Cannot change password without sending password reset

    :frystare.png:

    so i can't change my password from hunter2 to super awesome entropy password lolololol without sending a password reset email....

    not sure if excellent idea or absolutely terrible idea...

    help me decide?


  • SockDev

    It's a good idea in the same way it's a good idea to cure piles by shoving a sharpened red-hot poker up the whatnot



  • I think you should be able to change your password directly when logged in. It should require your current password for authentication.

    try it and let me know how that goes. :-p

    I mean that's how it should work. I know from previous discussions that Discourse doesn't have that.

    and mandril for wahtever reason hates my email domain. it's really sporadic as to what emails it sends to me....


  • SockDev

    oh and when you do reset your password you aren't even asked to confirm the password...... greeeeeeeeat.


  • SockDev

    and while we're at it, not discourse but absolutely doing it wrong!



  • Careful, your box is showing.


  • SockDev

    like my email address is secret.

    heck accalia@that domain.com gets to me

    :stuck_out_tongue:

    or did you mean that empty password change box?

    It was also visible in the thread about the profile page redesign.
    Unlike my e-mail address, which I blacked out.


  • SockDev

    it was? didn't notice.

    also didn't care so that might be why.
