Changing my password

Changing my password


Postby weebirdie » Tue Jul 07, 2015 12:53 am

Sorry if I am being a bit dim here...

A while ago I forgot my password (seriously, my memory for these things is awful) so I asked for a new one. I got sent one, which is a string of totally random letters and numbers. I have searched and searched for how to change it to something I might actually remember but to no avail.....I know I can get my browser to save it, and I should have a copy of the original reset email, but I deleted the latter by mistake because I'm a totes crazy chick that way; and I'm not always accessing things from this particular machine...)

So...purrleeease....can you please point me in the direction of how I change my password?

Thanks a billion!

You can change your password from the drop down menu on your name at the top of the screen.

Choose Account Settings, then Profile Tab, then edit account settings.

You need to enter your old one to do it. If you don't know your old one you'd have to reset your password again from
the login screen.



This is in the frequently asked questions too :wink:

Choose Account Settings, takes you to User Control Panel, then the Profile Tab, then Edit Account Settings on the left, and it should be obvious then.
