Apparently WordPress changed the way it actions a password form and now my passworded pages are no longer working. Below is one of the solutions given in the thread above. Where do I put this? I can’t find the file that this is supposed to go into.
“The issue of custom password forms not working post update to 3.4 is because the
actionhas been changed on the default WP form.
Where as it was –
It is now –
Update your custom form and you shoule be good to go.”
Getting back to this – I’ve tried to find where in theme there is a custom password form but can’t find it at all. I’ve reinstalled WordPress 3.5.1 but although the file wp-pass.php has been deprecated it is still on the server. Removing it didn’t make a difference.
After typing in the password on this page: http://voxharmony.org.au/wp/2010-repertoire/
but produces a blank page with only one fullstop in it.
As said, I’ve reinstalled WordPress 3.5.1 and have a new wp-login.php.
I’ve tried adding code to the functions.php to add a customised password-protect page with different wording and adding the wp-login.php?action=postpass statement, but this doesn’t seem to have any effect. The standard page is still showing and produces the same error. Besides, it is calling the right statement, but it is not showing the page or even seems to be running the statement.
I can’t go into this issue on a code-level personally, however if it’s a theme bug, our development team is currently working on an update for MikMag to support WP3..5 (which it currently doesn’t). I’m adding password protected pages to the list for them to check if that works with the update.
That would be great. I’ve posted the same question on WordPress.org but no-one there seems to be able to help. As far as I can see your theme does not use customised password form pages (since I couldn’t find any). It seems strange as this function WAS working up until about 10 days ago. I did not add or update any plugins in that time, but there may have been another WordPress update…
Other people apparently are having the same issue not just with MikMag, but would sure like it if the new version would come out soon. Any expected date of delivery?
There is currently no date set just yet. This is mainly because we want to take all the time we feel we need to make sure the theme functions properly before releasing the update. We do try our best to get it done as soon as possible.
I see on our developers log that the password protections have been added to the update so that should be included when we release it.
This turned out to be a hosting provider issue. I changed hosts and the problem was resolved.
