    My WP was set up years ago with ckielich@yahoo.com as my e-mail address. It was hacked and all of the mail was sent to my new address kielichcv@goddessesgotogreece.com I forgot my password and cannot get a new one because it keeps getting sent to the wrong/hyacked yahoo e-mail ...can anyone help me? My site is http://www.goddessesgotogreece.com and my username is admin...there is no working password at this time. If someone can fix this for me and get me a new password I would appreciate it.

    Try the steps here: Resetting_Your_Password

    Also, if you were hacked, you'll need to make sure your site is completely clean to avoid future problems. Start here: FAQ_My_site_was_hacked

    When you do get back in to WordPress, consider changing your username from admin - keeping the default is an invitation to hackers. As is posting the username and your email address, with your url, on forums like this. See this page for details on how to make your site more secure: Hardening_WordPress
