U4-5886 - Moving the "Change password" dialog out of the Content section

Created by Anders Bjerner 25 Nov 2014, 22:24:26 Updated by Shannon Deminick 26 Jun 2017, 06:40:03

This is a follow up on my issue about the "Change password" dialog: http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-4752

In 7.1.4 the "Change password" dialog was re-added to Umbraco 7. Like in Umbraco 6 and earlier, the dialog is located as a tab in the dashboard of the Content section.

However changing your password has nothing do with content, so I believe it should be moved somewhere else. E.g. in the user sidebar revealed when clicking ones avatar (see attached screenshot).

The dialog being located in the Content section also has another issue: When a user doesn't have access to the content section, there is no way to access the Content section dashboard and therefore also no way to access the "Change password" dialog.
