Reset user's password in forum

Post by mottaguedes »

Hi Everyone,

this must be the silliest thing to ask but...

how can I reset a users password? I mean whithout myself going into his profile and changing it in the Administration Panel.

Thanks!

I might be brain-dead here, but has the user tried the "forgot my password" link on the login screen?

If they can't get that to work, then you will have to reset it inside their profile, via the ACP.

using any control-panel install/update is like shooting yourself in the foot. It won't kill you, but you're really going to hobble around until it heals.
Using the wrong tools (Front Page, DreamWeaver) gives the same results
