Hi,

I use this marvelous plugin with J! 1.5 for more than a year now.
Recently I moved to J! 3.x but I see that the plugin is compatible only with J! 2.5.x

Any chance to make it compatible with J! 3.x because it's very very useful and a lot of admins upgrade their site to J! 3.x

Thanks in advance!

Denis

Denis,
I haven't tested specifically with 3.x, but the 2.5 version likely works with 3.x already. I'd recommend trying it out on that version if you absolutely need it. I can't guarantee it will work and recommend installing on a test site first.. or testing a lot on your live site. There really aren't many changes to the underlying user system from 2.5 to 3.x though, so my guess is that you won't have issues.

If you do run into problems, let me know.. or if it works, that'd be great to. We do have plans to test and make any changes necessary for 3.x, but if we get feedback one way or the other, that will push us along quicker.

Thanks for the compliments, and glad you enjoyed the J1.5 version so much!

Alex

A small change in Joomla API 3.1 breaks the plugin. Easy to fix:

In:
<site>/plugins/system/forcepasswordchange/forcepasswordchange.php
line 61, change:
$user->lastvisitDate = $date->toMySQL();
into:
$user->lastvisitDate = $date->toSQL();

Thanks Alex!

I had already found the solution that ignatius describe in his post and tried it into a J! 3.1.5 site and works fine!
