View Full Version : changing wp password

02-23-2016, 04:20 PM
I've been trying to change my WP password. I go the the profile page, but it doesn't show the password or the boxes to change it. I am an admin. Anybody have any suggestions?

BTW, I can sign in because my computer remembers the password.

Newer versions don't have the 2 fields anymore in your profile. It's under the header Account Management-> New Password->Generate Password. It will generate a new password for you. If you want to use your own and it's seen as insecure, you have to check a box that says you want to use the insecure password.

Thanks Harold. I'll give it a shot a little later.
