Description

Issue:
Even though changing one's password is one of the main reasons to acces ones user profile, it isn't very visible there (a link sitting at the right upper corner).

Solution:
i.e. make it a box below chaning ones name/email

History

#1 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 5 years ago

I'm not sure that having the same form to update its email/preferences and changing its password is more intuitive.

#2 Updated by fangzheng (方正) over 5 years ago

Maybe Mo Ru wants to change the password directly under the same page, instead of via clicking the link to go to the "Change password" page.
Well, I don't mind an extra click, IMO, since it's very rare for me to change the password.

Or, how about setting the link to be bold to make it more visible? :)

#3 Updated by Mo Ru over 5 years ago

yes, it's about the visibility/position of the thing. The user-name and the password are semantically connected as they are used together at login. So I think grouping them / placing them in each others proximity in whatever way will make people find the password-change-dialog faster. :)
