after the Update to YAF Forum 2.31.15 we don't find anymore, where a administrator can reset a user passwort. Is this not possible anymore?
The Reason for the manually Passwort Reset is, that the most users of our Forum are not very familiar with modern computers and have issues to type the cryptical resetpassworts, if they reset a passwort by them self. Or they copy the Passwort with an Space or New Line and then they ask Admins, why they new passwort didn't work. Is it possible to define, how strong a new password is generated?
Thanks for Help and Greatings for the great Work on YAF.
The password strength at the moment can be defined in the web.config in the membership provider section
minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" minRequiredPasswordLength="5" ... />
The automated Password generation from .net Membershipp Class generates a very strength password with many NonAlphanumeric Characters. It generates minmal the amount of "MinRequiredNonAlphanumericCharacters", most time their many more of them.
customized the Call of the "generatePassword" and replaced the NonAlphanumeric Characters, that are uncommon Characters and hard to find for some people. I think this is easy enough for the users and wait for response of them.
Thanks for the support.
