Go figure, this forum is PHPBB, which is one of the most popular forums on the internet (btw, I don't like PHPBB much, either - and I have to work with it on other sites I host.)

Thanks for posting these instructions. I found the new Forum very un-intuitive so far.

How to Change your Password

Post by weaverjk » Sat Mar 21, 2015 8:30 pm

Just logged on for the first time since the site switchover.
I'm an IT guy.
Can't find anywhere in the User Control Panel or Profile to change the randomly-generated password over to a password of my choosing.

Can anyone please tell me where to find the "change your password" link after you've logged in? Grrrrr.

No, not a Password *Reset*, but a Change of password if you already know your password.

Thanks!
