Lost password page should send a link to change the password

Priority: major Milestone: unassigned
Component: BW Profile Keywords: Password Reset
Cc: steinwinde, fake51

Description

Lost password page should send a link to change the password.

The current system is annoying in two ways:

  • It comes up with a password difficult to remember.
  • Anyone can change anyone's password.

Through AdminWord? I added a link to http://www.bewelcome.org/user/password from the message that's sent out. This still leaves the possibility to annoy others by changing the password though.

I think this still needs more work. The current implementation seems flawed. Also changing your lost password is a major feature I think.

afaik, peter has done something there already, but it never left the old svn repo. If you still have the old files, please have a look in build/members/pages/forgottendetails.page.php

If you need, i can send you all the files.

same here: micha, do you commit to doing this within the next 2 weeks until the milestone is released? if not, please assign it to the next milestone or set it to milestone unassigned, because 0.5.8 is a bit crowded. 5 tickets per milestone has proven to be a realistic aim at current pace.

  • Milestone changed from 0.5.8 - bugfixing to unassigned

ok, this didn't happen for this milestone. and until there is no real commitment to get this done, i feel reluctant to attach it to another milestone.. ;)

This is a small issue and personally I prefer this method, but feel we should use best practice on this one, especially if the work is half or mostly done.

Closing this one as there is a new ticket #1860 to migrate the code from bw and user.
