How can I reset my password?

Passwords can be reset using the following steps:

1. visit the log in page for your website. The address will be for example education.gsu.edu/wp-admin

2. Click the "I forgot my password" button

3. Enter your email address that you assigned to your account.

You will receive a email confirmation from WordPress with a link to reset your password. Alternatively, if you are having issues with resetting your password, you can ask the Administrator for your website to manually reset your password.

In some cases (such as Editors and and Local Administrators) you can manually change your own password.

To change your own password:
1. Log in your WordPress Account
2. On your dashboard, click "Users" > Your Profile
3. Type in the new password that you want for this account. Click "update". 

To manually reset another user's password (you must be a network Administrator in order to do this)

1. Log in your WordPress Account
2. On your dashboard, click "All Users"



3. Choose the username that you want to change and click "edit"

4. Change the Account Authentication type from an LDAP account to a Local Account and click "update".

5. Type in the new password that you want for this account. Click "update".
