Hi Kathy,

I actually received notice of the widgets website via a former student of mine... :)

Anyways, I tried to log in (using my regular Wolfram ID---using my email address as my username) and was unable to gain access. I also tried my username and PW from the Faculty forum, but that didn't work either. I did send an email to the web admin for the widgets site.

Are you aware of a workaround? I hesitate to generate another ID because I hate having multiple usernames and PW floating around...

Hi RG,

Actually, your existing Wolfram ID should work just fine. Keep in mind that some of the Wolfram web sites don't yet utilize the Wolfram ID system, so for example, your login for site.wolfram.com would not be the same as your Wolfram ID.

Here's the link to sign into the Wolfram|Alpha Widget Builder.
https://developer.wolframalpha.com/portal/signin.html

When you first sign in using your existing Wolfram ID, it will ask you to create a screen name for your account. Your screen name will be displayed in the public gallery when you publish a widget. You will be able to edit your screen name in the "My Profile" section of the Developer Portal.

Let me know if run into any other problems.
