I have upgraded to 2.3 and cannot login.
I am stuck with the:
ERROR; WordPress requires Cookies but your browser does not support them or they are blocked
message in the login box. I have tried:
1. Assuming it was a bad password and phpMyAdmin edited the Amin account using an MD5 generator to change my password.
3. Emptied my browsers satchel, brief case, lunch box, cache, settings
4. Tried two other browsers, also reset them
5. Tried a download of the .ZIP instead of the UX flavour-compress in case one was snapped.
6. Followed the instructions for deleting all my WP (NOT just over-writing as per the initial install), then re-uploaded all fresh shiny 2.3
8. Swearing at my keyboard
All stubbornly leave me with:
ERROR; WordPress requires Cookies but your browser does not support them or they are blocked.
This is VERY soon after 2.3 went live so I know I may not get a reply right away, but, if there is some kind soul who knows that this is, pretty plesase, can you reply?
I am 100% stuck.
PS, this support request is like this thread:
but that one says it’s not a support request, which is why I posted this.
THANK you in advance whoever you turn out to be =:-)
@hellioness – If this patch has not yet been applied to the off-the-shelf WP 2.3, then I am sure there is a good reason, but I get your point and agree, if it has not been applied, then it ought to at least be shown as needed in a way others downloading 2.3 for the first time would see and understand.
Fresh install of 2.3, in site root, but weblog is on a sub-page. Set up the weblog, added posts, and pages, and edited theme. No problem.
Browser locked up (Safari), so I started a new session, and this problem comes up. Deleting cookies and restarting doesn’t help. Tried Firefox, and the same problem.
Downloaded the patch. Works now. Whew!
Patch does not work for me
Tried with and without lines 24, 313 and 314 and didn’t work – results only in blank page
WP 2.3 installed in root on a add-on domain
It’s not work. how can I do.
None of the posted solutions work for me. Anyone have any other ideas to get around this?
None of the posted solutions work for me either.. but finally it works in my host… here is the solution…
1. connect ftp
2. goto wp-content/plugins
3. rename the akismet to something else
and have fun 🙂
wp should fix the problem in akismet. …i will dig it later… my wp is running without akismet atm.
I have the same problem using my computer at work, as do a couple of my users using there computers.
Using my system at home it is absolutely fine. These are the specs.
Windows Vista Ultimate 64BIT
Internet Explorer 7
AMD Dual Core AM2 64BIT 5600+
2048 Corsair XMS2 Dominator Memory
250GB Seagate Barracuda
XFX GeForce 8800 Ultra
Asus M2N32 WS Pro Main Board
My problem was resolved after reinstalling the wp-contact plugin and downgrading back to version 2.2
I had installed locally with 2.3, it all worked fine. I then uploaded to my remote server, changed config settings and I had this error come up, then tried the two patches for login and settings, and got blank pages, then put back the old 2.3 settings, and then put ryan’s login page in and now it works fine.
I’m new to wordpress just installed it last night… today I loaded a theme from the worpress theme website and I started having this exact same problem…. I got the patch but it didn’t work…I tried commenting out those lines and it just got a white screen instead of the error. I tried everything I could think of with no success but then i decided to delete the new theme just to see if it made a difference and my site reverted back to the default theme and the login is now working. I put the theme back out there made it my theme and it broke again… so i’m just running default theme now. I don’t know why this is connected but are the themes version specific? I noticed others on this board are still having the issue after the patch so give that a try maybe it will at least get you logged back in?
Thank you so much! commenting out those lines work for me!
Windows XP, Firefox, version 2.3
“I put the theme back out there made it my theme and it broke again… so i’m just running default theme now. I don’t know why this is connected but are the themes version specific?”
Certain themes are not compatible with version 2.3
See here for details.
P.S Does anyone know if commenting the specified lines out of the login.php will have a negative effect on anything else? Is this a temporary workaround or a permanent solution?
I noticed the same thing too and tried fixing with the patch. Apparently, I have no problem logging in using Firefox, but others do, no matter which browser they are using. I recognized the problem when I tried using IE7.
However, in my case the problem had to do with using a free .co.nr domain that cloaked my hosting domain. It seems that whenever users came to the site through the .co.nr domain name they would be unable to log in. When I tried logging in with the full hosting domain name I got a successful login!
Since many of the site’s users have grown accustomed to using the .co.nr name to get to the site I couldn’t just drop it so I logged into Freedomain.co.nr and turned off the “Cloaking” feature. Users can still get to the site using the .co.nr name but the address bar shows links relevant to the hosting domain which WordPress 2.3 no longer appears to have a problem with when it comes to cookies.
