User can change password?

Postby nwm » Wed Sep 07, 2005 7:37 pm

This seems a basic question can cannot find anything on forums.

I am using the mambo login module with 4.5.2.3 If a user forgets password a new password is emailed to them, this allows logging in again - no problems. question is how and where does user change password to something more memorable?

I'm probably missing a point but would like help

Best wishes for future of Joomla!i

Hi,

If the user logs in, he/she gets the user menu. One of the menu items for this menu is called "Your details". It is on this menu item where he will be shown his user details such as username, name, email and this is also the page where he can change his password.

Hi,

my user menu is published but there are no sub menus and this is the same with other menus except main menu. I am using the same version.

What can i do? Thanks.

The user menu contains no entries if one installs Joomla!/Mambo without sample data (checkbox at install dialog).

Go to "Menu" > "usermenu" and add the links manually. Click on "New" and as type choose "Link - Url". Here are the links found in one of my older Mambo test installations:

"Your Details" -> index.php?option=com_user&task=UserDetails

"Submit News" -> index.php?option=com_content&task=new§ionid=1&Itemid=0

"Submit WebLink" -> index.php?option=com_weblinks&task=new

"Check-In My Items" -> index.php?option=com_user&task=CheckIn (this one is unpublished by default I think)

There is also one menu item called "Logout" and it just points to the "Component - Login". So for this menu item you have to choose the type "Component".

All those menu items are "Access Level: Registered" and have to be set to "Published" of course. Dunno if there are more by default (I don't use the user menu very often) but I don't think so.

The links work very well. Thank you once again!

We did not originally set up Joomla our web hosting company did. It appears that some of the things that should be standard were not setup that way and when we ask about them they want to charge us to add them.

My point being that when I create new users, with default passwords I want them to be able to change them to something unique and secure.

It looks like everything in the User menu is set up correctly see the screen shot (Right click + View Image to view the entire screen shot) Image

What am I missing here?

Well one of my Joomla! installations does not have a usermenu. Does this mean I would have to create a usermenu and publish it for registered users as a module to allow my users to change their password? This seems a lot easier on Wordpress. But if this is the only way I will.

All Menus must be created manually and directed where you want them directed. A usermenu is not like a predefined module, you need to create it to your specifications and wants...

I must really be dense because I'm unable to find any user password controls after I create a user menu. No "My Details" link, none of the things mentioned in this thread. Can someone help clear up the confusion for me?

Another revival of a really old thread :-) Perhaps you should check: http://help.joomla.org/content/view/392/153/ . The user menu should be available in the front end with all options after you have logged on. If it still does not show see: viewtopic.php?p=2055307

@mojito

go to the top where it says user control panel. On the left there should be an option to change profile/edit accounts settings/password.

Thank You - still had to dig around, and couldn't change my password to a memorable one since I needed the original random one emailed to me. But thank you. Will have to do ANOTHER reset :)
