Users Not Prompted to Save Login Credentials in DotNetNuke

Working with a client recently, we got a complaint about DotNetNuke that when you login, IE and FireFox do not prompt to save the password.

With a little research and help from this blog (http://durgaprasad.wordpress.com/2006/09/28/why-doesnt-firefox-prompt-to-remember-yahoo-password/) I found that it is because the HTML Form tag had the attribute autocomplete=”off”.

I looked back a couple of versions and only found it in the 4.8.x branch.

To remove it, simply open default.aspx in the root of your DNN application and look for the tag and remove the autocomplete=”off” attribute and you’re all set.

Have fun Nuke-ing…
