    How do I change the password on my Mac-Forums account. Sadly, Mac-Forums rates = to HP in lacking obviousness!

    link at the top of every page, UserCP = User Control Panel

    It will be exactly the same place as every forum using any current version of the vBulletin forum software.

    Thanks. I'd spent about 25 minutes looking around and clicking things but obviously missed that one!

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    The menu item does have the word "User" in it. What else on the top menu refers to the user? Yes, the top menu is easy to miss for most new forum members but expanding "User CP" to "User Control Panel" won't make much difference.
