The forum runs on separate website on different software, and it’s not directly linked with the main Members Area (yet… I’m working on that!). Therefore you’ll need to create an account separately.
To create an account, visit http://www.lightroomforums.net/login/login
The forum uses a username (for anonymity). You’re welcome to set the same password on both systems. If you lose your forum username or password, click here to reset it.
Once you’ve created your forum account, click the activation link in the confirmation email, then sign in using the login form in the top right corner of the forum website.
