Joomla! Help Support Warrington Cheshire Manchester Merseyside UKManage all your website USERS' credentials, status and permissions via the USERS screen of the website dashboard.

Individual USERS without special permissions (no access to the dashboard) can change their credentials (username + password) after signing into the website's Front End.

This can be either via a Login Module or a Menu Link.

If you are the only USER then we recommend that you unpublish the Login Module and Menu Link.

And instead administer your website via the dashboard.

 

How to change USER credentials

When the website's Login Module is published, a login panel will be displayed in the Front End.

In a WYNCHCO Website Design we call this module: Sign in.

It enables USERS to enter their USER credentials (username + password) and log in.

Click the button (labelled Sign in) to log in.

 

1) Sign In

users sign in

2) Manage your profile

When published, after signing in, USERS will see the USER Menu.

The USER Menu is displayed by a Menu Module.

In a WYNCHCO Website Design we call this Menu Module: Interact.

The USER Menu contains an edit your details link, which we call 'Manage your profile'.

The link enables USERS to review and change their credentials (username + password).
