There was a bug in the code for email registration. We used to use case insensitive passwords, but I changed the code to use case sensitive passwords. For the email registration script, the conversion was incomplete. It was still converting passwords to lowercase, which it should no longer do. So here is what might have happened. You chose a mixed case or upper case password, and when you entered it, it didn't accept it, because it had been converted into a lowercase password, and passwords are now case-sensitive.

If you check the email it sent you, you should find your password all in lowercase. Enter this as your password instead of what you originally gave as your password, and you should be able to log in. Checking the database, I see you already have two accounts with us: johnnyluken and jhildluke.

In case this does not work, there is also a script for changing your password.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
