Can't change forum password

Hi

I've forgotten my password.. because memory, so I requested a password reset, and I got the link and am logged in. So far so everything works as expected.

However, I can't actually change my password from the temporary one, because it keeps asking for my existing password, and the email never mentioned it; I just got the link.

So, either I need to be told the temp password in the email OR once I'm logged in on the temp password, I need to be able to change my password without having to provide my previous one ;/

Until then, I'll be requesting a password reset every time my cookies expire or I use a different PC to login.

Thanks for your time

I've tried the same process

I've tried the same process now on another device and it worked as expected. I think it failed the first time because I tried to do multiple profile updates at the same time as my password (because I could) and it failed, asking for my old password. Thereafter it had cached that I needed to supply my old password even after I reset it a 2nd time, and therefore kept asking for one. Anyway, I'm sorted now.

I'm in that same boat ATM. Been out the loop for a while now but I'm happy to be back catching up on 7 months of goodness!
