A new member trying to sign up gets a Ning error message rejecting the inputted password, even though the person has never even registered for the new site!
What’s happening is that Ning recognizes the user’s email from when that person joined another Ning site at a time in the past, and now Ning expects the same password previously associated with that email.
When new members can’t remember their old passwords, trouble begins, because every attempt to reset it will be unsuccessful. Registration hasn’t been completed, therefore the new site will be unable to reset the password. Catch-22!
How to Deal with the Ning Problem
Here are four ways to deal with the Ning glitch:
- Try very hard to remember or figure out your old password. You’ll be able to change it later.
- Try to register with an email address you’ve never ever used before on Ning.
- Reset your password at the Ning site. After resetting your password, ignore Ning’s invitation to set up a new site, and go directly to register for the site where you encountered the problem. Reset Your Ning Password ACCEPTED SOLUTION
- Wait who knows how long for Ning to fix the problem.
