Hi ER,

Thanks for the check-up Smile !

Seriously, If I'm misusing the mod, I don't know how I'm doing so. Just to be clear, there are two scenarios:

1. I log in as admin and change somebody--anybody--else's password, using the admin screen. This works every time, and updates both the .pass and the record in the db.

2. I log in as somebody else (a test account with view/add/modify/delete but no admin priveleges). I click 'change password' and enter a new one into the dialog. Everything reports success (as far as I can see as this test account), and I log in using my new password.

Under scenario 2, however, this test account is now the only user who can log in at all, as the .pass file contains only his entry.

Have I misread how this mod is to be used by non-admin users?

BTW, I see that you posted a second time and mentioned you can't change the password either from the mod you got from Carol. Did you test the mod yourself? You also mentioned a variation (that Eliot mentioned). So is this bugs? Did Eliot or anyone suggest a fix?

I'm happy to get any clarification I can, so I know where to look or can adjust how I use the mod!
