  • i found the problem. it seems to be the login lockdown plugin. i disabled it, but maybe a contact to the author would be better? i had the problem. to find a problem next time, use a solution that is very similar to the problem you have. like login screens, lockdown and others can make your login screen malfunction, and when creating a user in mu (multi-user), something that is related to the database would cause it to stop working. like the plugin statpress it is not compatible with wordpress mu. it took me at least 1 hour to find out the problem.

    try deactivating or removing all the plugins one by one in these kind of cases.. it works most of the time..

    Thanks! I’m not sure I’m seeing this error anymore with Login LockDown v1.4, released this past Saturday.



    I am having the same issue. I just deactivated the plugin and still receive the same error. I am on the latest release of wordpress and any help greatly appreciated.. 🙂

    I’m also getting this message, but not using any login plugins. Have tried disabling ALL plugins (except Akismet) and still get this message.


    Strange. I had the same error, but hadn’t installed any plugins related to login.

    Since I’ve installed Login LockDown, it doesn’t show the error no more.

    Found out now that logging in and check against LDAP (with simple ldap plugin) does not work anymore. It doesn’t recognize the user (in ldap) anymore.

    Uninstalled the Login LockDown and logging in via checking against ldap works again, BUT the error is back again.

    Anyone any ideas?
