Support » Plugin: Theme My Login » Erroneous cookie warnings if you get the password wrong

  • Resolved David Anderson


    Great plugin – thank you.

    I am developing on localhost. I have a very standard setup – a simple page that just has a [theme-my-login] tag on it.

    If I enter the wrong password, then I get two errors showing:

    ERROR: Invalid username or incorrect password.
    ERROR: Cookies are blocked or not supported by your browser. You must enable cookies to use WordPress.

    The first is relevant, but the second is bogus. Cookies are activate and working – as shown by the fact that I can login if I use the correct password. This message will confuse my users a lot if I can’t fix it.

    Version 6.3 is removing this check altogether.

    I’m having this exact problem.

    Current plugin version is 6.2.3. You say 6.3 will fix it, I’m assuming it will be released soon?

    If not, how can I manually fix it in the meantime?

    You can just remove the code that does the check. Remove lines 404-406 of theme-my-login/includes/class-theme-my-login.php.
