How can users change their own passwords?
by Kirstie, posted on 10:45 AM, June 26, 2009
I would like to provide our members with the ability to change their password. We don’t want them to be able to change their username but if we can allow them to change their web site login password that would be great. What is involved in doing this?

    Create a page, and drop the Members plug-in into it. This should be a members-only page, of course; you can place it anywhere in your menus, or hide it and link to it explicitly from whereever you like.

    By default it lets the user update their name/email, or password, but you can limit it to one or the other of these functions if you like.

    To see an example of this plug-in in action, hit the login button at left when you are already logged in.

      Thank you Morgan, that was easy emoticon I have followed your instructions and all seems ok, I will have the client test and let you know if any problems arise.

      Thanks again, have a great weekend!
