Please note that it matters whether a letter in the Name or Password is capitalized or not, that is the problem people usually come across.

You can change your password, and also tell your Computer to remember it for a year so that you don't have to log in all the time (except in Live Chat area).

You may change your password at any time by clicking on the profile link near the top of any Forum page and logging in with the old password. If you have misplaced the password that was sent to you there is a way to have it sent to you again through the missing password link on the Forum pages or the following link: (make sure your email address listed is still valid so that you can get it !!!) http://electrical-contractor.net/cgi-bin/Ultimate.cgi?action=lostpw

To have your Computer remember your password so that you don't have to log in every time you must have 'cookies' enabled in your Browser settings. (It should be by default) You can set it to remember by going to the "preferences' link near the top of Forum pages - or by clicking here >> http://electrical-contractor.net/cgi-bin/ubbmisc.cgi?action=setprefs

If anyone else has any tips to add that would help with common log-in problems, or using the Forum please add them here.

Another problem can be hitting the space bar after typing in your username or password, although it looks the same the space is recognized.

Roger that is a good point, I have had the 'space' problem before.

Sometimes I cut and paste the password, if you highlight to much you include a 'space' that the software sees and I do not get in.

I often have my broser choose the wrong user name from a list. Some of which are mistakes, say with a space... Big PITA! I go to post, and "Sorry, no known user by that name" or something to that effect. then go back to correct it, and the content of post is gone.

Anyone know how to remove user names from that list?

In some forms while the list is displayed you can use the delete key to get ride of the wrong one by highlighting it but not moving it into the box.

Hope I expalained that OK.

Ahhhh, thats nice! As simple as the delete key. With a tendance to over-think, I never would have thought about that.

It took me a while of searching the help files before I knew the delete key was it.

How about the "Any other" key?

A related problem on caps/lower case is that some servers are case-sensitive on a URL.

For example, if you try to link an image into a post from such a server using "IMAGE.jpg" and the site has it as "IMAGE.JPG", then it won't work.
