View Full Version : Password Required Before Updating Profile

31 Oct 2002, 00:25
It was requested by some members on my forums, so I made it and released it :) Hope you like it guys. Feedback is welcome!

Description: With this tiny hack your users will be required to enter their current password before they make any changes to their profile. Useful when your members reads your forums in a public computer (like in school) and they forget to clear the cookies. So other people won't change their profile information maliciously.

Download the file and follow the instructions!

I think you have to provide a field to fill in password, something like

<tr bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}">
<td><b><normalfont>Your current password:</normalfont></b>(You have to provide your password in order to change your profile)
<normalfont><input type="password" class="bginput" name="currentpassword" value="" size="30" maxlength="30"></normalfont></td>

before you submit the modify profile form in modifyprofile template
