  • Resolved richarduk


    I’m trying to log in to using my username and password from the forums, without success. I registered about 7 weeks for the trac.

    I seem to remember being required to update a password for the forums, not sure when.

    Anyhow, how do I get into my trac account?

    Trac is case sensitive. Make sure you’re using the right case for your usernme.

    Thanks, tried that. I’m using identical psword to forums, think I might have changed the forum password and not the trac one, haven’t got a record of the old trac one. Any way of getting it changed?

    Ah. So maybe something’s broken?

    It says here ‘You may login to this site using your username and password.’

    Since I’m logged in here to post this, shouldn’t I also be able to log in to trac?

    You shouldn’t have needed to register on trac if you already had an account here.

    I know. It doesn’t make sense to me. Am I right in saying there isn’t any way to register except by having a username and password from the forums? I have a ticket in my username on trac but can’t log in using my forum password. Obviously when I took the ticket out 7 weeks ago I was able to log in.

    Ho humm.

    You can only log into Trac with your ID and password…

    Can you log in to It’s not 100% the same as

    And I suppose where I’m stumped is where did you do this registration 7 weeks ago?

    Thanks, I can’t log in to though I can log in here. As far as I remember I registered when I submitted my theme. BUT I might have registered a few months before as a trial run to see how the theme submission process worked – if I did, and it was around the June reset of all passwords, could that be the problem?

    But then I wouldn’t have been able to submit my theme, would I?

    Can moderators reset things in any way? I don’t want to submit my theme from square one again as it’s a long wait … 🙂

    I remember I registered when I submitted my theme.

    Here’s the crux.

    Registered WHERE? 🙂 If you can answer that….

    (And I am a mod, I’d happily pass this on to someone with trac access, but I want to make sure he’s got the info he needs to figure out what you did.)


    My memory’s faulty.

    I uploaded the theme at (obviously 🙂 ) and to do that it says log in. So I must have logged in normally. The email I received gives my user name as richarduk and owner nofearinc so everything fine so far.

    I also got a link to the trac ticket. This is where it gets hazy. I had no need to log in at that point, but did I register, and if so, how? I have no idea how to register except under a new user name at

    I have no idea how I messed up, but I must have done 🙂

    I’m not sure you’re supposed to log in, mind you (I suck at themes, don’t dev ’em, just child ’em). I pinged my buddy on theme reviews.

    The login for all the trac’s is the exact same login as here on the Support forums.

    Username is indeed case sensitive, but your username (richarduk) is all lowercase anyway. Password is the same as well. Changing your password here on the forums will change it there on trac too. There’s no separate registration, we only have one unified system for usernames and passwords.

    Your theme ticket is here:

    And yes, you do need to login on trac to leave comments and such.

    If you’re having trouble logging in, change your password here on the support forums. The change *should* take effect immediately, I think, but don’t hold me to that. It may take up to an hour for the change to be reflected in trac.

    Brilliant! That did the trick. Thanks, Otto and Ipstenu.

    The effect did literally take place immediately.

    I wonder if the trac system doesn’t recognise certain characters. My original password was eBZL)jHU… (I’ve left off the last few characters). Perhaps that ) was what caused the problem?

    Anyhow, many thanks!
