Administrator Panel Password

Post by Mehtevas on April 4th 2009, 3:45 am

First topic message reminder :

A totally different password for Adminstrators to access the Administrator panel.
Okay, so you know how you can verify your password to enter the Admin Panel? Well i was suggesting that we could set a different password to enter, like if my log in password was (Cheese) i wouldn't enter that to enter the panel you would enter something else (CheeseCake)

Get it?

By the way, (cheese) is not my password.

EDIT: This will be an optition to turn this On and Off in the ACP

Although this is good, is it really necessary? I mean, you'd only need another password if you didn't want someone you have set as an admin knowing what you use to log in with. But that person can still edit your profile and whatever, so they would be someone you really trust not to do wrong anyway. All it really is is a longer way around things....

its a secruity thing, like if you dont want an admin to eneter the panel and stuff, or like somethings going wrong in the acp, you can change the pass so you can sort things ou/

But then the admin in question would be of no more use than a super/global moderator.

Voted no, that extra confirmation would be horrible because of people always going in and out of the Administration Panel, making changes, it's time consuming, they's no security benefit, and it would be Hell for theme designers. If this is implemented (which it shouldn't be) it should be an option, not a requirement.

Kinko, could you edit your first message adding this: "There would be an option to turn this off"

People are getting the wrong idea and voting no, because when forumotion implements something new there is always a yes or no option.

I voted No.

Why? I find that not good idea. And if you forget the password of the admin panel? What to do?

There is no need for extra security though, if you don't want someone in the Administration Panel, don't give them access, it's as simple as that.

okay, so, lets say i make you admin, someone else finds out your password, and can get into the admin panel.

If this was implemented, than they couldnt get into the admin panel.

That has to do with the irresponsibility of an administrator, or if someone found out the password that easily, what's to stop them from finding out the other one? It would just be a gigantic waste of time.

Ok, what if somebody guesses the password of your forum. They could easily access the admin panel. If you had an extra password, it could prevent further access to the admin panel.

Still, it's not worth the trouble. Think about how often you enter the Administration Panel, what if you had to enter a password every single time? I enter the Administration Panels on several forums multiple times every day. I'd say I click on the Administration Panel link around 200 times a day, now think about what it would be like to enter a password 200 times a day, it would be so annoying! I like the Administration Panel access the way it is because it's simple and effective, so it shouldn't be changed.

I voted no for the sake of people who use auto fill. If I didn't have that, I would have to type my passwords over and over (which would be fairly annoying to have to type out a 15+ character password.). I make mine pretty hard to guess anyways. If this is enabled, I suggest a choice to make it enabled based on the user and not globally.

Hi,

I support your suggestion! It is a great improvement for the administrator control panel if implemented. It would also reduce the chance of changing the options in this panel if the account of an administrator was hacked. Voted yes! You have my vote!
