Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Resetting your password:

Postby Riocaz » May 12th, 2015, 3:53 pm

To reset your password you click the link: ucp.php?mode=sendpassword

You will receive an email with the subject "New password activation" with your new password. It also contains a link that you MUST click in order to activate this new password. IT WON'T WORK UNTIL YOU CLICK THE LINK (This stops someone maliciously changing your password).

Once you have logged in you can either keep your new password (which is secure as the system generates them and I don't see it). OR you can change it by clicking "User Control Panel" (below the Wildfood logo) then "Profile" (2nd tab in from the left), then "edit account settings"

It's always a good idea to follow the directions exactly the first time you try a recipe. But from then on, you're on your own. -- James Beard

Just to add to this.

When you try to change your password, the Wildfood BBS software will send an email to your designated email address. Some email service suppliers, in an attempt to protect their customers, block emails following their own rules. Normally it is possible to set up what is called a "Whitelist" which as the name implies is the opposite of the "blacklist". All emails from people or email addresses on the white list will automatically be accepted by your email system and arrive in your inbox.

However, setting up and managing your white list and any other filters that your email supplier has set up with or without your knowledge is something only you can do. Here at Wildfood, we cannot possibly make changes to your personal email account.

I hope that helps and clarifies what can otherwise be somewhat frustrating.

The Earth is degenerating today. Bribery and corruption abound. Children no longer obey their parents, every man wants to write a book, and it is evident that the end of the world is fast approaching.
