In progress Admin who has lost password to forum

Post by Archangel Andrew March 11th 2013, 7:09 am

Hi there,

I'm the Admin/Founder for [url]archangelsboards.tk[/url] (a url posted right at my forummotions site) and I try to log in as the admin but can't remember my password. When I give the email I signed up with it says The security 'Disallow admin to send new password' is active in Admin Panel > General Admin > Security
what do I do to get into the site? I don't want to have to start over!

I'm getting the same message. But it won't even let me log into my site at all. I'm at a complete loss.

Just one more post huh? So any thoughts then? I can't figure out what my password says and the feature of not allowing admins to reset passwords is activated - which is really dumb when you think of it for just this reason.

Yeah looked at that, tried it, it won't allow me to send PM's right now - for 7 days I guess? I thought I had enough posts now, but apparently not.

help.forummotion.com
archangelsboards.tk is what I use to direct people, the original site is a forum motion site though. This is the notice I get when I try to use my email to reset the password: New members are not allowed to post external links or emails for 7 days. Please contact the forum administrator for more information.

Hello,

To all founders who lost their password, please proceed to this topic:
https://help.forumotion.com/t93821-lost-founder-s-password

You need 2 posts to send PM's, you can post on any topic on the Forum discussions(forum) to earn posts.

Since this issue should be handled on PM, I'll lock and move this now.
