    cant change password or e-mail

    when i go to edit password i get an error saying that the entered password does not match what is on record.... the only 2 boxes there are for new password

    same goes if i only want to change my email

    The password you have entered does not match your current one. Please press the back button, enter the correct details and try again. Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Click here!
    funny thing i can login fine...

    I've had the same issue for over a month - I just use the reset password now to login. Someday I'm sure they'll fix it and then I can set it to a password I can actually remember.

    Edit:
    After seeing in a thread from February that old accounts have this issue with the updated forum, hiding the current password field, I used the FireBug plugin in FireFox to make the current password field visible again.

    I changed:
    <input id="currentpassword" type="hidden" name="currentpassword">

    to:
    <input id="currentpassword" type="textbox" name="currentpassword">

    This will add a textbox directly under "Edit Email & Password" where you can enter your old password. This won't say "current password" or anything, but it is the quickest and simplest way to get the old password field visible so it can be used for a password change.

    I also have this same issue. Is it possible to fix it on the forum side?
