Board - change email address?

Post by satnipper » 20 Mar 2018 17:48

Is it possible to change the email address? Or does a new user have to be created?

Profile > Edit profile > Edit account settings > Then simply change the email address and provide your current password. Click Submit (not Reset).

Out of curiosity I just checked that John and I don't see any option to change the email address?

You can not edit the email address - hence my question.

Interesting. In that case I suspect it only possible for admins and mods.

I will look into this.

No. It *should* be possible. Why it isn't is beyond me. I can't find anything in the ACP which will allow me to enable or disable this, so I am mystified. I will contact the phpBB Community. Hopefully the solution will follow shortly.

It would have taken me ages to find that particular ACP setting, it's buried deep within hundreds of other settings. There are Forum Permissions, Group Forum Permissions, Group Permissions, User Forum Permissions, Group Forum Permissions, etc. (I kid you not!) All very confusing, so many thanks to the phpBB Community for assistance. You should now be able to change your email addresses.

Yes changed but you need admin permission to log back in again after changing.
