I'm working on an EE 1.6.8 site with SolSpace User 3.0.1 . The password reset form does not seem to be working. When entering the new password in the Confirm New Password box, a message comes up straight away "Please enter the same value again". Both passwords are the same. Thanks.

{exp:user:edit return="account/index"}

<h1>Change Password</h1>

<p><label for="password">New Password</label> <input type="password" name="password" class="pass" /></p>
<p><label for="password_confirm">Confirm New Password</label> <input type="password" name="password_confirm" /></p>
<p><label for="current_password">Current Password </label><input type="password" name="current_password" /></p>

<p><input type="submit" value="Update" /></p>


At a glance your code looks fine to me.

If you look at the change log for User module you'll see many changes relating to passwords.

Some examples:

  • Fixed a bug where edit_profile was xss cleaning password_confirm and current_password, unintentionally disallowing ampersands and other special characters in passwords.
  • Fixed a bug where the Register and Edit tags were messing up passwords containing ampersands.
  • Fixed a bug where ampersands in passwords would cause issues from User

Perhaps you should update and see if the issue persists.

  • I'm working with an EE 1 site, is there anyway to get hold of EE 1 versions of the add on? They don't seem to be available anywhere. I think the last version before support for EE 1 was dropped was 3.3.10, is this available to download? – Mark Dec 11 '13 at 14:50
  • I'd recommend you reach out to the fine folks at Solspace. – AllInOne Dec 11 '13 at 15:01
