Hello again,

I want to change the registration procedure in a specific website and let users to pick/enter their password upon sign up.

Is there any best practice to do this with cmsBuilder & membership addon?

Thank you in advance,
Karls

Hi Karls,

I totally agree with Dave. Security trumps convenience every time.

I usually give all new users a generic password and force them to change it to one of their own choosing the first time they log in.

The recipe for this is in the CMSB Cookbook as: "IMPLEMENTING THE EMAILONAPPROVED PLUGIN WITH THE WEBSITE MEMBERSHIP PLUGIN (ENCRYPTED PASSWORDS)"

You don't have to use the emailOnApproved plugin, but in my implementations, all members needed to be manually approved.

You can get a free trial subscription to the CMSB Cookbook from the link below and check it out.

Best,

Hello Dave & Jerry,

Thank you for your suggestions. I'll proceed with user selected passwords but sending activation mail & link before first use. I think it is the faster and more user friendly, skipping the forced password change procedure in the middle.
