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.
 
_What? - This seems like a step backwards. I have enough passwords to remember._ We agree. Having a separate password for blogs is not ideal.This is only a temporary workaround until we can relink our blog accounts with Elon passwords. An announcement will be made when this is reactivated.
