Editing profile on phpbb.com

Post by justjames »

I tried to update my email address associated with my profile. I entered the new email address twice and entered my current password. I clicked submit and I get a "email addresses do not match" error even though I entered it correctly several times.

Any help appreciated. Thanks

Are you sure that they were the same and you did not have a space at one end or some other character in the address. I would try entering the new address and then doing a copy/paste into the confirm box.

I have just tried doing it on my test site and had no problems. It may be (or should I say almost certain) that phpbb.com is using a later version (CVS) than beta 5 and a new bug may have crept in.

I did the copy/paste thing as well earlier and it didn't work. Thanks

Have you tried it on any other site - such as Area51?

Do you have any "unusual" characters in your email address?

It may be an idea to post it in the bug tracker if you can reproduce it.

I would report this to the bug tracker, just tried myself, and got the same error, again I did the copy and paste, and my password was correct too, so you better report this
