I can't figure out how to change my email address in the profile section. All I see is how to change password. Please help. Make it simple please.

Hi Brandon. I just signed up on the support forum. I meant my forum. I didn't even know I had a profile section in the support forum.

Hi @Gator Girl,

Try this: Go to your Administration Panel >> Users & Group >> Users Options >> User Settings >> Allow users to change their e-mail address : Yes >> then save it. Wink

You can also change yours and other users' email addresses in their profiles via the acp (admin panel). You can do this by going to ACP (admin panel)-->Users and groups-->Search users-->Click the user you want to change the email address of.

I've tried to change it in both places. I am not given the option, only the option to change user name. I'm frustrated and don't understand this. Hope you have other suggestions.

Sorry, the reason I said keep it simple is because I'm not an expert with computers.  I don't know how to do screenshots.

Yeah, I just checked on my profile on my forum, it does not let me change my email address in my profile, however, I can still do it in the admin panel.


May you provide a SCREENSHOT of the profile in the admin panel so I can see why it may not be working.

Actually not really, I can not see the profile field box itself, all copying and pasting does is copy the info already there. It doesn't help me understand why it isnt changing for you. For example if you get any error messages, a screenehot would show me this whereas copying and pasting wouldnt.

Brandon, thank you for your help.  I figured out how to do it FINALLY. 

I didn't want to provide a screenshot because it would have shown my email address and I have been reprimanded for accidentally posting it previously.

In the screenshot, if you go in paint, just blank it out or cover it. You could also put it in 'hide' tags (
Code:
[hide][/hide]
) and a spoiler. That way only moderators, admins and users who reply to the post can see it.

@Ape and @SLGray , it is not, but I am waiting on a screenshot of the problem he/her is having, but he/her is afraid to post it now after Slg's reminder. If one of you could reassure its ok to post, it would truly help me help him/her with understand their issue and help them resolve it.
