    Hi,
    I'm new to all of this and I'm having trouble logging into my blog for the first time. I've looked at the password doc and nothing there has been a help. The reset password email hasn't worked and I have no idea where the ADMIN tab to change the password myself is. Can anyone help me with that?
    Thanks

    I've tried all of these,and nothing has worked. I can't even get to an 'admin' tabe to change the password. Would be really helpful to email someone and get help, i have a blog I can't access because of log in issues.
    Is there any other way I can change the password?

    Would be super nice if the 'lost your password' reset button actually sent me a new password. Can this be fixed?

    What happened when you tried the emergency password reset script? I've never known that not to work for someone.

    Haven't tried the emergency reset, I don't know how to save the script to the root of my wordpress installation (nothing there to show me how to do it).
    Thanks cubecolour, I'll try that I the morning (ill search for a way to save the script and try that way)

    It does - honest! If you're not getting the mails, then either they're ending up in a spam bin/filter or there's a problem with your site ending out emails. In the meantime, have you also looked at Resetting_Your_Password?

    I have been checking my spam bin each time I check for the inbox for the reset password but nothing. I don't know how to do the emergency reset, I've read through it but just don't know. I may have to go and get someone to help me with it...didn't think it would be so hard to get a password reset, I'm new to it all (obviously) but some email support would be really handy. Thanks anyway

    Have you tried some of the other methods in Resetting_Your_Password?
