PostPosted: Sun Dec 30, 2018 3:08 pm    Post subject: password - email issue Reply with quote

When looking at my profile, I wanted to change the email to my actual address. I don't have access to the old one anymore. The form want my current password. With the automatic login, I don't remember that f. password. But according to the forum form, it is not necessary to provide the old password in order to change it. So I changed it. And now when I try to change the email address to the current one, and provide the newly created password, the form tell me that password is not valid.

What can I do in order to be able to login the next time I want to? Or can an admin take a look at it?
Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Same error message (in French here) if I try to change again the password:
Code:
The password you gave is different from the one into the database

Dominique_71,

email forum-mods at gentoo dot org if the email address on your account is not correct.
If it is correct any you no longer have your password, the login page has a "I have forgotten my password" link.

Please use the email address above as that reaches all the admins/mods.
If you PM or email me, you will need to wait until I'm online.

What kind of automatic login? All browsers I know can show you saved passwords.

You doubt, but you don't look. Right. Why go easy way. I'm sure it is still there, BTW. Chrome keeps all passwords.
