 Frequently Asked Questions

What is the WordPress Profile page for ?

The WordPress Profile page simply records that you have been set up as a User of the website, as a member of the NCS.  Your rights as a User are controlled by the website administrator, who sets access facilities for you, but not facilities to edit the website etc., and you cannot have those facilities changed without contacting the website administrator.

The sections of the Profile dealing with Name and Contact Information should not be changed, and no biographical information from the About Yourself section is required or used.  However, the About Yourself section does include the facility for you to change your Password, which you are welcome to do – see separate FAQ.

How do I change my password ?

After you have logged in with your initial temporary Password, Go To your Profile page as described above under What is the WordPress Profile page for ?

In the bottom section of your Profile, called About Yourself, you will see two fields called New Password and Repeat New Password.  If you wish to change your password, enter your new password in both those fields and then click the Update Profile button.  Your access Password will then be changed to the new Password that you have chosen and entered.
