How to fix WordPress cookies are blocked or not supported by your browser

WordPress is great development ever happens to the blogging world. It is open source and it has wide spread possibilities and liberties for web-developers to try different ideas and innovations. It is many a time plugged by different bugs which happen to be difficult of detection. As compilation of WordPress comes with server and host levels, so many different computers are associated with this while executing a certain part of the PHP code. WordPress most of its coding have been under PHP and it requires client and server side compilations. When, WordPress code is executed, simultaneously comes the server, hosting, content delivery network and own computers and then concerned PHP code executed from within a web browser on your computer.

Content delivery network and server side firewall:

On one fine morning, I decided to buy a content delivery network as well as cloud server firewall for mohanmekap dot com in order to showcase and provide users a malware free website. Configuration is completed with changing of A records as well as Cname records and then I wait for DNS propagation so that after few hours website would be live. It all goes well and website loads faster with nice content delivery network attaches with it so that every page is now loading at nearest server location and website is now equally distributed to the to and from servers all over the world. It is now with server side firewall so that each portion of suspicious web presence is now thoroughly scanned with.

I got the message cookies are blocked or not supported by browsers:

After that mohanmekap dot come works nicely and it comes with revived faster times due to addition of a content delivery network. Now, one more problem created when after writing a new article, and then I decided to log in the WordPress administration to reach posts and then add a new post and then posting to website. I launch Google Chrome as it was my favorite because of its speed, reliability and brilliant password manager which linked with user account and automatically download all passwords within seconds after a newer installation of a web browser. I then reach for example dot com back slash wp-login dot php to enter into administrative area of WordPress. Most of web masters use this frequently to post articles. I do the same but surprisingly. It returns with comment of “Cookies are blocked or not supported by your browser. You must enable cookies to use WordPress”. Time and again, I tried to log in to it and it comes with some comment and could not enter into the dashboard of WordPress website. It was the saddest part and the most disappointment for me as I could not post the article but website is on and it has new content delivery network as well as server side firewall for security.

I could not log into WordPress database and then the process of reverse re engineering begins:

Naturally, I reached for WordPress support and luckily there are so many discussions on the same subject but most solutions do not solve my problem of logging into WordPress. It was the most disappointment for me as I speculate whether the new content delivery network and server side firewall is obstructing this, but with due course of discussions with their support staffs which were very helpful to help me out and I soon find out, that on other computer I am able to log in to WordPress dashboard but not able to do this on my Windows 8.1 computer. Even, I could enter into the WordPress dashboard from android device but not with my office computer. The essential point of resolve is that there is no way any fault with content delivery network as well as server side firewall of website and not even on Cpanel hosting. As with other computers and devices I could easily enter into the WordPress dashboard.

My stepping stone to success to resolve ‘enable cookies’ in browser issues:

About Opera

About Opera

Now, it is time to put through scan of Windows 8.1 computers, and finally, I scanned it and found nothing as the computer is clean and no trace of any malwares is found. Most of WordPress website runs with PHP scripts which do not have inter compiler but it compiles live with a web browser. Besides Internet Explorer, there is Google Chrome and Opera are installed on my system. I normally use Google Chrome but I do use Opera, in order to spend less on mobile data due its Opera turbo features. Suddenly, I remember that of late Opera has revived its code to Chromium open source with its own code project. So, I do have Google Chrome which is also based on some open source project with that of opera has. If you want to check it just go to the Opera menu then ‘About opera’ and you can refer a screen shot for this.

Similarly, launch Google Chrome, then click on its ‘customize and control’ then click on ‘About Google Chrome’ to find out that both Chrome and Opera are based on the same set of open source codes known as Chromium open source-project. Recently, I have been a fan of Adguard plugin to filter advertisement, spyware, social media filter and phishing and malware-protection. So, I installed this extension on both Google Chrome and Opera. It speeds up web browsing and removes all web-annoyance. Then, I disable Adguard on Google Chrome and enable it on Opera. I completely remove Adguard from Google Chrome and then open example dot come reverse slash wp-login dot php and now after putting, the user name and password. Google Chrome reached to the dashboard of WordPress, and I clearly know where the fault was.

Adguard Extension for Chrome and Opera

Adguard Extension for Chrome and Opera

Actually both Chrome and Opera run with open source Chromium projects and this is being considered by the server side firewall and content delivery network of hosting as one gateway. Adguard removes all traces of web browser activities and for this server side firewall unable to put a permanent cookie on my computer so that it would not go for a check again and again when I logged in. Server side firewall could only white list my web browser with the help of installation of cookies but from a distance it feels suspicious that two web browser ends are behaving differently and in order to know it install one cookie and white list it but still Adguard extension on both browser able to remove that and it continues further and this creates suspicion on mind of server side firewall and also Adguard stops that site from loading.

One could also white list administrator login to WordPress inside Adguard but it is better to remove this extension from the web browser which is used to log to administrative dashboard of WordPress. Without removing Adguard, then I tried to log into WordPress administration with opera but it left with the same set of messages like earlier. This goes on to prove that Ad guard extensions on both web browsers with similar codes are obstructing login for example dot com reverse slash wp-login dot php and now after removing Adguard extension this problem is now stand resolved. In the end, I would always recommend to use your mind when as webmaster as most times the solvent sequences written around the internet will not help you till you reach the real problem. I do hope most of webmaster would benefit from this genuine answer to ‘Cookies are blocked or not supported by your browser. You must enable cookies to use WordPress’.
