    And now I can't login into my wordpress site AT ALL!!

    If you have POP-UP DOMINATOR as a plugin on your blog - Deactivate and DELETE completely off your blog. This is the culprit that caused the biggest problem to entering the wp-admin. Sometimes deactivating is not enough, therefore you must delete the file completely.

    Once the above is done... try to enter wp-admin - you should be good to go!

    If you updated and still have the problem above, then those files may still be resident in your wordpress platform. If this is you; then you must open your cPanel or FTP client and locate this file, "general-template.php" at ...
    /home/yourusername/public_html/wp-includes/general-template.php and locate these 2 strings below.

    > if ( is_rtl() )

    > echo apply_filters( 'wp_admin_css', "<link rel='stylesheet' href='" . esc_url( wp_admin_css_uri( "$file-rtl" ) ) . "' type='text/css' />\n", "$file-rtl" );

    change the above to...

    < #if ( is_rtl() )
    < #echo apply_filters( 'wp_admin_css', "<link rel='stylesheet' href='" . esc_url( wp_admin_css_uri( "$file-rtl" ) ) . "' type='text/css' />\n", "$file-rtl" );

    notice the < #

    the above will comment out the string command so you may enter your admin.

    Another issue was between the Visual & Html editor on your TINYMCE. If you cannot see the Visual editor, it means that you must deactivate all your plugins and activate them back on 1 at a time until you find the next problematic plugin.

    Good luck!

    Since you cannot enter wp-admin, go to cPanel or use FTP (easier and faster), locate popup-dominator or domination in your wp-content/plugins folder and delete. next go to wp-admin login page.

    You should be good to go!

    Hi lonniea

    Thanks a lot, I just had exactly the same problem, and I found your post here, the answer you have given nailed it, and sorted me straight away.

    One quick question, is it advisable to re-install pop up domination after again after.
