[resolved] Login to Plugin Directory? (9 posts)

    I've developed a WordPress plugin that I'm interested in submitting for inclusion in the plugin directory. I believe I've found a problem with the site.. steps to replicate, being:

    1.) I've attempted to sign-in at the URL that all of the login boxes in the plugin section seem post to, being: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bb-login.php, using this username (qwidjib0)

    2.) A message is returned: "This username does not exist. Register it?"

    3.) I click the "Register it?" link

    4.) I'm directed to /support/register.php - and given the message "You’re already logged in, why do you need to register?"

    5.) Repeat process, loose some sanity

    It would appear that the plugin section is looking at a different table to user data than the one that the 'register an account' link is associated with? The registration did work in creating this account (obviously, as I'm posting here using it), I just can't access the plugin section. Any help would be much appreciated.

  2. You should be able to login using the same user ID and password as you use here.

    Try this.

    1) Log out of the forums
    2) delete your cookies
    3) Log back in to the forums
    4) Log into the plugins

    If that doesn't work, we'll try something else :)

    Thanks for the reply. Doesn't appear to be cookies.. I tried it just now on an entirely different computer to be sure (and logging in to the forums, then the plugin section).. same result.

  4. Try the other way? Plugins then forums?

    Just tried... same: "This username does not exist."

  6. I've dropped a note with the other forum mods. Maybe someone can remember what my brain has lost...

  7. Try logging in there now. :)
