What does this have to do with seabythecity.com?
Well, you can finally reset your passwords again. Logging in, changing/resetting your password, changing your user name & changing your email address should now all work without a hitch.
Please keep in mind: I have absolutely no access to your passwords. They’re all stored on a wordpress server in a galaxy far, far away…

The issue: When trying to reset or recover your password with your USER NAME or EMAIL, the recovery email either never comes or takes forever to arrive.
The Fix: I’m really only posting this just in case other people in the wordpress world have this similar issue. Because to be honest, I searched and searched and searched and there is no place on the internet that explains this issue.
If you are using a host to serve a wordpress blog and your password reset doesn’t work or is too slow, try this:
In WORDPRESS/SETTINGS/GENERAL/ENTER: [ADMINISTRATOR EMAIL]: Don’t use an email that is forwarded to another email address. Use one that is hosted.
Just create a dummy email [example: firstname.lastname@example.org] with your host and serve it, don’t forward it. Enter this email @ WORDPRESS/SETTINGS/GENERAL/ENTER: [ADMINISTRATOR EMAIL]
This email is only used for site notifications and nothing else. It has nothing to do with your admin user name or contact forms (by default).
