When you receive the password reset email,   if the link is not clickable, then  highlight the link text,  include the  HTTP  and all the  random looking letters,  copy  (CTRL +C  or Right Click -Copy)  then paste into the address bar at the top of your web browser. 

If you reset your password using Internet Explorer, you may see an error message after typing in the new passwords,   but the new password will be stored.  close the browser then re-log into  https://thebigword.ims.direct/.

Never allow the browser to store the password for either web portal, always type it in.

 Add the https://thebigword.ims.direct/ link to your browser favourites. 

Troubleshooting

If the password reset link  does not appear as a link (some email programs  remove links),
copy the link to the clipboard,  highlight all of the link text, to include the HTTP and all the letters of the code (it may be two lines), then paste that into the address bar at the top of the web browser (not into a Google search box).

If you need to switch from one system to the other, ensure that you either log off first, or close the browser completely, or use separate browsers for each system.

In order to stop the system requesting password resets each time, please could you try the following:

1.  Clear cache (full cache, not just previous week or month).

2.  Delete saved password for thebigword.ims.direct.

Once done, please restart your browser and then try login again with the latest created password.

Never allow the browser to store the password for either web portal, always type it in.

Please do not use A Google search to find the web page as it may return a different portal address.
