help please Floyd

I would like to not have to get a new password everytime I click on a link to a response in a thread I'm watching. I don't understand the reason for this. I get a temp login, type my password twice, and respond to a msg. Then on the next automatic msg from the site. I click on a link, try to login with my email address [ which I don't wish to use anyway, I want to use ron45 or guitron45 if the first one is taken. I can find no place to change to a user name from my email address. This wouldn't be so bad if the site would accept my email address. Instead, after requesting a new password because the email address and password does not work each and every time I respond by clicking on a link to a reply in a thread I'm watching. I have to request another password and type it twice to answer a post from someone. Can you please offer some suggestions on a way around this when you have time Floyd?

Your screen name is ron. That should be all you need to login (and your password).

If you are going back to the temp password URL every time you visit then I'd guess you are resetting your password each time. Try just going to www.thefreshloaf.com and using the login block in the left nav.

Also, your browser must be accepting cookies to stay logged in.

I hope that helps.

Thank you Floyd. I was unaware that ron was the correct user name. I always use ron45 that way I don't have to keep track of different login needs at different. I have been trying ron45 and my email address. This should clear that up. Is there a place where I can change ron to ron45?. I haven't seen a way to do that on the page where I enter my password when I have to redo it. Thanks for taking the time to help.
