Password Reset Form? (5 posts)

    Hi everyone -
    I have a client who wants to create a password reset form for logged-in users. This is in addition to the standard Lost Password? link.

    A couple of questions:
    1) Any suggested methods? I found this tutorial using Gravity Forms that looks promising: http://blog.avirtualhome.com/edit-user-profile-with-gravity-forms/

    2) Is this a security issue? I googled and didn't see any articles about this, so not sure if it's just not something people are looking for, or if it's a security concern?

    Many thanks,
    Anne

    Why can't they use /wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

    That's what they have right now - they are looking for a one-step front-facing form.

    For example:
    New password __________
    Confirm new password __________

    There are no native WordPress functions for this. The closest one that does exist is http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_lostpassword_url

    I would have serious security concerns about trying to roll your own lost password form.

    That's what I figured. Thanks for your help.
