How to change Lost password validation (2 posts)

    Currently when a users forgets his password he can easily retrieve it by going to the lost password page and enter his login name and e-mail addres.

    However I would like this to be simpler by only having to input the e-mail address. Since when a user does use the lost password option the new password is sent to his e-mail address I think giving one's e-mail address alone is enough and less confusing.

    How can I make this so??

    Assuming you're saying you don't want the user to have to enter/remember their Username, then you'd have to modify the wp-login-php script as it now extracts the password from the wp_user table based on the user_login field.
