**Because of different algorithms used by the new software and the one-way nature of password encryption, your passwords were not transferred to the new system. You will need to reset your password from the login page.**

Here's a few things that will be new here:

- Fancy HTML WYSIWYG post editor -- when you start a thread or post a reply, you'll have a lot of formatting options available, and you'll be able to see their effects as you type.
- Better LaTeX editor for math equations -- For now it will work about the same. Enclose your latex commands within tex codes like so:[ tex]x^2[ /tex] (without the extra space before the word tex and /tex.). But, very soon there will be a built-in math editor for those unfamiliar with latex coding.
- Better spam proofing. The system will compare usernames, emails, and IP addresses to a worldwide, constantly updated black list.
- Friendlier interface for browsing the forums.
- Certain future add-ons I have planned and will implement one-by-one as we get rolling.

**If you are having trouble resetting your password -- obviously you won't be able to post about it here, so please email me directly at ted@freemathhelp.com.**

Thanks!
