Sidebar Login
Endless loop (10 posts)

    There still seems to be an endless loop with sidebar login. I've had to resort to using the old "Meta" widget for now. Too bad, I loved this plugin.

    I'm not a programmer so I'm not sure how to help other than by saying I have cleared caches on my server and computer, but this error happens from several different computers using several different browsers so I don't think it's a cache issue.

    I type in a username then password and when I hit enter (or click login) I am returned to entering a username and password. Sidebar login simply will not pass the uname and pword to wordpress or else is just stuck in a loop somewhere.

    Oh, and Yes I did resave settings and tried other suggestions in other related conversations, and this issue only began after I updated to 3.2.1 (wordpress version). I did the updates for sidebar-login, but none of the updates worked. I have not changed my site at all except for the overall wordpress update so I doubt very much that it is a css issue as suggested in one of the other conversations.

    Where are you redirecting it to in the settings?

    to: http://mysite.com/blog/wp-admin, but it just keeps going back to the front page. No Worries. I've switched over to the regular meta...

    Since your problem is solved and Mine is not I Figured I post here for a fix Hope you don't mind.
    I love the Plugin Widget. I'm having the same problem
    If I log in and hit the enter it loads the front page again and shows I'm not logged it. But if I go to another page on the site the dashboard, log out and my avatar shows.

    Here is my setup in the config:

    Logged out heading - Login
    Logged in heading - Welcome %username%
    Login redirect - http://nli.arrl.org/
    Logout redirect - http://nli.arrl.org/
    Show Register Link - Checked
    Show Lost Password Link - Checked
    Show Logged in Avatar - Checked
    Logged in links - <a href="http://nli.arrl.org/wp-admin/">Dashboard</a>|true
    <a href="http://nli.arrl.org/wp-admin/profile.php">Profile</a>

    Hi Mike,

    I've been running into this error for a bit now (I'm using WordPress 3.2.1). It's one reason by I've stayed with 2.2.15, but now it's being impacted as well. I was able to confirm that it appears to happen ONLY on the home page, which is really strange. On posts, etc. it appears to work fine.

    I would appreciate any help with this - thanks!
