    just read in a post, some people are having problems changing there login password, i know i was for ages and then stumbled upon this, instead of selecting USER CP - EDIT PROFILE - EDIT EMAIL & PASSWORD, if you look in the left hand margin at the bottom under USER MENU there is A MY PROFILE option, this will bring up a sort of contact card of your profile including avatar, last online etc, click on EDIT and then select UPDATE YOUR PROFILE this will present you with two tabs 1. Additional info and 2. contact info, select CONTACT INFO and here you can change your email address and password, don't foget to click on UPDATE before closing the window, this worked for me so hopefully will for others.;)

    Before you try this, please see Ed's reply at Post #12. or, as posted on similar thread in Suggestions area

    I don't have a USER MENU. Is that only for full memebers? Or am I just not seeing it?

    Thanks. For some reason it did not show that section on my work computor even though I was logged in. When I got home and came to the site to try again, there it was. But it wouldn't show me the new post link. :aargh4: So I logged out and logged back in with the new password and now everything is working. So far. Thanks again.

    Cheers bud,

    I had been in there but didn't spot the 'contact info' tab, so close yet so far away. Sorted now.

    PLEASE DO NOT USE THE METHOD ABOVE AS IT MAY OR MAY NOT WORK!!! worst case is that you may be locked out completely and the admin will have to fix your account by hand.
