Default Password Resets - Work Around

While the emails aren't sending automatically on my site, I thought I'd give other Mysidia members the work around I started using, for those who may not be aware of it.

It is simply this:

Go into your MyPHP (Or in my case phpMyAdmin)and expand your adopts database.

Find the table called "adopts_passwordresets".

In this table, you have all the information you'll need to send an email to the user. Using the site's email *(If you have one. We use gmail.)*, make a form letter. The one I use is as follows:

Quote:
Subject: Username - Password Reset

Message: Please use this link to gain access to the password reset page:

http://yoursiteurl/forgotpass/reset

Use This Reset Code: JKwfnAhua

Please let us know if you have any problems or questions.
That way your user can still reset their password on their own. ^.^ Hope this helps someone.

If your site isnt sending password reset emails, it can be one of the two reasons:
1. You are on shared hosting account and your webhost disables PHP mail() function.
2. Your admin/system email address is yahoo email(postfix @yahoo.com).

In case 1 you need to contact your webhost for help, and in case 2 all you need is to use a different email address.

That can't be accurate, HoF. The email I'm using is Gmail and the customer support on my host says it's enabled. T_T No luck for me.

This topic is old, but it's still a problem for me. Whenever one of my users uses "forgot password" they tell me they never got the email. I don't check that table often enough for this method to be convenient either; though it is better than nothing.
