Prevent Password Reset

Prevents password reset for select users via the WordPress "lost password" form.

Why was this plugin created?

I needed a way to disable password resets for specific administrators on my site but leave this functionality open for the other 1,000s of users. So, I chose to make this an option on a per-user basis.

How do I use it?

Once installed, a checkbox gets added to the "Personal Options" section of each user's profile page in the WordPress admin. Anyone who can edit the user may check this box to disable password resets for that individual user.

I forgot my password. What should I do?

The easiest way to do this is to log into your hosting account via FTP. Proceed to your plugins directory and delete the prevent-password-reset folder. This should allow you to reset passwords for any user account via the "lost password" form.

If you don't have this type of access, you need to talk to a site administrator who does to have them update your password.
