    i already search all related boards but in vain
    i installed MU and created some test accounts
    all works fine with firefox but i can't login to any account using IE
    the login page just reload again and the url changes to "

    any idea what's wrong with IE and how to fix?
    Thanks in advance

    it works now and i can login BUT i can't logout even if i cleared my cache :(
    that's because i have just now applied this fix located here >>

    it states:
    modifications to wp-includes/pluggable.php:

    lines: 319-320

    setcookie(USER_COOKIE, $username, $expire, $cookiepath, COOKIE_DOMAIN);
    setcookie(PASS_COOKIE, $password, $expire, $cookiepath, COOKIE_DOMAIN);

    setcookie(USER_COOKIE, $username, $expire, $cookiepath);
    setcookie(PASS_COOKIE, $password, $expire, $cookiepath);

    any idea how to fix the new logout failure problem ?

    Please remember that it's your cookie cache that you need to clear. That's different from your normal browser cache.

    I also got the same problem.

    Clearing the cookie cache does not help.

    think it is the htaccess file.

    Ok here is my htaccess: Do you have the same?

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    # Rewrite to
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.(.*)
    RewriteRule ^(.*) http://%1/$1 [R,L]

    #uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*)?/?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Hi, I have the same problem of login with IE7.

    Been trying hard to find the problem.

    Also facing the same problem as Dahia.
    Any updates?

    Not sure if this is the same issue.

    Up until I upgraded to 1.1.1 I noticed no problems.

    Then yesterday I had a user add a blog and reported being unable to login.

    I have found a work round, which is for the user to log in via the root log in page instead of the blog's own log in page, but once logged in the user can't log out again except by logging out at the root domain logout.

    This doesn't seem to be browser related, and yes, I have tried clearing cookies and it didn't help.
