wp-admin access and login problem - a hint (1 post)

    I installed the plugin following the instruction step by step, yet I faced the problem that had been metioned few times before i.e.: I could not log into the wp-admin panel.
    Finaly I did it after i found that the session id disappears.

    I don't how it looked in other cases in which the plugin casued the problem in accessing wp-admin but here it is what i found:
    1. I perform a proper installation
    2. I login in using sidebar widget 'phpBB Bridge Users' an I get redirected to phpBB login page and back again to WP site as a logged user
    3. Now, in the sidebar panel I have several links, some of which directs to administration of phpbb and WP.
    However, the seesion id is not sticked to links directed to wp-admin!
    The links looks like these:
    phpBB link: http://www.domain.com/forum/adm/index.php?sid=0e474...
    WP link: http://www.domain.com/wp-admin/

    So if you add the session id to the latter you instantly get the access to wp-admin:

    The same situation with each and every single link in the admin menu - you need to apped session id manually to open any tab.
    This is problably the only way you can easily diable the plugin (in a quite civilized way)
    I wish it was helpful so developers could fix the bug.
