WordPress didn’t recognize me

    Just curious if anybody knows how this could have happened.

    After attempting to post an article to my blog I was directed to login. So I go find my password and teh sytem doens’t recognize me. so i ask for a new password. Get one and retry. Nope the system doesn’t recognize me again. Then I notice it doesn’t recognize my username. WTF? so I delete it from the box, re-type it with the new password and it says hello.

    yes I lost about 2.5 hours of work. Big whoop I can recreate that.The thing is, it was scary. I thought I lost access to my blog. I searched around for alternative access to WordPress and didn’t see any.

    as the kids say WUWT? Is there some way to contact WordPress w/o logging in? Would WordPress give me access to my blog manually from a live help desk or something?

    The blog I need help with is backchecksblog.com.


    The autosave should have saved your posts. Look in the revisions module down below the editor text window.

    Anytime this type of thing happens, log out, clear your browser cache and cookies, restart your browser and then try again.



    yes, auto save did work on the posts already up. Lost the one I was working on though.

    Just finished Trend-Micro Housecall. All clean. Will clear cache now. then d-frag and all that other good stuff. Thanks.

    BTW, dropped you a note about a possible project.


    @brad, I’m behind on emails, but just replied.

    Let’s hope that all the hoops you are jumping through will fix the problem for you.
