How can we help when you have not followed the posting check list.

post checklist?

yes the HUGE text at the top when you post a message

1. You must give the (myfree/myfast/myfine) link to your forum. A link should be given to the problem if at all possible. Do this whether you think it is important or not.
2. Search on the forum and on howtodoit for your problem before posting. 90% of the posts we get have easily found answers if you search on a couple of key words from your post. If this is not the case report the keywords you searched on and we will make sure search works for the next person to try the same search terms. Each time someone doesn't bother to use the search, questions accumulate in the forum making it harder for people to actually find answers! as people searching will end up finding the question and not the answer.
3. Keep it to one support question per thread, if you have another question start a new topic. This will help others using "search" to find answers.

sorry about that

EDITED by Symon to make link work

You are logged in as admin right now on your forum, so have you entered all the details properly.

Have you even gone to the correct log in page;task=loginforum&Itemid=27

And to note no one had hacked your forum someone may have guessed you password or you have a rouge admin.

it's the actual forum password(for the control panel) i need as some one got into my email address and has changed it

ive not had any problems logging into the forum and admin panel.

and i dont have any other admin as yet on the forum
myff admin

Can you supply the original email address and password to admin [at]

But what actually happened? you must have given someone the password for this to occur? The owner control panel is there to protect you from rogue admins but it cannot protect you if you let it be accessed by others.

In this type of case you need to contact Admin with the original email used to set up the forum, and original password.

i know it is the control panel that's why i posted the link to your control panel.

Are you sure you have entered it correctly

edit by admin: never post such stuff publically
myff admin

You still need to explain for everyones benefit what happened. You were NOT hacked you did something wrong, letting others know helps educate people into avoiding this happening.

basically some ones accessed my email address and then requested password to my control panel and then changed all my passwords.

i have changed my email address password now. Forum Index -> My Fried Forum
