This module will allow users who are logged in to easily change their password. This module will eliminate all the unnecessary steps a user has to go through before they can change their password on their profile page.
Define the minimum length you want for your password. If the defined length is shorter than the DNN settings, the DNN setting will be used. By default the password length is 8 characters.
Select the placement of the labels for the textboxes (above or left). Default is above.
Show password strength meter:
Check this option if you want a password strength meter to be displayed under the “Change password” button. This feature is turned off by default.
Old password input field?
PassChanger does not require the old password to be entered in order to change it. This is usually the case in other systems. But the DNN password retrieval function does not work anymore since version 6.x (or something like that) so you can never compare the inputted old password against the one stored in the database.
Not logged in
To change a password, the user has to be logged in on the website. If the module is placed on a public page and a visitor who is not logged in views the page, the module will display an error instead of the input fields.
