Change user password from admin interface

Post by powerburner » Fri Apr 06, 2012 2:26 pm

What would be of great asset for people who haven't setup LDAP (yet) is that when I click edit on a user I get an additional field where I can change the users password. Only when the logged in user has rights to do so of course.

Hi,

phpMyFAQ 2.8 already offers a user control panel where registered users already can change their passwords.

I understand, however, if the user forgets his password and the email address he used to register the only thing left to do for the admin is delete the account and make a new one.
If the admin can change the password for the user that would circumvent that measure and save a lot of trouble.

Kind Regards,

Peter

Thanks for the phpMyFaq, I like it.

However, if a user has no email address, there is no way of changing his password, except in the database.

Is this a bug or a feature?
