    Every time I try to login to the dashboard for my blog, it just redirects me to the login page. I can see the global dashboard, but can’t get into the dashboard for the blog.

    What’s the deal? This was working just last night.

    The blog I need help with is legalizeadulthood.wordpress.com.

    Its happening again now. IE8 on Windows 7. Every time I login and check “remember me”, when I try to go to my blog’s dashboard, it just sends me back to the login page.

    If I go to wordpress.com it shows me as logged in, but my blog doesn’t ever think I’m logged in.

    I recommend trying to clear your cookies and cache then restart your browser http://support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/

    This might be a windoze 7/IE8 issue. WordPress seldom makes any adjustments until after new browser – or operating systems – are out of beta and in full release.

    Does it work in Firefox?

    I don’t use firefox. It works on IE8 on XP and /sometimes/ works on Windows 7. Right now, its not working.

    OK, windows 7 is released now. When will there be a fix?

    Looking at the post/reply chatter with Fiddler2, my web browser sends a POST with the right form data (my username and password) to log me in and the response I get back from the POST is just the HTML for the login form again. The problem is definately in wordpress.

    @finediner, so is the problem ONLY with IE8 on Win7?

    Based on your description of getting redirected to the login page with no error message sounds like a browser cookies issue. Just to make sure, is your browser setup to accept cookies? (I would assume so, but just checking.) Note that clearing cookies can be separate from turning them on or off. It is also possible to block specific sites from saving cookies.

    Also, will have to find a Win7 machine to test on… I have WinXP…

    @finediner, found someone to test the WordPress.com login with Windows 7 and IE8 and it worked.

    Can you please make sure your browser is setup to accept cookies from WordPress.com?

    My browser, Chrome, is set up to accept cookies and I can’t look at certain parts of my dashboard. If I try to get detailed stats on certain posts I get redirected to a login page. My blog’s http://nextsignal.wordpress.com// It acted the same way in Firefox.

    And now I can’t log in to my blog at all. This is ridiculous.

    I’m having the same issues. Rodgerpm, after you attempt to login navigate to your blog url. You should now see the Blog management bar at the top of the page. You can then update and view certain portions of your blog ie. edit, view stats etc.

    I hope they come out with a workaround of some kind. :(
