    Single user protection, password not changeable!

    On a page I'm currently trying out rolebased and single user protection to keep content away from the public.

    Now that I'm done developing and everything runs fine, I wanted to reset the password on the protected page.. which apparently doesn't work. I also tried removing the protection, adding a new one with completely different user and password settings, but still, I can't login with the new data, I HAVE to keep using the old username and password.

    I tried verifying this problem by creating another content node, protecting it, logging in, logging out, remove protection, add protection with different login data, try to log in with new data (which doesn't work), trying to enter the old login data and voila I'm logged in..

    please please fix this :/

    My page is running the new 6.1.2 by the way..

    Hi Jan

    This sounds like a bug in the core - please report this on the issue tracker found at When you have done so please post a link to the issue in here so others can go and vote it up.

    I should also mention that the recommended stable version is currently Umbraco 6.0.7 - but I don't know if the same issue exists in this version as well though.

    Sadly my code doesn't work under 6.0.7, so I wasn't able yet to test if there is the bug, too, or not.

    Jan ( :D )

    This sounds an awful lot like:

    (which I stumbled across as the same issue on a 4.7 site)

    The only work-around (not solution) is to go into the Members area, find the member record for the single-user login you created, then change the password there.
    That works fine. 

    Whether you add and remove, or simply add and then change the password for a single-user based protection of a page - the original password for that username remains the same.
