Changing forum email and or password if you are not a magazine subscriber
Posted by Wilbur Wright on Thursday, October 14, 2021 7:39 PM

I recently switched over to using a Mac.

 

I'm getting a message to strengthen my password.  I can no longer get into the very old email I used to join the forums 16 years ago.

 

How can I change my forum email and password, If I am not a magazine subscriber, and also can't access an ancient email account?    Any ideas?

Hello!

Usually in such case you write the admin of the site and ask him to change it "from the inside" for you. I never tried it here, but it's about the only option you have if that old e-mail isn't there anymore.

Good luck with it and have a nice day

I have a Macbook and a Windows 10 Dell desktop. For some unknown reason the Macbook never correctly handled the FSM  Forum. I can log into the Forum on my Dell, but I can't log into the Forum on my Macbook. I get a 401 Forbidden message.

Hey, JohnnyK, I saw your question, "What's a breadcrumb?" in the "broken navigation bar" thread.  That thread is now locked, so I couldn't answer, and I couldn't send you a PM, so I'm posting it here.

In software, a breadcrumb, more fully, a breadcrumb trail, usually appears in the upper left corner of a page, and it shows where you came from, to get to that page (breadcumb trail, like in Hansel and Gretel)

On this page, the breadcrumb trail is this:

Hope that helps clear it up!

Best regards,

Brad
