    because i always seem to mess something up…
    upgraded from b2 to wordpress 0.72 beta 2 last night. installed in subfolder. everything seems to be working fine except for password-protected entries. the entries in question show the password field and all, but when the password is typed in, the page reloads without showing the entry text. it just shows the same field. any idea why this might be?

    Probably has to do with the cookie being set with a different path than the page that needs it.

    Or you have the wrong password.


    Valentine is running index.php outside the WP dir… (correct?) hence the hunch towards the cookie path.



    it’s definitely not the wrong password, considering how many times i’ve attempted this.
    yes, i do have the index.php file outside of the wordpress folder, so a problem with the cookie path seems likely. however, what can i do to fix it?


    Go through the cookie code and adjust the path variable… and this is probably not the last surprise you’ll have. Everything is designed to work in the supplied directory structure – you are asking for a headache by moving the index file outside the dir IMO.
