I don't know how to change user name and password. It requires create account by another user name. So, we can not change user name?

If you are wiki administrator you can install Extension:Renameuser. If not - ask admin to install it or is already installed - ask person with permission to use it.

How I can get the position of a highlighted text to clic it later.

Reply to "Getting position of a text" (talkcontribs)

I know my username, but had not logged in for a long time. I discovered that the password was not what I remembered, so I asked to set a new one. A temporary password has been sent to the associated email account - but that email account has been dormant so long it seems I no longer have access to that either. Is there any other path I could take to regain access to my wikipedia account?

It seems that there are wikis using this software who require login in order to discuss, comment, ask for info or make suggestions. Maybe you should re-word this page. Ragityman (talk) 00:51, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

This page is protected, so I cannot correct it. Can an admin please correct grammar in "Another possibility is that you have landed on this page from a private wiki some other method is used to manage accounts. If that is the case contact your system administrator to see what the processes is to setup or access your account."

I created a .zip file and upload it on FTP Server then download it from FTP Server and c# code.

But I am not able to unzip this file using WinRAR it always show (no achiever found) The achiever is either unknown format or damaged.

No active login attempt is in progress for your session.

When I try to log in with correct password wikipedia gives me message "No active login attempt is in progress for your session." In case I tried with wrong password then wikipedia gives me "wrong password" message. In any case it is not allowing me to log in. Please tell me why? Kindly post reply on my user talk page instead if possible as my IP is dynamic and I might not get same IP address again.

I'm trying to log in but am told my user name is already chosen.  This is MY account and MY user name.  I enter my password to show that I am me but I still cannot log in.

Wargo (talkcontribs)

If it say your username is chosen you are trying to login using... register form.

since i might have gotten hacked, i need a new account.

Ragityman (talkcontribs)

Go to your userpage. You should still be able to edit it, even if you can't log in. Type out a description of your problem, and then append {help me}. This should attract attention from an administrator who can help.

The problem with leaving a message here is that it might be awhile before anyone sees it. I only saw it by chance, and I am not an admin. Sorry. Good luck. ~~~~

Ragityman (talkcontribs)

I told you wrong. Only slightly wrong, but it wouldn't work. Type "helpme" as one word, no quotation marks, and enclose in '''double''' braces, {{ }}. You need to do this on YOUR userpage. Also, I would have left this message on your userpage, but you didn't sign your message. I don't know who you are. If you have an account, always sign your posts, and people can more easily help you. I won't leave messages on an IP userpage: they are less than useless, a waste of time. No one except me ever sees them.

How do I remove LDS info from all individuals? I don't use LDS.

I don't know if this is appropriate to add to this page, but I thought that it might help someone.

Like many users, I'm sure, I have an email just for my wiki username. User:Ragityman. Simple enough, right? So, I'm trying out a new browser, and I can't log in. I begin to get frustrated, I'm typing my password very carefully, double checking each character as I type. Won't work. Go to settings. Start changing things. Javascript. Cookies. Anything that's caused trouble in the past. Norhing helps. "Incorrect password, please try again." But it wasn't my password.

On some websites my "username" is my email address. NOT on Wikipedia. I had habitually typed w/username in the "USER" field, and that won't work.

Now some of you are young and bright and will never make that error. At least not for a few more decades. But we have an aging population, and I'll bet I'm not the only one to make this mistake. Just sayin' ... ~~~~
