"Jaben: Added Admin Password Reset function for User Editor."

Where can I find this? Or is it only available to the currently logged in user?

It's in the Admin User editor. Nothing to do with logged in -- just lookup the user and there will be a reset tab.

alright...I'm still new to YAF, so still trying to figure it out...

my site is running locally, virtual directory is called yaf, so my url is this:

My forum is eB.

Breadcrumbs say: eB » Administration » Users » Edit User "test"

my "test user"'s id is 3

I have the following tabs: User Details, User Roles, User Profile, User Avatar, User Signature, User Points, Suspend User

Now, I have clicked in each countless times and there are no options for passwords. Maybe I don't have the latest version? I downloaded it from this thread. Says: "You are running YetAnotherForum.NET version 1.9.3 beta."

I am logged in as the admin account that was created during installation.

Now, if I click the "My Profile" link it takes me to the Control Panel and I see a "Change Password" under the Personal Profile section, but that's not available to me if I click on someone else's profile after clicking on "Members" (outside of the admin)

Does everyone else see this option clear as day, but me? :?

Verify that you have the updated files from this archive. Doesn't look like your /pages/admin/edituser.ascx file is the newer version from the updated release.

I ran the the beta install to upgrade a database that the 1.9.3 alpha installed on it. The installation procedure said it completed successfully, but redirected me to the forum homepage where I received the following error:

Server Error in '/YetAnotherForum.NET-beta' Application.

Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'UserID', table 'YAF-playground.dbo.yaf_UserGroup'; column does not allow nulls. INSERT fails.
The statement has been terminated.

Did you ever figure this out? I'm getting the same error.

I have a couple of issues with this beta version, hopefully these are quick fixes you can help me out with :)

1. When setting up a new forum (/install/default.aspx), I complete the Create Forum form, and click Next at the bottom, but I get the following message:


The forum and admin user is created OK, I just don't know if there are any setup screens after this which might be causing the next problem.

2. When logging into the forum using the standard login page (/default.aspx?g=login&ReturnUrl=%2fdefault.aspx%3fg%3dforum) I get the following message when I click Forum Login


But, like the first issue it does log me in successfully, it just doesn't redirect me away from the login page.

I downloaded the source from the link in the first post of this thread, and I'm using Visual Studio 2005 to run and install the forum.

Any ideas?

Here's the stack trace for error number 1 above...

Here it is folks!
A release of YAF that supports Memberships, Roles and Profiles. No longer ALPHA, but please test before deploying. BACKUP EVERYTHING before you would attempt an upgrade!

Languages need to be updated to the latest in english.xml. Help with this is appreciated.

Thanks to AirSickMoth, Continienzo, redLine, Kaan1983, Mr. Data, GaryH and all the other that helped test v1.9.3.3 alpha to make this release what it is -- keep up the good work!

Development Team
Thanks to MicScoTho, Mek and especially Ederon who pull a lot of weight into this release! I couldn't do it without your help guys! :cheesy:

Contributing to YAF
How can you support YAF, you ask? Just help a bit. Test the software and post bugs. Answer a few questions on this forum for other, less knowledgeable, YAF admins. If you really want to go crazy, write a little documentation in the wiki...

v1.9.3 will upgrade from v1.9.1.x and below fine. I don't suggest you do it until you feel the software it ready.

Bug Reports
Please post your v1.9.3 problem threads in this forum: http://forum.yetanotherf...opics32_v193-Issues.aspx 

Sorry to say, DNN support was not a goal for this ALPHA release. That's not to say you cannot get it working with this release. If you do play around with it, please report back your findings.

YAF v1.9.3 BETA doesn't requires Web Application Project to compile! In fact, most of the main source is dynamic compilation. But if you do want to compile the whole source, please download Visual Studio 2008 Express .

BIN: Includes the compiled forum and forum page files without the source.
SRC: Includes the compiled forum and forum page files with full source.
