Makes sense to me, and on one of my boards it is just so. I hadn't noticed/remembered as it was never a problem.
However on another board, more recently installed on another site, same host,
I have this when I click on the login link. Maybe it's going to a different file to login?
The ok one ishttp://soapbox.rogerlovejoy.net/ucp.php?mode=login
the other http://plymouthenvironmentcentre.org.uk ... mode=login
I wouldn't have thought a style change would do that??
OK I can get to the [Send Password] option by suffixing the URL with 'sendpassword' instead of login but sadly to no avail as it's not recognising my user name and email combination.
Check the database via phpmyadmin and it seems a bit weird there,(not showing user names, just the variable type?) but that doesn't explain the different login screens.
