I just signed up for Nerdica, and I'm fairly new to the Fediverse. I'm trying to change my password from the default one sent to me, and it refuses to change. Under my "Account Settings", I enter my current password (the one sent to me by email), and a new password with confirmation.

When I click "Save Settings", two notifications appear, one saying "Login failed" and another with "Password unchanged".

Any idea why I can't change my password?

I just tried signing up for another Friendica instance. That instance had also just upgraded to 2019.03-rc. I had the exact same problem there.

So, I think this could be a bug introduced by the upgrade. I'm going to try and find an instance on the previous version.

I fixed it. It had nothing to do with the theme, or the version of Friendica.

TBH, I don't really know what the problem was, but when I requested a password reset, that worked. Then, after logging in with the new password, I was able to change my password to whatever I wanted after that.
