Alas and alack, WordPress no longer recognizes my username – the same username I’ve had since I opened my account back in 2008.
My pain is thus: On Tuesday of last week I was able to log in to my dashboard as usual – with my 5-year-old username and my regular password. Then suddenly, the next day, my log on abilities were cruelly and inexplicably taken from me. I reset my password and again attempted to log in, but to no avail. I then turned to the “Account Recovery” form -- only to be told upon completion and attempted submission of the form that WordPress does not recognize my username. I assume this is because the form is designed to aid only WordPress.com users.
My site, symbolwatcher.com, is up and appears to working properly. I am able to log in to my cpanel with no problems. But somehow WordPress has lost its way with me.
Do I carry the onus for reactivating my username even though said username was WordPress-assigned and has been unchanged by me? Is WordPress-assisted account recovery only available to WordPress.com users? Can no actual bona fide WordPress personnel assist me?
