Problem authenticating your post Information


I know the cookies thing is a common problem, and here's mine! Here's the scenario:

After clearing all related cookies, both Firefox and Internet Explorer only allow me to log in when "Remember Me" is ticked, and are not allowing me to post (get the "authentication" error).

Vanilla version: 1.1.4
Contents of settings.php cookie section:
$Configuration['BASE_URL'] = '';
$Configuration['FORWARD_VALIDATED_USER_URL'] = '';
$Configuration['COOKIE_DOMAIN'] = '';
$Configuration['COOKIE_PATH'] = '/forum/';

It is integrated with Wordpress for themes, but not for logins. I cannot change themes either, it gives me the same "authentication" error.

Here is the forum:

Remedies tried so far:
- Cleared cookies

Please help!

    I have just had the same issue. I dont know how to solve your problem the way you would wish, however, you can get rid of the post authentication issue by switching back to the People.Class.Authenticator.php instead of the People.Class.WordpressAuthenticator.php. Sorry I can't be anymore help, trying to solve this too myself. At least this way, you can still use your forum! Cheers, D.

    I guess there was a problem with its php session settings. It must have been fixed since.
