  • Anonymous

    I just upgraded my wordpress version, and when I try to log on via the admin module (wp-admin) in Opera 9.5 and 9.51, it reacts as if I have typed the wrong password.

    This was not a problem prior to the upgrade, and I can log on via IE, but I don’t LIKE IE, and would really like to see it work in Opera again. Anything I can do or do I have to report this as a bug?

    I second that!

    Just upgraded a couple of hours ago and had to use sucky-sucky Internet Explorer since.

    Even after deleting all my Opera cookies I still get a Please log in again. message, even though I did not type the wrong password or anything of that sorts.

    I have another WordPress installation on the same server, and since I did not upgrade it yet (still v2.5.1) – I can log in and do everything like before.

    Matt, what gives?
    Opera fans are people too


    This kinda pissed me off, and I wrote a blogpost about it. Someone gave me a tip that there are changes that needs to be made in the wp-config.php file.

    So I checked the wp-config-sample.php file that was a part of the upgrade. I manually edited my old wp-config.php file to match the sample-file. No luck. The only change I could see was the fact that all the norwegian letters had gone sailing in la-la-land.

    So I changed a few more things. Removed spaces between the code that was not there in the old wp-config.php file and I commented out two lines

    //define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    //define('DB_COLLATE', '');

    Saved the file, emptied my opera cache.. and what do you know, now I can log into my blog via opera again.

    What does the 2 lines that I have commented out do? Do I need them? Is there any sane reason why they would mess with the logon in opera?

    I’ll just leave them like this until I see a reason to put them back in

    Opera 9.5.1 definitely works with WP 2.6, without any need to play with the config.

    The two lines you commented out are to do with database settings are should have no bearing whatsoever on the ability to log in. Changing the collation and character set affects what sort of things get stored in the database, which would affect, for example, your Norwegian characters.

    I expect your new-found ability to log in is more to do with having cleared out the browser cache than changing unrelated config entries.

    I cleaned out my cache using CCleaner which apparently was not good enough. When I manually deleted my cookies, it was all back to normal – except for my hatred for MSIE which is much bigger now.
