Description Filip Maljkovic [Dungodung] 2005-11-18 17:41:05 UTC
A friend of mine has told me that he has troubles logging into sr language
projects other than wikipedia. To be exact, he can't login to srwikibooks,
srwikinews, srsources, srwiktionary and srquote, whereas he can normally log to
srwikipedia. The error he's been getting is something about his cookies being
blocked and he's switched through Opera, IE and Firefox and has been getting the
same error. What's the catch?
Comment 1 Rob Church 2005-11-20 00:22:31 UTC
Has he tried clearing his cookies and cache, checked that his cookies *are*
enabled in all the browsers, etc? What's the exact error text?
Comment 2 Anna Kindberg 2005-12-21 18:45:37 UTC
I have the same problem. I have had this problem with wikitravel (Swedish and 
English version. I have emptied cache and cookies and also checked the security 
checkings. They are on low. I have also tried to turn off the firewall. No luck. 
This problem exists for me on all computers I tried...
Comment 3 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-12-21 18:56:19 UTC
Did your friend create an account on the other sr: projects ?

What kind of error does he have when attempting the connection ?

I don't know the exact message as it didn't occur to me, but he described it as
not being able to log in because of cookies.

Comment #2: Wikitravel is not one of our projects, we don't run it.

Comment #4: Please provide an exact error message if there is one. If using a privacy proxy, check the

Helo. I am dungodung's friend with a problem login on sister projects.

Yes I made accounts on other but that is all I could do. When I try to login
this message appear: Грешка при пријављивању:
Wiktionary користи колачиће (''cookies'') да би се корисници пријавили. Ви сте
онемогућили колачиће на Вашем рачунару. Молимо омогућите их и покушајте поново

Comment 7 Brion Vibber 2005-12-24 01:10:43 UTC
Can you confirm:
1) Browser is not set to reject cookies for those sites
2) Privacy proxy, if any, is not set to reject cookies for those sites
3) Does the browser list cookies for those sites when you view the list of cookies?
Comment 8 Milan Jelisavcic 2005-12-24 10:34:38 UTC
I usually use firefox. On the cookies options I enabled option ''Alow sites to
set cookies''. I even put them in exeption list, I mean,,, etc. (''alowed'' of course). 

And yes, browser does list cookies for those sites when I view the list of cookies.
Comment 9 Milan Jelisavcic 2005-12-24 11:54:44 UTC
I forget to mention that I can login on both serbian end english wikipedia but
not on serbian sister projects.
Comment 10 Milan Jelisavcic 2006-02-14 14:52:07 UTC
