Unable to access “Admin” area

  • I’ve just setup BBPress and integrated it with my WordPRess blog ( and ). The integration worked perfectly.

    However, I find myself today unable to access the Admin area. I could get in yesterday by doing the recommended logout/purge cookies/login , but Today every time I click “Admin” it just bounced back to the main forum page.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    First see if it’s just your browser remembering the old redirect by adding something like ?123 on your /bb-admin/ url


    also try deleting the cookies again for your site

    No luck, still redirects with the ?123412341234 added… Deleting cookies hasn’t helped either.. Tried it about 6 times now :-(

    If it helps, I’m using the 1.0.6 Alpha, downloaded yesterday.

    It looks like something calls wp_auth_object’s set_current_user, before it verifies the cookie.. So when it gets into the WP_Auth’s “validate_auth_cookie”, the necessary cookies have been erased.

    The problem is coming from line 86 of the wp_auth class, where “set_current_user” calls the “do_action(‘set_Current_user’)”, which destroys the cookie necessary for the Admin AUthentication.

    It’s called from bb_settings.php line1036…. So, how do we fix it?

    Well I gave up.. I reverted to 0.9 & the “Freshly BAked Cookies” plugin, and managed to restore everything (with about 45 minutes work).



    Sorry about that but that’s yet another example why I keep telling people not to use the alpha on live sites.
