Password suddenly doesn't work anymore

#1 Post by bbsadmin »

A few members have complained recently that their passwords don't work anymore. These are people who have been logging in regularly since we upgraded the board.

Nothing has changed on the board or in any of your accounts. If you suddenly can't seem to log in, I suggest that you totally clear your browser cache and try again. That means clearing all cookies, etc.

If, a few weeks ago, the message board generated a new temporary password for you, please remember that it is TEMPORARY and needs to be changed in your profile. This might explain why some passwords suddenly no longer work after a couple of weeks.

If you have done these things and still have a problem, please email me at: webmaster@archwired.com
