How do you change your password?


I've been through the "reset password" rigmarole *THREE* times now. The sequence is:

1. request a reset

2. receive the reset email

3. click the link

4. receive the new password in email

5. try the password, but it does not work.

So I repeat the titular question:

How do you change your password?

Why don't you just contact the forum administrator?

Edit Profile. On the left side of the page click Edit Email and password.
Enter your current password, the enter and confirm a new password.

I donít find anything here that works as you describe re: requesting a reset, etc.
Are you talking about changing your password somewhere else?

That's what I was wondering - a bit cryptic.

Change password for this forum? Or what site?

Please provide details.

Well, yes, it is for this site. I'm able to get in only because there are cookies that are still valid. If they get purged, then I'll have to sign up again. Meanwhile, I can't use my tablet without knowing the password. But it really is a website issue. The admins can hopefully explain why going through the rigmarole winds up with an "invalid password" response.

Again, see #3. Or use the contact form to contact the administrator, as suggested in #2.

I've confirmed the password reset works as expected. If you're copy/pasting the password, have you ensured an extra space isn't being appended to the end? Have any other members been impacted by this issue?
