Jab2 - Miscellaneous Admin Functionality
Saturday, 22 January 2011
Administration features always seem to get neglected, so today they get a little polish...
Today I finished off a few nagging administration features in Jab:
The ability to disable new registrations
Before this, anyone could sign up to a running Jab server and create their own sites. This is probably not what most admins of such a site would want so there's a new Web.config setting:
<appSettings> <add key="jabAllowRegistration" value="false" />
If registration is allowed, activation of newly registered accounts is now required - it does the usual email with an activation link.
There's now a "I forget" link on the login screen that users can use to recover their password. It's pretty typical - enter your email address and Jab sends an email that allows for a one time login without a password and while logged in the user simply changes their password.
Promote/demote users from Site Administrators
Site administrators can now promote site users to be administrators of their sites. Administrators and regular users have different capabilities as reflected in the screen shot below:
