    How does normal editor changes his/her password

    It seems to me that there is "My Profile"  missing in Umbraco where I could change password.

    How do you usually do this? Would you give editor access to Users section?

    Unfortunately, there is no place for this. I created a macro that you can add to any page which will allow any logged in user to change their password:

    sorry, i made it my-info and then i changed the name of the project so it would come up in appropriate search results.

    Would be nice though having possiblity to change personal detail somewhere next to Help button but in the other hand not sure if this should be default functionality. 

    Anyway, thanks Seth for nice macro.

    That is a good suggestion. I figured out how to do it easily...you just have to change 2 files (only one if you dont want to mess with languages). There is a screenshot of the button on my project: http://our.umbraco.org/projects/my-info---change-user-password-and-email

    If you want to add a button on the backend next to the about button you can do this (Backup files before you edit them):

    Edit the /umbraco/umbraco.aspx and find the  <div class="topBarButtons">

    Inside of it, add this button and image (with '/MyInfo.aspx' being the URL to your web page with the control:

     <button onclick="window.open('/MyInfo.aspx','help','width=750,height=500,scrollbars=auto,resizable=1;'); return false;" class="topBarButton">

     

                        <img src="images/newStar.gif" alt="about" /><span><%=umbraco.ui.Text("general", "myprofile")%></span></button> 

    Then, you will need to add text for 'myprofile' in the general area of your language file.

    Language files are in /umbraco/lang/

    My en.xml file now has 

     

      <key alias="myprofile">My Profile</key>

    Inside <area alias="general">
