    Haven't been here since Jan 2016 - but the site has changed in structure - I am now logged in in two ways - any way to find out what happened during the year with regard to the login?

    <<...I am now logged in in two ways...>>

    ...It would probably be helpful if you would explain this a bit more. Do you mean that you now have two user accounts (user names)? Something else?

    Ah.

    "...I haven't been here since January 2016-but when I logged in I had to put in a new password based on e-mail not my user namel - but when I went to the forums - my old user name is what I had to use to get into it. Is there somewhere that explains what happened in the last year ?.."

    I requested a password reset ... and I was able to get on that way.
    But I think the two logins are different, non ?

    yes @digital doctor & @Algusod as of the last forum update,There are two independent logins. I believe the front page uses the registered email address/p/w combo whereas the forum uses username/p/w combo

    Can the homepage login specifically say that somewhere to avoid confusion ?

    As well, when I tried to register on the homepage ... it said that email was already in use. Can that problem be avoided as well ?

    If the homepage is Wordpress, there is a good Xenforo addon XenWord.
    it does login integration quite well.

    You shouldn't need to re-register, I believe you'd use the same email address you signed up with for the forum with the password you use for the forum. From there you can change the First Name Last Name from the default Windows user etc.

    I will pass the suggestion on to the site administrators/owners.
