post_password_required() not working (4 posts)

    Hi all,

    I have added custom fields to the Media area of WP to add a password to an attachment (working), but when I enter the password WP is telling me that the the password is still required.

    $wp_password_required = post_password_required($post->ID);
    if($wp_password_required) :
    	echo get_the_password_form();
    else :
    	get_template_part( 'loop', 'attachment' );

    I've looked in the $_COOKIE variable, and the correct password is being assigned to the wp-postpass_#### key, but for some reason it does not like what is in there.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Just started having the same issue. The cookie is being set correctly, but the function no longer seems to recognize that the cookie is present.

    Did you find anything out about this? If not, then maybe this bump will get some answers.

    As of 3.4 "post_password_required()" no longer works for me too.

    The password form in TwentyEleven works though. I have no plugins turned on.
