WordPress keeps logging me out! (31 posts)

    I've been having a serious issue with WordPress for weeks. I can never stay logged in. No matter what browser I use, I can never stay logged into wordpress' admin panel. I'll spend 10 - 15 minutes writing a post and hit "publish" or "save" and then bam, it takes me back to the login page and I lose everything and have to start over if wordpress hasn't automatically created a draft. This happens randomly but it occurs multiple times during a span of one day. I find myself retyping my password at least a couple of times per hour. It's pretty annoying.

    I've cleared my cache, cookies, everything. Didn't work.

    I uninstalled firefox, rebooted my comp and reinstalled firefox. Didn't work.

    I even created a new profile and basically started my firefox from scratch. Didn't work.

    So I used Safari to see if it was a firefox issue. Didn't work.

    What the heck is going on and can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    Are you using any plugins that redirect the user to the login page? I was using the "Registered Users Only" plugin on one site and it was causing the same problem. After I removed the plugin, the problem went away.

    No I'm not using any type of user plugins. In fact, user registration is completely locked on my blog. The only people who have registered accounts are me and my writers.

    But thanks anyway!

    FYI, you can have user registration blocked and still want to use a plugin that redirects users. I was using it for a private organization that has about 50 users but wants to keep the public from seeing the site, so a login is required before anybody can see anything. Anybody who is not logged in gets redirected to the login screen.

    Has this always been happening or did it start happening after making a code mod or installing a plugin?

    I have the same problem.

    I am always logged in to my blog on two computers, one using Firefox and the other using Opera.

    First, Firefox kept logging me out, so I cleaned the Firefox cache and cookies and everything. It seemed to have solve the problem.

    But now, Opera is constantly logging me out. I login, view the dashboard, and try to go to another page, and I'm suddenly logged out again.

    Very frustrating. Please help.

    I did reinstall wordpress and it's still there, I have one wordpress instalation with that problem and a second one without problems.
    It logs me out every some minutes, even when I'm working, sometimes I'm writing a post and when I click publish it ask me to login and what I wrote is lost. It normally saves but not if it logs me out soon. A little warining appears in the bottom of the write area that tells me I'm logged out and can't save the draft, most of the times I don't notice it.

    I recently upgraded to 2.8.4 and since then I have noticed that it's been asking me to log in (logging me out) often. I have it set to remember the password so I'm not sure why this is happening. It's happening to all my writers.

    I still can't find what is the cause of the problem, but it's still happening.
    I have 2.8.6 installed but I think it's happening since 2.8.4

    Currently my blog updated up to latest 2.9 version.
    There is the same issue:

    • When I'm loggin in on the main page, I'm redirecting to '/wp-login.php'. I'm entering valid aministrator username & password. The system permit me to log into. But if I'm simultaneously opening the main page I see myself logged out. When I'm going again to '/wp-login.php', the system remember my username but not a password, then I need to pass an authentication procedure from beginning.
    • Browser cookies are on. All historical data was cleared many times recently.
    • Issue is browser independent, experienced in Firefox 3.5.6, IE8, Maxthon 2.5.10, Google Chrome 3.0

    I have this problem too, at least since 2.7.
    First I tought it was the Search Unleashed plugin, but after removing it the problem persists.

    I'm having the same problem with 2.9 and it's exTREMEly annoying. I spent about 2 hours just trying to make a post.

    I had a similar problem after installing the wp-postratings plugin on WP 2.9.1.

    I change the "Ratings Logging Method" top IP only instead of IP and cookies, and it solved the problem.

    Don't know if it could help, but in my case, it had something to do with cookies.

    Version 2.9.1 and still happening.
    I have had many different problems, including being logged out while posting and being logged in in the dashboard but logged out in the page at the same time.

    I've never had this problem with any version or WP starting back before 2.0 and I'm pretty sure it is not a very common problem or there would be a lot more complaints on the forum so I have to think it is something peculiar about your setups-- maybe a particularly strict server level session timeout for example, or possibly overloaded servers. Unfortunately, hardly anyone in this thread has provided any useful information. Feeling around the web blindly though I found curiously similar problem with sites GoDaddy servers.

    I'm having the same problem.

    Do any of you run the RPX plugin, which allows people to login w/ facebook or twitter credentials? I am, and I thought maybe it had to do with that?

    Here is a list of the plugins I am using. Anybody see any similarities with their setups?

    I am having the same issue, I searched around and found a site that said to disable any custom 404 forwarding which seems to have stopped the logging out but now I can't use the custom 404 page when we have a whole new layout and many links are broken

    Does anyone know how to add an exception for whatever page the admin menu is trying to save / forward to that seems to be hitting the 404 page?

    If you have this issue, check that you don't have any extra trailing slashes added to your URL's. E.g. like in http://www.mysite.com//wp-admin/post.php%3Faction%3Dedit%26post%3D779%26message%3D10 after mysite.com

    I have this issue on 2.9.2 and it's driving me insane. It seems like I get logged out after viewing a few pages in the admin. Happened in 2.9.1 before I upgraded too.

    Same problem with 2.9.2

    I too am having this.
    Two seperate WP installs hosted on the same machine, (eg sharing PHP, mysql, network route, etc are identical between the two.) same wordpress version (2.9.2), pretty much the same plugins, same theme.

    One keeps me logged in the whole time.
    The other drops my login anytime I visit the main page space.
    - If I stay within the admin screens I will remain logged in, but any attempt to view a post or page (including the main page) outside the admin console logs me out. This issue suddenly started sometime in the last two weeks.

    Disabling all plugins does not resolve this. Cleaning the browser cache has no effect. Nothing appears in the server logs. It's very confusing.
    Edit1; It is browser independent; identical behaviour on both Firefox/Fedora12 and IE8/WindozeXP.
    Edit2; Server is a FreeBSD 7.3 box with PHP 5.2.12.

    I just started having the exact same problesm a couple days ago.. sometimes it even tells my admin user it does not have permission to make changes.

    The only thing I can think that changed for me was it was right after I installed google connect but I am not sure..

    it is VERY annoying. but at least I feel better that it is not just me

    Does anyone have a fix or know what it could be?

    Me too. It was working fine at 2 am this this morning, then I go to log in this afternoon and I can't do anything, I just keep getting redirected back to the log-in page.... I am not happy, I have been a WP user for all of a week and I seem to be spending more time on the forums searching for answers to fix bugs than I am actually creating my site.

    Bring back Blogger, all is forgiven !!
