Re: Still having trouble with .pass file (secure password mod) In reply to
Apparently, I misunderstood what you meant. You weren't mis-using it. I thought you were logging in as admin and changing passwords for other users from the interface as admin. You said that the password file erases all others except the regular user you log in as. That is very different and a definite problem.

Yes, I did test the mod as a regular user, (several times) and it works well. I did it with the codes from Carol and have not tried Eliot's variation. The one limitation I have (that I'm aware of) is that I can't create new accounts, and that's okay. I'll try his variation later.

If you want to try a working copy, you can copy my files. They are available in text format at http://diverlink.com/members Just modify the changes for your server and database and they should work for you.

You will propably want to rename the cfg file (mine is members,cfg) and the html.pl file (mine is fmhtml.pl) and both will need several changes to make them reflect your needs. However, the mod works. I also have a Verify records added mod in it but it doesn't function (though Carol has checked the code and can't find anything wrong). It doesn't cause any problems, though.

An alternative is to add the code mentioned in an earlier message I referenced earlier, to a fresh DBman and start from there. Only use the code that Carol gave and test it before you make any changes.

You might have a bug, or possibly an error in syntax. One little mistake, a single character, can cause a problem. You can go on a bug hunt or work around it. Either way, there is a solution for your problem. I have found several people here very helpful in solving most of mine (at least the ones related to the database .
