Reset Password Form Tag

Overview

Output a reset password form that allows members accessing it via a link from a forgotten email form to reset their password while logged out.

{exp:member:reset_password_form}

        <label>Your Email Address</label><br />
        <input type="email" name="email" value="" maxlength="120" size="40" />

        <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" />

{/exp:member:reset_password_form}

Parameters

return=

return="member/login/success"

This parameter allows you to define where the user will be returned after successfully completing the form. The parameter can be defined in two ways:

  1. Use the standard Template_Group/Template syntax to specify where to return the user. For instance, if you want the user to be returned to the “local” Template in the “news” Template Group, you would use: return=”news/local”
  2. Use a full URL. For example: return=”https://example.com/return.html

Form Inputs

Password

        <label>Your New Password</label><br />
        <input type="password" name="password" value="" maxlength="50" size="40" />

The new password to set.

Password Confirmation

        <label>Confirm New Password</label><br />
        <input type="password" name="password_confirm" value="" maxlength="50" size="40" />

Duplicate of the new password set in the password form input.

Variable Pairs

The backspace= parameter will remove characters, including spaces and line breaks, from the last iteration of the tag pair.
