Can't change password format

Hi All,

I hope this will be an easy one. The password format dropdown in site settings is grayed out and won't let me change the password format. It is currently plain text and I'd rather it be encrypted. I have set the web.config setting to allow password format change. Is there another setting I'm missing?

Thanks

Re: Can't change password format

Do you have the same setting set to not allow password change in the user.config.

Re: Can't change password format

<add key="AllowPasswordFormatChange" value="true" />

This is in my user.config. I even tried just removing it from user.config altogether. It now only appears in the web.config and is set to "true" but still the format option in the admin is grayed out.

Re: Can't change password format

Hi,

If this is a multi site installation, by default the password format can only be changed from the root site. To make it possible to change it from the child site you need to put this in your user.config

<add key="AllowPasswordFormatChangeInChildSites" value="true" />

Hope it helps,

Joe

Nope. Only one site in this install.

Are you singed in as a user in the admins role?

Re: Can't change password format

I finally got it to work. I allowed child sites in the web.config and then allowed child sites to change password format (as well as allowing the main site to change password format) and after making those changes I could log in and change the password format in the site settings of the admin.
