Stuck trying to change password

Stuck trying to change password

I installed this plugin in a Joomla 1.5 site.  I set up a test user who had never logged in before.  When I logged in as that test user for the first time, I was directed to the Edit Your Details page with the message "You must update your password before continuing to use the site."  I entered a new password, and then tried to save the changes.  When I clicked on the Save button, the title for the email field turned red.  I am unable to go anywhere because this apparently didn't save the new password. 

I found where another post suggested moving the plugin up in the order, and I did that, and in fact moved it to the first position.  This did not make a difference.  I am still unable to save the new password, and I am unable to go anywhere else in the site, and I am not even able to log out of the site.

See screen attachment image:  http://www.sourcecoast.com/components/com_agora/img/members/6232/Force-Password-Change-screen.jpeg

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Stuck trying to change password

Pat,
The issue isn't likely from the Force Password Change plugin, but from the email you're using. The # sign is not valid in email addresses, and Joomla uses a Javascript validation on that page to check for invalid characters. In the admin area of Joomla, you can add whatever you want (you're the admin!). On the front-end though, Joomla checks for non-valid things automatically.

I think if you remove the # sign from the email address, it will work for you as expected.

Hope that helps!
Alex

Re: Stuck trying to change password

Thanks again, Alex.  It never occurred to me the pound symbol was causing this issue.  I'll give it a shot tomorrow, and let you know if I'm still having problems.

Re: Stuck trying to change password

Hi, Alex.

I deleted the old user with the "#" symbol in the email, added a new one, and everything worked perfectly.  Now I understand why the email address label turned red.  It didn't "approve" of the address!  One more lesson learned. 

Thank you for your support, especially since it is a free extension.  I have left a review at Joomla!  Much appreciated!!!
