    The admin-user name I am using to log into the WordPress prog it self to work on my blog is "jim88" (without the quotes). I don't remember what version of WordPress I downloaded, probly the latest one since I am just starting out on my 1st blog. I tried to log into the forum here with jim88 and my password and I couldn't get in. I tried a password reset with every working email address that I have (3 in all) and I get email address is unknown. I tried a password reset with the user name jim88 and I got a message back saying "password reset info sent to registered email address". I checked all 3 of my email address's and no password reset has arrived. I had to re-register new in order to make this post. What gives? oooo my blog is at steveshamshack.com My blog is in it's very early infancy right now. This is all new to me.

    There is no connection between the username/password you use to log onto your own site and your account here for logging onto the forums.

    It seems like the user name jim88 is already in use here. I would normlly have used the same user name in both places. So why can't I recover the jim88 password?

    It seems like the user name jim88 is already in use here.

    Someone else has evidently used it.

    If you can't reset your site's login info by the email reset method, you can use some other methods - detailed here:

    That link references WordPress.com so does not apply to self-hosted WordPress sites.

    If you have a site on WordPress.com which you are asking about, You are in the wrong place. These forums support self-hosted WordPress only.

    For WordPress.com support, you need to go to http://forums.wordpress.com

    If you are unsure of the difference between WordPress.org and WordPress.com, please see http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    I must have hit a wrong link or something. I don't have anything running on WordPress.com. My blog is hosted on a friends server. With only the diffrence between the 2 is .com or .org it is easy to make a mastake.

    The system is asking me to post something before I can mark this topic as resolved.
