Bug: When using hidden login url, won't allow due to cookies, but second time ok

    Turn off the cookie based brute force feature and enable the “rename login page” feature. This 2nd feature should work better with your server while proving a good protection against brute force login attacks.

    I did turn that off, and had the Rename feature on. But it has that problem, saying the browser must allow cookies, when it already does. As I said, trying it again, it worked.

    What is the exact wording of the browser cookie error message you are seeing?

    Which type of browser are you using?

    Does this happen with other browser types?

    The message appears on top of the WP login box, and says: ERROR: Cookies are blocked or not supported by your browser. You must enable cookies to use WordPress.

    I’m using Firefox. I tried it with Chrome, did exactly the same thing.

    After changing to login using the hidden login url name, now I can’t login?
    http://www.podpitching.com/myloginonly/
    the page is redirected and I get this:
    The requested URL “http://www.podpitching.com/” cannot be found or is not available. Please check the spelling or try again later.

    What’s the best way to recover from this and change the default login back to wp-login.php is it thru phpMyAdmin?
    Thanks for the help.

    @oneboots,
    Do the following:
    – Using FTP rename the AIOWPS plugin’s folder to a different name temporarily (eg, add a prefix or suffix to the current name)

    – After doing this log into your site’s wp admin panel using the standard wp-login.php URL .

    – Stay logged in to WP, and then using your FTP session rename this plugin’s folder back to its original name.

    – then from the wp admin panel, activate the AIOWPS plugin again and turn rename login page feature off.

    That worked!
    Thanks wpsolutions

    Hello, I also have same problem, and here are what I found:

    – The cookie error won’t happen if you ever logged in to the website
    – The error will only happen if you empty your browser cache and 1st time login to the website
    – Tested on SeaMonkey, Firefox, and Opera. All give the same result

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks for the details Handoko – these will be useful when we are trying to troubleshoot this.

    Handoko’s experience is somewhat different than mine. For example, he says

    The cookie error won’t happen if you ever logged in to the website

    I have logged in to the site many times, and it still happens nearly every time I come back to log in again.

    Also, I don’t empty the cache first.

    I have the same issue, regardless out how many times I have logged in.

    I have deleted all files related to AIOS and did a fresh install, still had the same issue.

    Hi all,
    I’m not able to reproduce this and hence now I’m not so sure that the issue lies with AIOWPS.

    For instance, have you googled this issue to see other occurrences?

    Eg, look at this one and try some of the suggestions to see if they work for you:
