I changed “Remote Login” to off the other day and was trying to get a privacy plugin working — I thought everything was fine, but then all of a sudden an “unknown error” came up for new posts / comments.
Now I can’t seem to change any settings in the backend 😐
That was a setting from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/ right?
All Remote Login SHOULD do is make your login pages for all sites redirect to your main site to do the actual login.
Try deleting your cookies and cache and going back in?
I already did that — but that doesn’t change anything.
I can’t deactivate plugins, can’t change the domain mapping settings — I have no idea what is going on! 🙁
You can deactivate plugins via FTP, by removing them from the plugins folder… I would delete the one(s) you installed for the privacy plugin?
Also, which plugin was that? It could have buggered things.
more-privacy-options — I added it to the tags
I moved it out into a non WP folder, then it said it was disabled because it didn’t exist — but it didn’t change anything about the inability to change settings.
I reinstalled it again (through the backend), hoping then I might be able to disable it, but that also didn’t work. :/
oh, I just tried to delete a plugin that was disabled (wasn’t planning to use it anymore, so it was a good test-case) — and that got deleted OK! (woohoo)
When I attempt to disable more-privacy-options, I get the message saying it was disabled — but it’s *not actually* disabled. 😐
tried disabling another active plugin (login-configurator) and it’s the same problem — it says it’s disabled, but it isn’t. Can’t change the settings in any plugins whether in the plugins directory or the domain mapping in the mu-plugins directory
just domain-mapping in there
btw: should sunrise.php have permissions set to 640 or 644?
should more-privacy-options be in the plugins directory or in the mu-plugins directory?
ACK — so is that the problem?
I installed this via the backend (which is probably why it went into the plugins folder).
So what do I do now? I’ve tried pushing more-privacy-options into mu-plugins, but that doesn’t seem to do much.
Disable *all* your plugins – everything in the plugins folder AND the mu-plugins folder.
then see if the issue goes away.
it didn’t change anything about the inability to change settings
This issue must be fixed before installing anything.
FYI, domain mapping may not be compatible with the privacy plugin, or any other plugin that modifies the original location of the the login form.
