unable to change to secure password

My desktop PC crashed and i'm trying to get in forum with laptop. Since i don't have the new forum pwd in laptop, i tried to reset my forum pwd. Got new pwd emailed to me instantly, but it DOES NOT WORK!

"Wrong username and/or password. Forgotten your password?"

Wait, then i see the email also says
To change your password, please visit the following page:
http://loohanforum.orgoneitalia.it/prof … y=WiJJwANP
so i click on that and am told i can log in now, as pwd has changed. So i do log in and get home page. But now i can't find way to change pwd. The only pwd i have is the one that the CIA, NSA also have because it came in gmail.

Re: unable to change to secure password

the new psw you received on email doesn't work until you click on the link on the email
this is because either way someone could click on reset password for loohan and get your account blocked.
this way the confirmation of reset comes to a link in your email, so only who have access to the email can reset it.

however they can still read your password by sniffing it by email or by the login.
I've tried a solution with the SSL certificate but it only works on the main domain. unless we start to use a different url such has orgoneitalia.it/loohanforum instead of loohanforum.orgoneitalia.it

Re: unable to change to secure password

Maybe we need to do that, if that's the only way to keep pwds secret. Otherwise any agent can just log in and post spam.
