|Elon faculty, students and staff with an Elon password should use [Elon's Self-Service Password Maintenance site|https://www.elon.edu/smop/] to reset their password.|
|h3. Other users|
Non-Elon users can reset their password directly on blogs.elon.edu. On the login screen, click on “Lost your password?” to get started.
|h4. Related issue|
The "Invalid username" error means that user doesn't have a blog account. Students should contact their professor and ask them to add the student to the blog. Others should contact the blog administrator.

|If you use an Elon email address to access a blog hosted at blogs.elon.edu and haven't logged in since July 5, you’ll need to create a new password before you can access your blogs. Until now, you’ve been able to use your Elon password. The recent transition of blogs to a cloud solution has made that no longer possible. A new, unique password will be required to log into blogs.elon.edu.|
|*IMPORTANT:* This will not change your password for other Elon services, like email or Ontrack. This password will only be for blogs hosted at blogs.elon.edu.|
