    i'll be as specific as possible, since i don't know that any of the info matters...

    this is not a new install, i upgraded to 2.6.1 a couple weeks ago i guess and have been working on my site pretty much daily since...
    i was working on it last night (using google chrome) with several tabs open, adding tags to posts... that is, i had installed a 'random post' plugin a couple days ago and had several tabs open that i'd hit the button and add tags, hit the button again and jump to another tab while it loaded... i had been doing this for a couple hours or more...

    well, suddenly when i went to a tab, there was the login screen... i went to another, same thing... i went to another where a post page was, hit edit and i got the login screen... well, my browser had the login filled in so i hit submit, but it just seemed to reload... that is, it didn't say incorrect password, yet here i was on the login page again... i did this a couple times and same results...
    it was late, i was irritated so i went to bed...
    this morning, i did the lost password via email, tried it, and still couldn't login... sometimes it says i have an incorrect password... btw, i have my blog set so people cannot join, so i can't even try to register a new account, as i have seen suggested...
    i deleted cookies and cache, same results... since i am using google chrome and it hasn't even been out 24 hours, i went and tried my usual browser, same results - i even tried from my phone, same results...

    so, i googled and can't find anyone with my exact problem and only got a couple pages into the results before i decided i'd just come here ask...

    i've been using wordpress for a couple years now, through a few versions, on the same host, and nothing like this have ever happened...

    anyone have any ideas?

    There is a new thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/201746?replies=8
    Seems there are several of us today, with the same problem.

    The same thing happened to me last night -- using newest version of WordPress, upgraded a couple of weeks ago, everything working fine, and I suddenly found myself in an endless loop of login screens. I'm using Firefox. Another WordPress user at my website is having the same problem.

    I have tried deleting cookies and clearing cache, logging in with IE, and renaming my plugin file; nothing has worked so far.

    The front page and comments work fine.

    Any suggestions?

    Same problem here... and I am supposed to be hosting a blog carnival tomorrow!! Have tried clearing cookies, upgrading, different browsers (IE, Firefox, Camino)... no matter what, I end up in the same "please log in again" loop. I, for one, will be very grateful to whoever solves this!!
