    Go ahead and click the admin 'login' without your password. The next screen has a link for forgotten passwords.

        If you are an admin you should have an admin link in the footer. Otherwise link to yourdomain/forum/admincp/index.php if you used the usual directory names.

            What is the URL to your board? Take that and substitute the information I gave you above. Post the URL to your main board and someone will help you with the link as I have to leave now.

              If you have forgotten your password, you can ask the board software to email it to you.

                    You mean a password to a specific FORUM as opposed to your USER password?

                          Freezerator is correct. I wasn't aware that you could have a different ADMIN CP password. I thought your user password also applied to your Admin CP (someone correct me if I'm wrong here, or let me know how to use this feature).

                          TIA.

                              Most board owners use the same user name and password to access the board and to access the administrative control panel. If you used a different name for administrator, go to the control panel using the link you have above. I just tested it and it takes you to the admin login page. Then enter your regular username and password. If that is not right, it takes you to a page that explains you have used the wrong info. In that paragraph is a link called 'here'. Click that and follow the prompts.

                              Are you possibly talking about the 'Member' area?
