    Is there a way to provide access to change a user password?  If I reset it then it defaults to  a very secure hard to remember character set.  I would prefer to be able to type in a more simple one as the admin for the system.

    It looks like I must first reset as admin, logout and login as user, with admin privleges as well, to change the password to what I want.

    Hello Rick,

    Thanks for contacting us.

    Passwords can be reset using the change password control from Visual Studio. Simply drop that tool onto a user control and upload it to Sitefinity. For your convenience, I have attached a user control demonstrating this functionality.

    To give you more info on security, our CMS is using the same Membership, Roles and Profile classes from the .NET Framework, so the entire API applies to Sitefinity. Our CMS is also using the login controls from Visual Studio, such as the Create User Wizard and Login control, and these tools were wrapped into User Controls and uploaded to Sitefinity. To update them, simply navigate to the ~\Sitefinity\UserControls\Login directory and change the controls accordingly. For more info on using the ASP.NET login controls, please read this MSDN article.

    Feel free to contact us if you need further assistance.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
