    I have an account with Buddypress.
    I want to post a forum question ..for which I need to log into buddy press.
    When I click to login and enter my user id and password it takes me to wordpress login screen. I enter my credentials and the irritating box dances saying wrong password.

    I have reset my password multiple times now with no avail.

    Is there a way I can log into buddypress.

    Please advice.

    Same is the case with bbpress..

    If i click the login on top ..it does not recognize my user id password.
    And If I click register, it sends me to wordpress
    and wordpress says you are already logged in , why do you want to register

    Some other people have reported the same issue - I'll see if I can drum up someone to help you with it.

    Thanks a lot for looking into my issue

  5. You mean logging in to buddypress.org and bbPress.org?

    Yes ... Right now I am logged into WordPress.
    In the bottom of this page, in the footer is Buddypress Social Layer and bbpress forums hyperlink.

    If I click any of those links, I would expect to enter into those websites without the need to log in.
    but thats not what happens.
    If I press the link, Buddypress does not recognize me and says Anonymous on the top.

    If I try to then sign in, it throws out a WordPress login box, which dances saying wrong password and I have to change my password and the loop continues and I end up back into wordpress.org

  7. Delete all your cookies for wordpress.org, buddypress.org and bbpress.org - then try again.

  8. Hi there linknp,

    It's hard to say if your password is the problem, since you've changed it from BuddyPress.org a few times. (I get emails when it happens.)

    Can you try:

    • Change your password here at WordPress.org
    • Clear your cookies for BuddyPress.org and bbPress.org
    • Try logging to either bbPress.org or BuddyPress.org from /login

    This probably isn't what you want to hear, but I've successfully logged in from several accounts, several major browsers, with varying roles at both sites. I know several people are having issues, and I'd like to figure them out ASAP.

    Let me know how the above steps go for you.

    Sorry that I have to restart this issue. But it still continues to be as is.

    @linkinp Sorry to learn that you're still experiencing the same issue. Just to be clear, since you mentioned you could not log into BuddyPress above, does this mean you can log into bbPress.org now?

    linkinp is listed as user/Participant with no impediments as far as I can see in the BuddyPress.org Admin panel. Do you still have the same gmail address?

    Isn't this wonderful. I can log in to BuddyPress now with my same WordPress password. I have been trying to do this for a looong time and with no success. But last night I cleared all my cache as always and tried. It did not work. I was able to login to WordPress but not BuddyPress. So finally I gave up. And this morning, some how using the same WordPress password worked on Buddypress too.

    I am afraid to change my password now in WordPress or Buddypress now. so will not do that till I am fairly comfortable.

    Thank you all for all your awesome work and time dedication in this issue, in this community, in this plugin and in giving the world such a wonderful addition.
