Multiple Password changes ?

Postby KathyLPV » 17 Feb 2015, 09:42

Hi all Off Topic folks,

I came on after a year, & my password didn't work. So I did the "forgot Password thingy" & was able to get in. Then I kept looking through the FAQ & posts about Passwords (very few) to find out how to reset it to what I can remember, & can't find anything that shows how to change a password. Nothing in FAQ, & only 3 posts address this topic:
1 says Members can change - just don't contact the admin, unless you forgot.
2 says go to "my account" & then to "my registration details" - I can find neither on any page!
3 says go to the main menu in the column on the left side of the page, under category ,,, to the admin … Edmondo … a complete contradiction of the first post !?!

& since then, I've just received 2 more E-mails - each with a "new unrequested & relatable passwords" - which I didn't request! I did not type any info in the spaces to send me a new one, I just went to those pages, to look for a way to change the one given via the first E-mail!
What's up doc? mille grazie a tutto!

Thanks, Liviomoreno,
But nothing like that - was above the forum page. I had to go to back to "my page." AGUH! New password was finally accepted . . .
> But, AGUH ! When I put in my E-mail address, it went back to my "user name" afterwards !?! Wha?

> & what about those "unrequested" E-mails for new passwords? Just because you go to various pages, including the "forgot password" page - but don't send a request, means you automatically get a new one via E-mail? So, I ignored all later ones.

PS. I'm not & no longer a newbie. I found this site in 2010, I just don't post here often . . . But I've been doing research off line since 1884, & on line since 1996. ; > }

Hmm. Weird! It certainly wasn't there when I came in before, now it is - after IT records extraction!
Oh well.
