Forgotten password
« on: April 09, 2012, 15:14:17 PM »

 Password reminder

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you're trying to login to the Forum but have forgetten or lost your password, you can retrieve it with the lost password tool by following the Forgot your password? link from the login screen.


You can enter either your username or your email address so long as you check the appropriate option, then click the Send button to send yourself an email containing a link to reset your password. It's also possible to avoid the email altogether if you've set yourself a secret question and answer in your profile, but please beware of questions that anyone could answer or guess (like 'what is the first color of the rainbow?', which would be a very bad choice)!

As we know, there is always a way round these things, thank goodness.  But I dont understand why it didnt work, and hopefully our techno crew (!) will look into it and let us know asap please.

Gosh this is a worry! Thankfully you both continued. I wonder how many people have just given up!  :-\

I am SO frustrated with this!  I did notice you enquiring for it gommargal, and was pretty concerned for you. Thank goodness you remembered the password. I am not sure how I can help with this, other than everyone giving me their password when they register and me giving everyone my email address to contact me direct if they forget!! 

Would "high admin" please advise on this.   :-\

Hi there ,

 Keep testing this and there appears to be nothing wrong from my end. Have just logged out and asked for forgotten password option three times and have received an e mail asking me to reset three times both on username and on the e mail address given under my members name.

 Is the problem occurring under user name or e mail address ?

 Is it worth just checking that your e mail address is valid in the members list ?

 Sorry if you have done this but if you are still getting trouble will take up with SMF .

 BL  :)

I had my original passowrd but could not log in at all.I thought perhaps I may have used the incorrect password after all so tried the link.no response after more than a dozen attempts.have now re registered but  had to use an "incorrect" email address to do this (I kept getting an error message stating that my correct email address was already in use  >:( )...I am now unable to update  my profile to my correct email address...but yes you have guessed it...I cannot do this because it is already in use with another member (me)..
If I have problems in the future it now means that I cannot get a reply because my email adress I  used is incorrect.

So frustrating

I had the same problem Gommar Girl, i have made numerous requests but have not received a reply, thank goodness i am permanently logged in but i would like to change a few things and need my password to do this. I naturally assumed it was because i am a persona non grata in this chat room but obviously there is a major fault in the SMF system. :o.
Don't worry........Be happy !!!!
