To login to your online forum account, navigate to the forum's homepage and click the Login button in the top menu-bar. Next, type in the username and password you provided when you registered and click the Login button below the password box.

Note: If you created the forum that you are logging into, your username will always be admin.

After creating a free forum, or registering for an account at an existing forum, an activation key will be emailed to you. When logging in for the first time you will be asked to provide your activation key we sent to your email. This key is only required the first time you log in.

If the login attempt fails and you get an error message, it's possible the username/password you provided does not match our records. If you forgot your username or password, click on the Forgot Your Password? link to the right of the login box. On the Forgot Password page, type in your username or the email address you used when creating your forum account. Your account details will then be sent to your email.

Note: If you change your display name on the modify profile page, please continue to use your original username to login your free forum account.
