I want to change password current credentials, because it needs to much thing to approve the password.for example I want it to accept just '1' as a password, so is there any way to change it.

Try adding this in your webconfig:
minRequiredPasswordLength="1" minRequiredNonAlphanumericCharacters="0

like this:
<membership defaultProvider="YafMembershipProvider" hashAlgorithmType="MD5">
                <add connectionStringName="yafnet" applicationName="YetAnotherForum" name="YafMembershipProvider" requiresUniqueEmail="false" type="YAF.Providers.Membership.YafMembershipProvider" hashHex="true" hashCase="upper" minRequiredPasswordLength="1" minRequiredNonAlphanumericCharacters="0"/>
I wish it was simpler requirements on this site! It's nearly maddening to change your password here. First you have to have it emailed to you, then you have to type a horrific long password, and if you cut and paste, be sure to not include a trailing space, because that invalidates the PW in the change password dialog.

I think that's a bug, by the way - trailing and leading spaces should be trimmed.

Then the requirement for a non alpha, argh. Thanks for letting me vent.

I've had this issue on another site, and most likely will run into this on this site. The passwords that are generated by the forgotten password tool are very difficult, and for users who are not familiar with how to copy and paste, this becomes a challenge. Even with the minRequiredPasswordLength="1" minRequiredNonAlphanumericCharacters="0" set in the web config, is there anyway to make the auto generated passwords easier?
