  1. Someone hacked into my wordpress account about 3 years ago, and changed my website, and I haven't been able to get into my account or change the password and would like to keep the same e-mail address. Any suggestions? I can open a new account with a totally different e-mail address, but I'd prefer not to do that as I rarely use that account

  2. As I type a password it says "your password can be saved" but there is no "save password" button. Same happen by following the above procedure. This is damn stupid. Do you guys in WordPress test the web site you release? Also I don't see a link for reporting issues.
