Can't log in to the WordPress admin with Chrome?

Are you having trouble logging into a Local WordPress site with Chrome?

Some Local users have reported this issue, and it seems to be a bug in the recent version of Chrome. However, it does not affect all users.

Here are two options that should allow you to log in to the WordPress admin:

Option 1:
Open the login page, and fill out the form as normal, but hold down the “Shift” key when you press the Login button. This will open a new tab, but also log you into the site. Crazy right?

Option 2:
If you are comfortable using a development build of Chrome, it looks like they have fixed whatever is causing this issue in the most recent stable build. You can download that here:
