The plan is to move many of the How To's and Tutorials for website stuff over here from the forum, but for the time being you can visit the old section for many forum-specific help topics.
Troubling logging in? Need to change the email address on your account? Here's a list of common tasks or issues:
Begin by logging into your account. Click on the main menu item "ME." Your public profile will appear with a menu near the top. Hover over (or tap once on tablet) the "Profile" menu until you see the submenu appear. Select "Edit profile."
Once the profile form appears, you'll need to click on Account Details to reveal the email address and password fields. Change them as needed, then click Save.
For security reasons, we can't actually send you your password. In fact, passwords are not even stored in a readble way in the database. Your only option, should you forget your password, is to reset it. Start by visiting the Lost Password page.
Once there, enter your email address. You'll be emailed a temporary password, which you should immediately change upon logging in again.
I've been getting reports of this issue lately. The easy solution is to just delete all backcountrypilot.org cookies and re-login. Just now I deleted all sessions on the server, so people may have to log back in anyway.
Viewing the forum does not require one to be logged in, but if the server detects a BCP cookie, it tries to process it to recover your session (automatically log you in.) It will redirect you to the login page if it can;t process the cookie, but once back on the login page, it sees that cookie again thinking it's valid and redirects you again and... infinite loop. Most browsers catch this so they don't crash.
