Question Editing profile - autofiled password

More

The problem appear when you have settings in your browser to remember auto fill the form fields or remember passwords automatique.

So when you EDIT your account you may be see that the first field from your passwords pre-filed (1) ********* . But if you do not fill the password confirmation field as well then ANY change (2) for ex. upload new avatar ) in the profille is not saved, and also there is no indication of error.




The solution could be changing the name of the form field password so it is not auto filled or at least generate error "Password doesn't match"

Hello,

This is a known issue in k1.6.0 and this will be fixed in k1.6.1

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.

I found very elegant solution of the mentioned problem:

You have to edit your 'edituser.php' file usually located at
\components\com_kunena\template\default\profile\edituser.php

Find the line of code (about line 53) that handles the input fields for password:
<input class="inputbox validate-password" type="password" id="password" name="password" value="" size="40" />

and change it to :
<input class="inputbox validate-password" type="password" id="password" name="password" value="" size="40" autocomplete="off" />

i.e. you have to add autocomplete="off" as parameter.

That's all! (optionally you may wish to add it to the password2 input field as well)
This will save you a lot of complains like "Why my profile doesn't save when I update it?"

Hope this helps :woohoo:

Hi xillibit,

I just finished testing

I confirm that the problem persist with K1.6.1 after upgrade from K1.6.0 :

without the fix autocomplete="off" :



After applying the fix it is OK :



Also - there is still no error message if password doesn't match.


Hope this helps
Thank you

the autocompleter="off" is working on Google Chrome ?

The autocompleter="off" is not valid in W3C, so you need to set autocompleter="off" with javascript

Yes I know it is not valid in W3C but it solves the problem for me for now ... :dry:

It works with latest Firefox 3.6.12 Chrome 7.0.517.44 Safari 5.0.2 ie 8.0.7600

Again, even it is durty fix it works for me because you could imagine what happenes when you urge your members to update their profiles and they come back not with very happy language :lol:

I guess you are goin to fix this in the next releases. Most of the people don't get it that the tabs are updated all together on save... or at least an error message is neccesary to popup

Thank you so much for the help and the great support !!!
