Force Password Change
« on: May 15, 2015, 07:54:03 PM »
Alright i'm wondering if there is already a mod/option for this?? I did a brief search but to no success. Is there a mod that forces every member to change their password upon login? My forums was compromised so i'm doing this just to be on the safe side.

I know that this exists --> https://github.com/emanuele45/Force-New-Password
But I never used it so I don't know how it really works...

Another possibility is to generate a random password hash for everyone, which would render passwords useless (thus forcing each user to reset his own)

Alright, i'll look into those two possibilities. Thank you.

I installed this package, but I don't see anywhere where you can enable this function on new members.

I did a test to see if it just hardcoded this function to all new members, and it did not force a password change.

We probably need some detailed instructions on how this actually works. If I figure it out on my own, I'll post it here.

Good day.
