Setting my own password

Instead of emailing or messaging the Admins or Mods with technical support questions or comments about the site, we prefer you check here to see if someone else has had the same difficulty or has made the same suggestion. What you're after might have already been posted and addressed here or within the FAQ. If not, please post a detailed description of the problem/suggestion and someone from the HST team will address your needs shortly. If you can't login/post and are unable to reset your password on your own, you may contact us directly.

Setting my own password

Post by js hill » Tue Mar 05, 2013 8:18 pm

I think I must have forgotten my password some months back so HST sent me a new one. It is one of those computer generated passwords, that I could never remember. I have to look up the password every time I log in. I have tried to reset my password but the reply is that my email address is already taken. Any help here would be greatly appreciated. As you can probably tell I am not that tech savvy. Thanks, js hill

Top right hand corner under Board index look for
User Control Panel and click on it.
Then click on the PROFILE tab
Go down the left hand side and click on Edit account settings
DO NOT ENTER IN YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS!!!!
Enter in new password then tab
Enter in new password again then tab
Enter in current password the hit enter and you should be done.
