    Umbraco upgrade and new membership features


    I've managed to do an upgrade from 6.1.6 to 7.1.3 and seems to have gone quite well. The upgraded site had a bunch of members already as part of it.

    After the upgrade I noticed that were some new members properties added by default and I was wondering if it was possible to disable these? To be more exact, is it possible to disable the "Is locked out" feature?

    Reason being is that we don't want to forcibly lock out any users from the site, and create any additional tasks for the client.

    Thanks, Bijesh

    Hi Bijesh,

    I don't think you can disable them. But you can set a ridiculous high number of allowed attempts before you get locked out. This can be set in the web.config => MembershipProvider.

    If you add the attribute "maxInvalidPasswordAttempts" you can set it to 10000 or something like that. The default is 5 I think (

    Thanks for the pointer, I'll take a look at this. Might be a good work around for now.
