[resolved] Cannot login to contribute to Codex (9 posts)

    How bizarre. Here I am ready and willing to contribute to the WordPress Codex and I can't login - even though I am already logged in (otherwise I couldn't be writing this!).

  2. Can you log in to the codex?

    Go to http://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page

    Look in the right corner (where you have 'welcome' here as well).

    It may prompt you to login (sometimes cookies are dumb). Remember your User ID is Praggers, capital P :)

    I am having the same issue. I am logged in and writing here and at the codex I am asked to login again and I do with the same credentials, but login fails time and again. Why is that?

    Same exact problem. Go from this page to the codex, no longer logged in and when I attempt to login:

    Login error
    Incorrect password entered. Please try again.

    Not sure what to do about it.

    Have you tried clearing your cookies?

    Did clear cookies. Tried in Chrome and Safari on Mac and also tried on iPhone. Can login to other parts of wordpress.org but not the Codex.

    Reset my password again and it works now, disregard.

  8. Cookies have been a pill :/

    I sometimes have to compromise staying logged in to other applications when I clear my cookies, just so I can log back in to WordPress ;)
