I am trying to log-in to the CMS admin and I forgot my password. I've clicked the I've lost my password link in the login screen and have not received an e-mail with a link to change my password.

I came here and attempted to login and had to request a new password. I received the e-mail, changed my password, but it does not apply to logging into the CMS admin.

What do I do?

Adding this line to the mysite/_config.php file will let you set a username and password that will let you in to the CMS.


If you plan on leaving that line of code in there after you've got back into the CMS, then I of course recommend a much stronger password.
