Technical Checklist...

This module changes the behaviour of the password forgot function so that the person requesting a new password has to confirm the passwor change, before the new password is active. When the person clicks the link, he/she is logged in and does not need to login again with the new password!

For the confirmation message a new email template is added, that can be configured via the Admin panel, Settings, Email Templates.

Other options of this module include:
- Disable "Email not found" message (the message is a potential privacy leak)
- Option to let user create a new password instead of generating a new password (automatic generation of passwords is more secure)
- Redirect page (currently supported are account, profile and profile edit)
- Recaptcha

Installing the package is simple, just upload the package using the FTP option in Modules, Add & Manage. Select the module from the list of "Not installed modules" and click install.

By default the "Email not found" message is disabled, a temporary password is generated and the redirect page is "profile edit".

* This module also works with Dolphin 7.0.x, however does require one manual changes to the .htaccess file

NEW!!! This module works now together with my Bruteforce module for even better security. (

Nice addition to Dolphin. Works great. Thanks for processing my order manually when it did not work.
As always, good to hear it works great!
And... any questions, don't hesitate to PM me
This is the way that it should work. One issue I have had with members is they forget their passwords and they would claim that the new password sent to them did not work; of course the new password was valid. This method takes that step out of the equation. Members click on the link and go to their profile edit page where they can change the password. Easy Peasy and I don't have to go in and change passwords for members any more.
Thanks for the feedback GG, much appreciated!
