Lock out in 3.5.0 - suggestions

New lock out feature is great…I gave it a short test. Some suggestions to make it really useful:

  • if a User is locked out, nowhere is displayed how long this user will be locked out.

  • ok, I could take my calculator and compute how many minutes are two weeks, but what about a drop down box for minutes, hours, days, weeks an months in combination with an number input field? Would be a bit easier…

Edit: Lock time is shown in the “Security Audit Viewer”, but I would find it more reasonable to show this in user-lockout page.

Hi coolcat! For the first one, the start and end time is shown when you go into the admin console, choose the user, and go to lockout. Is that not what you are looking for?

laugh Primarily I tried to pick some time frames that would be typically used, but I see your point. JM-1320

for point 1:

It’s probably the same bug as this.

Begin: in one hour

duration: for one day

results in:

The user user1 is locked out starting Wed Apr 09 16:57:14 CEST 2008 and ending Wed Apr 09 16:57:14 CEST 2008

times are identically!

Begin: immediately

duration: for one hour

results in the attached screenshot.

Yeah, exact same bug. =) Will get it fixed in 3.5.1.
