    Just go into your profile and click the "change password" link on the first page of your profile. You can change it there.

    At first I thought you were talking about my favorite game - Password - I just recently found the old game on YouTube - gotta love it.

    Then I saw you had a password issue. Here is an article that many people might find useful. It talks about how to make unique but memorable passwords for each application you use. Basically you make a "base password" and then you attach something relevent to the site to the beginning or end. So my base might be from the sentence I Love Chickens And Goats - I would translate it to - ilc&g then for BackYardChickensForum I would add ilc&gbycf

    If I needed a password for Mother Earth News I would use the base and the new site so the password would become ilc&gmen. If a site does not accept characters I would just change the & to 7.

    The article is clearly written and explains it more clearly....hope it helps - I slowly changed all of my passwords to this sort of format and I less frequently forget my password...

    It ask for the old pass word in order to change it. Thus I cannot access it. Jean

    1) Loggout and then go to login and there will be a tool to reset your password.

    or
