If I assign a site password word can that be used by all members to log on as opposed to private passwords.

What are the pros and cons of doing so?

I can see it would make it easier for some folks to access the site.

The thing I see against it is if someone out side the community has your email and knows the site password they can log on at will there by jeopardizing privacy.

Can a password be all uppercase?

With the SITE PASSWORD, you don't need an account to view the contents of the website. You don't need to use it in association with an e-mail address, so your statement about "has your email address and knows the site password" doesn't matter. If they know the password ONLY, they can log in.

Having the SITE PASSWORD is not an actual log in. There is no login-id associated with you, so you won't be able to fill out a survey or register for the reunion. For these things, you need to be logged in through the normal way.

If I remember right, passwords are not case sensitive, so "PASSWORD" is the same as "PaSsWoRd" and "password" so all uppercase doesn't matter.
