WordPress fix Password protected pages does not work

    Password protected pages does not work, by barthdesigns


    Been using WordPress with Avada for 3 months now. I like it very much, used Weebly before, but I like WP more.

    I have a problem though, which I was unable to solve with Avada and WooCommerce authors. Both of them asked me to move on and turn to WordPress Support, so here I am.

    The problem is: no matter if I turn off Avada and turn off (deactivate) all plugins, it still persists. There is two problems, but I think the root cause must be similar or the same.

    So when I try to use password protection for a page, it does not accept the correct pass, simply reloads page. I tried with 2-3-4 pass variations, it is not the problem. It simple reloads the page after entering correct pass, and once again ask for pass.

    And the second problem is the same: I have installed a free WP LOCKER plugin, which password protects product categories. It should work, but it does the same, refreshes page after enetring password correctly.

    And it is very strange as sometimes it accepts the password.

    Please let me copy the list I did, asked by Avada and Woocommerce to solve the problem. It might be helpful:

    – updated Avada (did the backups)
    – updated all plugins
    did not help

    – deactivated all plugins except WooCommerce
    did help, I managed to sign in using the password

    OK, so one plugin is to be blamed. I thought, let’s turn them on step by ste-
    – I turned on the first 3 plugins (Accordion plugin, Bullet Security plugin and a Cookie plugin)
    – everything was fine, I changed password and managed to sign in again
    – great, then I activated another group of plugins: Custom Page Label, Duplicate Page, Easy Hotjar, FB Pixel and Fusion Builder.
    – than the password did not work

    Oh, how great, I found the plugin, it must be 1 of those 5! So I turned them off one after one.
    And without logic, it did not help. I even turned off the first 3 plugins I’ve activated at first, and the password did not work again.

    Then, I switched to another basic theme. Did not work, so switched back to Avada.

    I have no other idea. Please feel free to sign in and do as you wish as I can not seem to solve and I am out of ideas what can cause so random working/not working.

    The password for that page I’m trying to set uo is “proba”
