Solved Password reset for admin..

Post by Anna-karin on August 10th 2016, 8:32 am

OK.
I've lost the admin password for my forum.

I've read the FAQ and I know I'm supposed to send a PM to one of the listed users (in that particular topic) in order to get the password for my admin account reset.
After trying that out, I failed miserably: "You haven't reached the post limit for sending private messages."

I performed a search and found out that it takes at least two posts to reach that limit. I'm hoping this one will be counted as the first.

Edit: As stated in the reply further down, only one post is needed. I obviously failed to read the "notes" section of the password topic - and the follow up post that clearly mentioned this as well.

Two posts did the trick. PM sent, hoping to get help whenever that user in particular goes online.

I don't need an answer for this topic. But you might want to leave it open so that other users who experience the same problem may put their first (and perhaps only?) two posts here after performing a search as I did. No point in having multiple threads on the same topic, right?

Or, you could just delete it. I don't really care.

If you read the whole topic about founder's password, you would have seen that you only needed 1 post to send a pm.

The topic was posted in the wrong section, so I have moved it to the correct section.
