Login not working

  1. Hi
    I've been using the Wordpress app for iPhone. When I try to access the dashboard, it prompts me for a Username and Password . My username is already filled in, so I type in my password. It fails, and it prompts me to try again. I know that I'm typing it correctly. In settings, my password is also correct. It works on my desktop though. I did notice this however, if I reset my password, it will allow me to login with the new password.

  2. I too have the same issue.

    Attempt to view "stats" via the JetPack branded login screen.
    I enter Username and Password and select "Save Credentials".

    I see a message box titled "Error" with the content "Invalid username or password" and two buttons "Need Help?" and "OK".

    Two things that are perhaps noteworthy regarding my account:
    1) When I registered a did so using upper and lowercase letters for the username "DeanMarkTaylor" (trying both does get me past the error").
    2) My password is long, it's 22 characters log

    I have tried both typing and copy and pasting the password into the password box.

    I hope this additional information helps.

    Cheers,
    Dean.

  3. Does the password include a quote (") character?

  4. It does not. It does contain a dollar sign.

  5. My password does not include a quote (") character either.

  6. And this only happens on Mobile

  7. And I'm still able to use/edit everything and post. It's just "view admin" that doesn't work.

  8. OK, dollar sign shouldn't be a problem. If you try to login from Mobile Safari does that work?

  9. It does! I would still like to use the application.

  10. Has there been any progress on this issue?

  11. What is the URL of the blog? Is it hosted on WordPress.com or somewhere else?
    If you change your password to a similar one without the dollar sign or other special characters, does it work?

  12. My website is http://grant.hauskins.com. I'm hosting with Yahoo. Even without the dollar sign I can not view admin in the application. I can still edit posts, and pages. I also should note that I am using the latest version of Mantra as my theme.
    Thanks,

  14. If I go to http://grant.hauskins.com/wp-login.php I get a login form, but if I go to http://grant.hauskins.com/wp-admin/ I get redirected to http://hauskins.com/grant/wp-login.php instead.

    If you add your blog to the app as "hauskins.com/grant/" instead of grant.hauskins.com, does dashboard work? "View site" will probably break in that case, but then I might know what's really going on

  15. When I go to settings, I try to update the field "URL" to "hauskins.com/grant/" And "http://hauskins.com/grant/" it then attempts to "authenticate"and says that it fails, and suggests that I "update my credentials"

  16. When I click any link on http://grant.hauskins.com/ I get a "This webpage has a redirect loop" error. I'm not 100% sure it's related, but it's probably interesting to fix that and see if that helps.

  17. Huh. That's never happened to me or anybody before. This is strange. I'm not exactly sure how to fix it, and I can't really look in to it now. I would like you to know that I really appreciate all the help I have received, and would love to fix any and all issues that remain.
