED_IN_KEY', '...');

    I'm wondering the same thing, although I'm using the latest version of the wp-config.php file with all these set up and nothing's working for me. What a pain in the ass...

    Have tried three different browsers to FireFox, cleared all caches and still can't get logged in!

    I have the same problem. Cant log in with any browser. Apparently it was released ahead of schedule because it wasn't ready :( Like I have nothing better to do with my time then to beta test a unworking upgrade

    I am in the same boat. Blog works, password reset works, ADMIN-SSL works, I cannot login. It takes the password but then drops me back to the login screen. :(

    CLEAR YOUR BROWSER COOKIES.

    This is the first step. It will likely fix any cookie related issues you may be having.

    Yes, cookie handling changed in 2.6. The "Please log in again." message is it telling you that your cookies are expired and it's trying to reset them. But, if that is not working for whatever reason, then you will get the message repeatedly.

    Clearing your cookies and logging in to your CORRECT site (www vs. non-www, for example) will probably fix the issue.

    I am wondering if the ADMIN-SSL plugin is killing things as well. I have cleared cookies and verified the site name and still have no luck.

    Any plugin that screws with the SSL may be broken as of 2.6, which now supports SSL in the admin section natively.

    Remove the plugin. You can force admin SSL in 2.6 by adding this code to the wp-config.php:
    define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);

    You can also force SSL for the login with this:
    define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true);

    Otto42, it's not just cookies either.
    It's a real problem within the 2.6 changes.

    @_ck_: Unless you can tell me where this "real problem" is, then I'm really not interested in speculation.

    The truth of the matter is that people with unusual setups will have issues with some of these changes. The problem is not with the changes, the problem is with the setups. Some setups may need to be altered slightly. Especially with people using older methods like the "admin ssl" thing.
