I tried twice with two different user names but could not register for this forum with my main email address. My yahoo email works but that is not a convenient option for me.
I filled out the WP Forum registration form, hit the "register" button and got a message saying that I would receive an email with a password - but I never got the email...twice.
I attempted to log in with my username (with no password) several times which sends me to a page with a link to click for password recovery. Each time I ask for a new password, the system does send me an email (to my correct email address) with a link to generate a new password. I follow that link to the password reset page with the message:
"Your password has been reset and a new one has been mailed to you." But, I never receive the new password.
36 hours ago, I sent a message on this through the "WordPress.org website problems" page at http://wordpress.org/report-bugs. But, the only the internet time lords know when or if I will get a response. I really need to get started on wordpress. Any help or info is appreciated.
If this forum is not broken, I have two suspicions. The host for the domain of the email address I am using is strong and popular for blog hosting:
But, Dreamhost does get blacklisted sometimes for porn sites hosted there I think. If I am getting blacklisted for being on a porn server, I need to know so I can request a different server. Also, I guess my user name could get blacklisted: "radicalism"
But I need to know if that is so.
If anyone has any info on this or who I can contact directly, please reply to this forum post.
If someone from wordpress could directly help get my login working, please contact me at my yahoo email address firstname.lastname@example.org for me to send you my password and email which I do not want to expose on the discussion board. Or maybe you can look up my username "radicalism" and fix it.
Also, even though I am successfully logged in with a yahoo email address, when I click on "View your profile", I get a BBPress error:
User not found.
I am beginning to move forward on serious plans for some wp2.6 blogs and switching from movabletype to WP. But, I cannot start till I can receive email notifications from this discussion board.
