resetting my password?

12 Mar 2015 23:41

I get instructions to reset my password and I will get a temporary one so I can go to my profile and reset my random generated password. problem is I don't know the random password and I cannot copy it to reset the random password to my chosen one. So this could be hard to do.

It did finally work but after several attempts. last time through I went a different page when I clicked the same link and things started to work after that

Anyone else struggling, go to 'Edit profile' in top right hand corner, 'Profile', then 'Edit account settings', that should get you there....

Did every user have to reset their passwords? I reset mine to the EXACT SAME ONE, so I don't see why it was required unless it was a broad exercise that all forum users took part in.

Hi irondan,

Yes, everyone had to reset their password - it was a necessary step in our move from VBulletin to phpBB. If anyone is having problems re-setting their password, I will investigate this tomorrow (Monday 16th March) when I am back in the office. I will work through all the queries on the the feedback form as fast as possible.

I never changed anything. I saw a password reset email I think but I just hit the log in button and here I am I assume my password is the same but can't say for sure

Why do I have to log in every time I visit forum when I check the "log me in automatically" box
