    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

    viz
