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.

Thanks in advance for any help.
I think if you remove the # sign from the email address, it will work for you as expected.
Hope that helps!
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.
Hope that's all it is! Please let us know if that works. If not, it may actually be a bug, and we'll gladly do what we can to fix it.
Finally, after you've got Force Password Change up and running, please consider leaving a rating and review for it on the Joomla Extension Directory. Good reviews definitely help us to continue developing some of our free extensions and let us know which ones to focus on as well.

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!!!
