  • Resolved pubman


    This is an excellent plugin and we using it currently on our site. Two features my users are requesting are:
    -Ability to reset password using just email address no username, many people forget their usernames
    -Reset Password Link- Place a link to reset password on the ‘failed login page’, many people can’t figure out how to get to the password reset page.

    Password reset with just email or username is something that is on the project list, but hasn’t been worked into a specific upcoming version. So it will be added at some point, I just don’t know when.

    There is a filter hook that will allow you to filter the login failed message so that you can show whatever you want to in it. That is the wpmem_login_failed filter. A full list of filter and action hooks is available in the User Guide here:

    You can also show a forgotten password link in all of the login forms by setting the location of the user profile page (if you have one) in the plugin’s settings.

    Thanks for the response Chad. I look forward to your progress. Have you guys had any request for an email login (instead of username)?


    Is this plugin compatible or do you see this as a feature in the future?

    Yes, that has been discussed. It’s one the request list, but hasn’t made it over to the project list.

    It can be accomplished using using the various filter and action hooks available in the plugin (a full list here), but it’s a fairly involved process that would need some php skills to accomplish.

    Has this been integrated, this is making it very difficult to use the plugin as people never remember their usernames.
