Support » Fixing WordPress » I keep getting logged out!

  • Resolved ItsStrangelyMe



    I have a blog via (self hosted), and everything is functioning well until I click on my blog (top left corner) to either view it or preview it etc. Even if I open a new tab to view my blog, I automatically get logged out of wordpress completely. I normally edit whatever it is I’m editing, view my blog to see the changes, click ‘back’ to go to my dashboard and continue. However, for some reason I keep getting logged out and it’s quite annoying having to log back in every time I edit + view my blog.

    Any suggestions on what I should do? My blog URL is

    Thank you,

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Hi Esmi,

    Thank you for all the suggestions.
    I deactivated every plugin and re-activated them one by one like you said.
    It turns out that it’s because of the Google Friend Connect widget. Is there anything I can do about it? I would really like to keep this plugin if possible!



    Are you using the latest version; do the developers of that widget know of your problem?

    Hi Chris,

    I’m using the latest version of both wordpress and google friend connect.
    And no, I don’t believe they do. But I’ve looked at many forums and it appears that many people have similar issues so I’m assuming the must know.

    Never mind, problem is resolved!
    My rookie mistake, thank you for all the help.

    Solution: I went to settings and unchecked the ‘Allow only Friend Connect users’ options.

    And for those who can’t get the widget to show up (mine used to be completely blank), this is what I added above the generated code provided by google friend connect:

    window.JSON = {
    JSON.parse = JSON.decode;
    return st.evalJSON();
    JSON.stringify = JSON.encode;
    return Object.toJSON(obj);


    Worked like a charm!

    It’s always in the options 😀

    Good work!
