    more specific please? Which password? in your own wordpress blog? or here on wordpress.org.

    for your own blog, goto your profile on http://your-site.com/wp-admin/profile.php

    "Users" - "Your Profile" - scroll down to the bottom of the page - two boxes - you need to type in the password twice in case of a mispelling.

    If you have Admin privileges you can change anyone's password.

    Back in 2008 my son set up a blog for me. I haven't accessed it for months. I just found it thru google and low and behold it is in this WordPress format. I can read my initial entries, but cannot login via WordPress to add more entries. It doesnt recognize my email adddress.

    Any thoughts?

    reset your password with one of these methods
    likely your user name is "admin"
