Troubleshooting Guide

Software is not always our friend. If you have having issues, we hope these quick solutions will help. If the problem you are having isn’t listed below please contact us at info@uuinstitute.org or submit a support ticket and we’ll work with you to figure it out.

I did not get my confirmation email after registering, so I cannot log into the site.

Occasionally these emails get caught in spam folders on your server or in your inbox. If you can’t find the email then please email info@uuinstitute.org and one of us will confirm your account right away. We do check for “stuck” accounts regularly but if you email us we’ll take care of it right away.

I click the link in my confirmation email and it says I need an activation key.

That means you accidentally clicked the link twice and your account is already activated. Just login using the user name and password you set up when you registered for the site. If you can’t log in then let us know at info@uuinstitute.org

I am trying to log in but it doesn’t recognize my user name.

The system does not recognize spaces in the user names. If you put in “Beth Casebolt” it will turn that into “BethCasebolt”. So try removing the space between your names or two words first. The system does this automatically, it does not tell you it is happening. Also, if you can’t remember your user name, you can always login using your email address associated with the account. If these two fixes don’t help please email info@uuinstitute.org and one of us will check your account and tell you your user name. Note that we cannot see passwords. Do note that while you can change your email address associated with the account, you cannot change the user name once it is set.

I’ve lost my password, how do I reset it?

Click the login link in the menu bar. Under the boxes for user name and password there is a link for register and forgot password? Click the forgot password and follow the instructions. If you do not get the reset password email or are unable to find the link, email info@uuinstitute.org for help. We can’t see your password, so all we can do is reset it.

When one video presentation ends, another one — that isn’t part of the class–starts to play.

YouTube has added an “autoplay” feature that causes this problem.  Find out how to turn it off.

I tried to take the quiz but when I get to the end it just spins and doesn’t give me a score. When I log out and back in it says I didn’t take it.
