This has happened like five times now -.-'

When I change my profile information on HowToGeek's forums and try to post afterwards it tells me that i have to "login to post".
This is strange, because at the top of the page (next to the categories) it still says "My Profile" and "Logout".

So I click "Login" on the "Login to post" and enter username and password and it tells my that my password is incorrect... -.-'
I think "Aw, man. Not again" and click the recover password, go through the process and everything works fine until next time I click edit profile.

Also, the change password box is a bit tricky.
Am I supposed to enter my new password twice, or should I enter my old one in the top box and my new on the bottom box?

PS. Don't know what topic this is, so I put it under "Site Suggestions"... Maybe you could add a new topic: "Forum Questions"

EDIT: Gaah, my Dropbox images won't show up most of the time sometimes? Why? Oh well, I'll just add a link...
EDIT 2: Does it really matter in which forum this is, I always just look at the forums main page... It is more convenient.

Eric, there does seem to be a few probs with login after updating your profile. You should get a new PW on request to your registered email address. If that address has been changed then contact any mod and a new one will be issued and you can change when successfully logged in.

The recovery works fine, just wanted to inform you guy and check if I was the only one having that problem. Don't worry about it though.

Also I would like a suggest someone making a HowToGeek howto on imaging (whs would love that xD)... it is very useful if something bad happens to your computer.

Had similar problems which never got sorted and had to re-register, hence the 2. Best not to change your password or email address.
