Password email problem

  • Author

    So, I’m using a new (used) netbook running an antiquated Linux. It doesn’t have my WordPress password stored in it. I try the last two passwords I had for the account; they don’t work. Mind you, nothing works right on this machine: If I try to type @ I have to use the ” key, and vice versa. Anyway, I click on the I Forgot My Password button, go to my email, there’s the email with the CLICK ON ME link. I click on it.

    It takes me to a page that asks me for my password.

    You can see that this is a problem. The email itself does not contain a password. I can’t set a new password until I can get into the account.

    Is it just this ancient, accursed machine, or is it like this for everyone?

    Also, when I went to post this, it made me sign in, even though I was already signed in.

    Yes, Supportbot, I know. Profanity removed by Slik


    Never mind. 49 minutes later the email showed up.



    @raincoasterismad Please re-frame from using Profanity in the forums



    Why? The supportbot isn’t going to be offended.



    Because this is a public forum that humans read and staff would like it to remain a friendly atmosphere… But I am pretty sure you knew that since you have been here longer than I have…



    Yes, and I know that the supportbot doesn’t mind in the least.
