Hi all,

Is there a simple way to override forgotpassword functionnality ?

I'd like to give back some of my user original password from another system.

probably the fastest way is to create a custom view, and do all the biz logic you need in there.

if you wanrt to keep the same url, you can add a redirect from user/forgotpassword to your new view

thanks Gaetano for your reply,

i'm going to follow your advice. In fact, i need to keep actual logic and for one category of users do something different.

Of course i was hoping for the possibility of doing nothing much code.

Hello Patrice,

Creating a custom module view is not really that hard to do and does not require very much code at all.

You can even copy the default module view (user/forgotpassword) and customize as needed which can save a lot of time as well.

I hope this helps ...
