    ok, I can't log into wordpress at all. I know that admin is the user I have but nomatter what password I use, it doesn't work and even when I have them email the password to me it just shows up as a word, no login name and it says that the user doesn't exsist unless I use Krissy (another author) so can someone help me log into my account?

    Go into PHPMyAdmin and run a query like this:
    UPDATE wp_users SET user_pass = MD5('newpassword') WHERE user_login = 'admin'
    Assuming wp_ is your prefix...

    I really don't get what you're saying, but I went to my wp-users.php page coding and at the bottom put SET user_pass = MD5('quickie') WHERE user_login = 'admin' and when i went to log in nothing changed, it still said wrong password..i even registered a new user and it still told me wrong password for that user

    Then it's probably a cookie problem. Check if you have any cookies set for the domain, clear you cookies and try again, and make sure the siteurl setting is correct for where you have WordPress.
