    Update….I was reading the code on the wp-login.php page and noticed that the code is set that if cookies are disabled to not login even with a valid user and password. I went into IE and set my machine to allow third party cookies…and Voila! I was able to login. Does anyone know of a workaround for this? I know I can enable cookies in the security settings in IE however, I cannot control everyone elses browser. I would like to modify the code if possible so that it works on everyones IE browser. The code is below….

    // If cookies are disabled we can’t log in even with a valid user+pass
    if ( isset($_POST) && empty($_COOKIE[TEST_COOKIE]) )
    $errors->add(‘test_cookie’, __(“ERROR: Cookies are blocked or not supported by your browser. You must enable cookies to use WordPress.”));



    I am also having the same problem but this time it is in firefox, this isn’t good as most don’t even know what cookies are yet alone how to enable or disable them.

    I need a work around, can i just remove this check? is it mandatory for buddypress to use cookies to function? what are the risks of disabling this feature?
