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

The suggestion has some merit points. However, AP security is only as good as your password. If you want more security access to the AP, then password protect it, a secure password is the key to security. I don't like the word security, nothing is secure, just make it more difficult for the hackers. As an added security precaution, change your password as often as you like, keep the password to yourself and never forget to LOG OFF. I must log ON OFF forums a hundred times a day.

I vote "NO"

Sorry for my mistake, I apologise. But I thought that was what I said. Make the AP password more difficult. Change your password as often as you like, keep the password to yourself and never forget to LOG OFF.

Currently there is no password to the Administration Panel. The suggestion is just suggesting that there be an added password to it to help. Yes, you can change your account password often, but there's no harm in an extra password.

That's strange. I just became took over our forum as founder/owner in January. The first thing I did was password protect access to the AP. Mine works fine.

I believe you are confusing the Fouder's tools with the Administration Panel. The Administration Panel is accessed at the bottom of your forum if you are an administrator.

@Forumedic I use a different "Name and Password" name to access the Founders/Tools account. The AP at the bottom of the page I access using my admin/user password. Two accounts, 2 passwords. For administration purposes.

The suggestion is to create a different password for the administration panel.
