BBPress Login Failure (Blank Screen with Single Dot)

    I installed BBPress created a few forums, used the shortcode to display the forums and they work fine. I added the BBPress Login Widget to my site and when I try to login I’m re-directed to mysite.com/wp-login.php but with a completely blank screen and one single period mark in the top left corner. If I login through my default login page I’m able to login fine but the BBPress login widget has this problem. It does this with or without a username or password being entered in its forms when you press login.

    It is not taking me to my 404 page, this is something different because it’s not actually taking me to mysite.com/wp-login.php either, even though that’s what the browser reads. It’s as though it is being interrupted mid process and then producing this blank screen with a single dot.

    I disabled all plugins (excluding bbpress). Did not fix the problem.

    Disabled my theme and activated default 2013 theme. Same problem.

    I read on another post, five years old I think, that someone was having a similar issue where BBPress was putting a period before the www part of his site. Other information I read seemed to point to trouble with WP secrete keys in the php being ajar from BBPress php keys or config files, but I found no such files in my plugin folder, I guess those methods are outdated.

    My site error logs are recording no issue directly regarding the plugin either. Anyone know what the deal is? Thanks.

    Using the widget to logout works fine by the way, just not logging in.

    Did you ever find a resolution to this problem?

    Yeah I did. It’s been so long though I’m trying to remember what I had to do. I know that I ended up not using the BBPress login widget and instead went with the “WP Login Box” widget. I had to do some configuring on the settings I think but was able to set the whole thing up to where users were only able to login to their BBPress account and not have backdoor access to the wordpress site itself.

    I think it had something to do with wordpress making an update where they screwed up default cookie configurations. I went looking in my wp-config file and found that I put this there. Truth is I can’t remember if this was for the same problem or something else, it’s been a while since I was last working in wordpress. Try putting this in your wp-config.php file after your last set of “defines” near the top. Hope that helps.

    /**wordpress 3.x cookies error solution**/
    define(‘ADMIN_COOKIE_PATH’, ‘/’);
    define(‘COOKIE_DOMAIN’, ”);
    define(‘COOKIEPATH’, ”);
    define(‘SITECOOKIEPATH’, ”);

    Thanks BuckyOHare. The wp-config.php didn’t work for me. I will use the WP Login Box for now and continue to look for a solution. I will post it here when I do.

    Thanks

    you can add a modal login which looks prettier than the wp-admin
