In order to logout select Logout in the User Menu block.

logout
Logout Menu Item


You will see a brief message saying "You are now logged out Thank you for your visit to our site!" and you are logged out.

There are several reasons why you may want to logout.

First of all, if you are on a public computer you definitely want to logout when you leave the computer so no one else can access the site and impersonate you.

Even if you are using your own computer where no one else has access you still may want to logout once you are off the site in order to signal to other users that you are not online anymore. The web site is tracking all the logged in users and it shows a list with these users and also for all these users puts the Online label under the user name in form postings and comments.

When you are logged in instead of a Login block you should see a User Menu block.

Click on the Lost Password? link in the Login block, in the next page use the Lost your Password? section.

Type in your email address and click Send Password.


lostPasswordForm
Lost Password Form


The system will generate a new temporary password for you and email it to you.

If you don't know the email address that you used when you registered on the site then try all your email addresses. The system will give you brief error message like "Sorry, no corresponding user info was found." and your browser will return to the same page where you can try another email address.

As soon as you receive this temporary password please login and update your profile by choosing another permanent password. Since the temporary password was sent through email it is not secure, this is why you should change it as soon as possible.

It is not possible to retrieve your existing password, not even by the system administrator, this is the reason why a temporary password is generated.

In the Login block type your user name and your password and click on the User Login button.


loginBlock
Login Block


You will see a brief message saying "Thank you for logging in, ..." and then you are forwarded to the page you where before.

If you try to access a section of the site available only to registered users and you are not logged in then you will be presented with the login page. After you login you will be forwarded to the page you were trying to reach.

First of all you have to make sure that you completed the registration. If did not click the Finish button in the second step of the registration process then the registration did not take place and you will not get an account activation email. Please go back and register again.

If you are sure that you completed you registration then you may want to wait a bit longer for the email. Sometimes it takes quite a while (several hours) for an email to reach its destination. It all depends on the current network conditions and where exactly the source and destination computers are.

If you still don't receive the activation email by next day then most likely you did not type in a proper email address or the message did not reach you for some other reason (your mailbox was full, one of the mail servers falsely identified the message as spam, etc.). Do not register again, try to contact the web master or one of the moderators and ask for help. Tell them the exact user name and email address you have user. Don't send them your password.
