I am setting up permissions oná my website and I am trying to figure out What is considered low visibility in ocPortal?

Also when the box is checked in 'Specific-permissions: Forums' what happens where it says "Member's passwords may not be automatically reset" - if the box is UNchecked then the password CAN BE RESET by the member???

Usually items with low/medium/high visibility have a "?" tooltip next to them when you look at it via global privileges instead of the permission tree. See for example "Admin Zone ╗ Security ╗ Choose ╗ Privileges: Submission"

Good question about "Member's passwords may not be automatically reset". Don't know about that one. It would be nice though if more items had the "?" tooltips to clear things up.

Yes I have seen the (?) with the comment but I was looking at the low-impact (low visibility) categories where there is no (?) not sure it matters now because I am disallowing it in my permissions. Thanks temp1024


Still will be interested in an answer to my second question:

I think there are probably no low-impact categories in ocPortal, but the option is there for consistency, who knows what the future holds.

Regarding that option, it is worded correctly. Think of it like this – a higher privilege member needs additional security, so this is a marker that they are so privileged people can't request a reset of their password like that (would be an issue if their email account was hacked into).

I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.

So checking the box does what?

Enabling the "Member's passwords may not be automatically reset" will prevent anyone from asking for that member's password to be reset via the e-mail-based reset process.

Then maybe it should be changed to something along the lines of "Member's passwords may not be reset by users e-mail-based reset". or "Member's passwords may not be reset using 'Forgot your password' feature".
