I'd be surprised if that helps... just encrypting a password doesn't put
it into effect.
The only recipe I'm aware of that gives password-changing capability to
AuthUser is ZAP (see Cookbook/MemberMgmt). To use it you have to adopt
ZAP's system for storing personal data on the Profiles page, and all
pages in your wiki should require a password to edit, but depending on
your site those are small prices to pay for the flexibility and
functionality ZAP offers. If you choose to go that route, I'll be happy
to help answer questions. --Ben S.
