    How do I change my password here? I accidentally tried to log in to a website using the dot com version of wordpress which seems to be designed by a phisher, and gave the guy my Word Press dot org password :<

    You can't change your password here. And frankly, I went to the .COM address and don't see what you are talking about.

    did you guys not see a website at wordpress.com that was talking about 'the new wordpress' and to log on etc etc..and that looks sort of like what an updated version of word press might look like?

    I went to wordpress.com and saw the post about the release of the new wordpress, certainly. I saw no login form there except for the form that is for the users of wordpress.com.

    The link that is provided at the bottom of the post is directed to the download page here at wordpress.org.

    I would think that you have nothing to worry about. ...

    I see a blog running what would appear to be an alpha of WordPress 1.5, using the default theme. They have download links to wordpress.org, and an article or two about WordPress 1.5.

    If you tried to log on to someone else's blog, you will presumably have got an "invalid password" or some such message.

    Hi Ibessant,

    I guess I am way more concerned about this than I should be :> I was just thinking about what happened to phpbb recently....

    bbPress has been updated. You can now change your forum password and more when viewing your profile.

  9. Frank, the guy who runs WordPress.com is a special story. You can read about him here:

    Long story short, he bought that domain name and wanted to give it to the WP developers, but they have refused his charity for their own reasons. He also promised to donate $1,000 if v1.5 was released by valentine's day. Technically, it was, but I haven't heard anything about any $1,000 donations yet. Basically, his blog displays a login link just like any other WordPress blog. And that login link is intended for the owner of the site to login, nothing more. Your password is safe. But, as Ming mentioned, you can change it now.
