General: How do I change my password?

26.2 Website Administrators CANNOT tell you what your exisiting password is. Why? because we don’t know what it is!

Passwords are stored in an encrypted format in the database and the only way to regain access to the site after forgetting your password is to have it reset to a new one and then change it yourself to one you want to use.

It’s good practice to change your password every so often. The password you choose can make it easy or hard for malicious people to gain access to your website account.

Choosing your Password

Why not do a google seach on how to choose a password ?

To change your 26.2 website password, follow these links:
  • Log in
  • Submit Your Content
  • Edit My Details

You’ll then be on your Profile Edit Page. At the top in the centre there’s some little grey boxes, one with Edit on it. Click on:

  • Edit
  • Edit Your Profile
You’ll then be on the data entry page of your Profile. You’ll see a field labelled “Password” and a field named “Verify Password”.

Enter your new password into both boxes.

It must be at least 6 characters long and can be and combination of the characters a-z, A-Z or 0-9
