How can I change my password?

I've gone to edit profile but there is nowhere to reset or change my password. Come to that, nowhere to change my email either.

Anyone?

    Hi @MisterBoy - if you click on your avatar, it brings up a page with a little purple 'person' icon. There's a drop down menu which includes editing your profile  :)

    @MisterBoy To change your password or any other personal details you have to go into the main gardeners world site. At the top of the pages on this (forum) site is a black banner, tap the Gardeners World logo on the left hand side of this banner and it will take you to the main site. At the top of that page is another black banner with "my account" on the right hand side,  tap on "my account " and you can change them there.
    Hope this helps.

    Same process @Pauline 7 - takes you to the same page  :)
    I'm not sure if you can change the email though. You might have to contact the mods, or rejoin using a different e mail address. I've never done it, so not sure.

    You sometimes have to log out and back in again too.

    @Fairygirl I'm on my tablet and clicking on my avatar allows me to edit my profile but doesn't let me change my personal details.... email address etc. 
    It might just be a tablet issue......or me.

    I think the email is the different thing @Pauline 7 - I've heard people having a problem with that before. I looked too  [laptop] and no facility for it. 
    Phones seem to be more limited as to access too, for some weird reason! Unless they've fixed that now  :D

    @Fairygirl....... How strange. I can change all my details  on the main site, but others can't.  Weird. But   hey hoe stranger things happen all the time.

    You can change all of your personal details by clicking on the Gardeners world .com then my account on the right, then select ‘settings’
    Then choose ‘personal details’ everything is there. Make sure you click save afterwards.
