Are User Accounts and passwords case-sensitive?
User Account names are not case-sensitive, but passwords are case-sensitive. Normally, your User Account name is your email address.
Can I sign-in with my email address?
I'm a new member. How do I create a FeedSweep widget?
Click on the Learn menu tab and start working with either the Basic or Advanced Designer.
Can I set up two or more User Accounts under the same email address?
No. Our system requires each user to have a unique email address and password in order to search our database for individually tailored information.
For this reason, you may not register more than one FeedSweep account under the same email address.
I see the error message, "Your address has already been taken", but this is my email address. Why is this happening?
You may have started a FeedSweep account on a previous visit, which means your email address and password are already on file. To retrieve your
password, click Forgot User Name or Password? below. You should then be able to sign in with the new credentials emailed to you.
I have been waiting for my email confirmation message to arrive but it has not shown up. What's next?
First off, make sure your email is not being blocked by your security protections. Please check your SPAM filter in your email reader and/or
your rejected/quarantined email message folders. Look for an email with the subject line: "FeedSweep Email Confirmation". Whitelist (or authorize)
the sender email address of "firstname.lastname@example.org" so that you may receive other important notifications from us in the future.
Then resend the confirmation email here.
