Solved Can't change password!

Post by Dumbledore27 on October 5th 2010, 6:21 pm

I am using two computers, and I have saved my password on one, but not on the other, so I wanted to change the password on the computer it is stored. I went to Admin Panel and changed the password as normally. But next day, I wanted to log in on the other computer, it said the password is wrong. So today, I wanted to log in again on the computer I know the password, it said it's wrong again, so I reset it via the utilities, and I changed it again. So before I went on the other computer trying, I opened a new browser and entered the password, and it said it's wrong Shocked
I am 100 % sure I typed it correct, I changed it just a minute before.
Can anybody explain this? I'm unable to change my password scratch

just send your self a new password then change it once again after you receive the new one.

I don't think you understood me. Confused
I have reset my password, but then I wanted to change it, and when I tried to log in once more, I had to reset the password again to access my account. Wink

so send your self a new password via i forgot my password option by your forums log in box. then when the pass is sent use that to log in to your forum and this time change it to the correct one and one you will not forget.

or if you want you can just log into the forums utilities using your original email and pass the forum was created with and you can get into your admin panel that way to then change your pass to the correct one you wish

Hmm... That's what I did. But when I change my password, I get the Password is incorrect message :/

When I change my password it says it doesn't work when I try to re-log in, whether I use the new password or the old one.

EDIT: It works now. Smile
