A Fix for Wordpress Login Hangs

Interesting thing this morning with Wordpress hanging on a standard install. Lots of people are having trouble with getting to the dashboard on their own domains. This would appear to be connected with the site wordpress.org being down.
The dashboard page calls external info which must be hosted on wordpress.org - when the info doesn’t come through your browser hangs.

Try entering your login info then after waiting for a while, change the browser address to:
http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin/post.php
That let me into the admin section.

Next thing will be to comment out the external data calls within the code for the dashboard page so that this doesn’t happen again.
