    And then how do they change it?

    Hi Dianne,

    Once members have the ability to edit their passwords per the setting in attribute security, they can change the passwords when editing their profiles, similar to how they would edit other attributes.

    I know this is an old topic - but I hope someone reads this - How can I change the order of the attributes that are on the edit screen when seen by a member -  I have then very nicely organized by Tabs and in logical order in the Admin side - but they are all jumbled up when  user tries to edit their own.  Can we not have tabs on the frontend also?  I thought that was what I was getting.

    Hi Sharon - You can edit the order of attributes for the front end under Database > User Search Results. Use the button "User Profile Layout" to configure the order, and drop in sections (similar to tabs) as needed. Here's a video that should help.

    Exactly what I needed - thank you, Kinsey.

    Sorry for another comment on an old topic... but has anyone thought about password security? We want to give our members the ability to edit their passwords (obviously), but as a user, when you go to view your profile, your password is presented in plain text. It would be nice if it were listed instead as asterisks or not listed at all. There's no need to display it in plain text — even when a member goes to edit it.

    Really, when I go to change my password, I should have three fields (as a user): one to enter my existing password, one to enter my new password and one to confirm my new password. That's sort of minimum standard UX.

    I know this isn't a high-risk security issue (unless someone were looking at your profile over your shoulder), but it would certainly put our members at ease.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jeremiah,

    I must say that your timing is excellent, as this is a change we have actually begun work upon. Though our build for this change is not yet complete, we should be implementing this sometime in the not-so-distant future. The desire from our customers regarding this feature has seen us push this idea to the forefront of our coming changes, so you can look forward to seeing this sometime within the coming months!
