[resolved] Password reset option on Blocked Pages? (5 posts)

    Thank you for the wonderful plugin of WP-Members. I can't believe it took me this long to find such a simple effective member plugin that just works!

    One question I have is that if I Block a whole page, it displays the username and password fields. But there is no link to reset a password (if a user has forgotten his/her password). Here is my example: http://www.ispwp.com/forum.

    I did notice that the Members Area log in screen area DID have a reset link. Can a blocked page be setup like the Members Area page, with the option: "Forgot password? Click here to reset"?

    The problem is that if a member goes to a Blocked page, and can't remember their password, they don't see a reset option.

    I tried modifying the blocked page error message text to include the link "http://www.ispwp.com/members-area?a=pwdreset" but when I'd save it WP-Members would break the HTML.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    @jcmilton, sorry not to have an answer for you. I was curious if by chance you have come across a solution?

    Sorry I didn't see this before or I would have answered it. Thanks @steckinsights for your question, as that kind of bumped this up on my radar screen.

    This is actually a moot point now as the most recent 2.5 series of releases adds an option to set the location of the member settings page. If that is set, the reset password link will show on all the login forms.

    Also, if a register page is set up, there is a similar option for that. If it is set, a register link will show on the login forms as well.

    Just in case anyone has the same question that I had after reading this post and attempting to add the links:

    I created a page called "register"* and just pointed the Member and Register pages to "yourdomain.com/register" and that did the trick.

    *(Any name works. Make sure that page is blocked, either by the "block all" setting or by adding the custom field "block" with a value of "true")
