A Mac user, Set up my initial registration via Safari but have since switched to using Chrome for my internet use. For some reason I cannot log in to the forum via Chrome.? Keeps telling me invalid user name or password.

What am i doing wrong?? What do I need to do. Any ideas would be most appreciated.

Cheers,
Mr M.

When you log in through Safari, are you manually typing in your password or are you letting the browser autofill it for you? If you are letting the browser autofill the password, go into Safari Preferences and see what the password actually is. There is no reason why the username and password would be different in Chrome versus Safari. IF you are getting that message then there is something different with either your username or password.

I see that you appear to have a space in your username based on the profile section to the left of your post. Spaces aren't usually allowed in usernames and passwords so you are probably using a null character. Those may translate differently in different browsers depending on what character set is loaded. If you have a null character or an ascii space in either your username or password then get rid of those and try again.

@Mr M Are you still having this issue? If you are, you can send a PM to this account with the password you'd like to use and I'll manually update it on your account just to make sure the correct one is added.

GapRunr, I did not know about that little spacing detail when I first signed up? I'd modify my user name but someone already has the Mr M with no spacing.
If I have to change my user name will I lose my old history? Or should i just make an Alias up incorporating MrM??
Confusion much!

You can contact the Administrators of this web site and ask them to change your username. They don't often do this, but given the issue you are having they can help you. It will change your username on all your historic posts I believe, so technically you wouldn't lose anything.

Yup, that is correct.
If you need your username changed, PM us.
