[closed] WordPress cookie corrupts site (2 posts)

    I'm writing as a user of a WordPress site who has encountered an error
    that I've narrowed down to a WordPress.com cookie. The site is
    http://nordicxplained.wordpress.com/. Under the Media tab there's a
    drop down menu. In Opera, currently 12.12, a WordPress cookie is
    causing the drop down menu to start two lines down, which makes the menu unusable.

    To find why this was occurring, I did a clean install of Opera and then
    added the previous user files one by one. The problem appeared when I added the former cookies file. First, I eliminated all the NordicExplained cookies, which didn't solve it. Then I eliminated all the wordpress.com cookies and the drop down returned to normal. To narrow it down, I eliminated those cookies one by one. The highlighted cookie in the following screenshot is the culprit: http://i45.tinypic.com/oayb11.jpg.

    I posting here assuming that the site holder has no control over the cookie at the level it would cause an error. Since I have not tested this with FF or IE10, I don't know if it's browser specific. In case it is, I'm also reporting this to Opera.

  2. Please bring this up on wordpress.com. WordPress.org is for selfhosted installs of WP only.
