Hello @peter59,
If you are wanting to change your email used here on the Support Forum, just click the "Profile" button on the top of the forum in the black navigation bar and in there you can change your email. Just change what you want it to be and click Save at the bottom.

Cheers,
James

Does it give you any sort of error message at the top of the page as to why it didn't change it @peter59?

Only this "You must fill in the required fields." I did complete all required fields, but on clicking save the old e-mail is displayed and the fields are empty.

Can you take a screenshot of your screen when it gives you that error?

Ah! One other thing, go to the new email that you are trying to use and there should be a validation email from Forumotion. Make sure you accept it to validate the new email.

Make sure you check your spam folders as that can also be where some of these emails may go depending on the email client.
