[resolved] [Plugin: Register Plus] Option For User to Change Password (3 posts)

    I'm very new to WordPress and just getting my blog set up. Love Register Plus so far, but I would like to see one additional option for a user to be able change their existing password.

    This matters because I am using the DDHideAdmin plugin so that subscribers are blocked from seeing the wp-admin page. What that means is that if someone loses their password, they will receive an automatically generated password without the ability to change it (or remember it.)

    I have a feeling I may have dug myself in a hole with this one. Is this impossible to do if I am blocking subscribers from their profile page?

    You can use WP Hide Dashboard instead. It hides everything on the dashboard except that users profile, so they can still change their password.

    thanks for the suggestion. i did see that plugin, but i didnt like that subscribers would still see the wordpress-styled admin page.

    actually, i found a solution that does work for my purposes. The Theme My Profile plugin allows access to profile info without loading the admin page. this means i can still use DDHideAdmin and redirect subscribers to my home page after they register. then, using the Sidebar Login plugin, i added a link to their themed profile so they can change their password, info, etc.
