  • [CMS] Adding "Forgot Password" to top NavBar of forum/CMS

    Hello,

    I am new to vbulletin and so far love it after coming from a very old and legacy system running ASPplayground. I have a few bumps during the setup process which I chalk up to the learning curve of a new product.

    The problem I am having now is the imp-ex migration does not provide the users with working passwords. This is not a huge ordeal but I cannot see an easy way to have the "lost/reset password " link added to the top navbar so users can easily change or reset their passwords when accessing the new system.

    I went through a number of posts where they stated it was under edit templates -> show thread options and to use Suspended or Unlicensed... but this is not something I see as they reference the "header" template which is not in this location.

    I do have a header template in the main template menu but I don't see how to add this forgot password link and I have also checked the navbar. I am not a real good mod guy but can follow directions well, is there something someone can point me to or maybe tell me exactly what I need to do, what file to do it in, etc. to have this displayed on the navbar properly without messing something else up.

    I am on 4.1 patch level 2.

    I will be sending an email out to all users with the direct link but with spam boxes, etc. I really need to have this option available on the front page before I can roll this out live.

    Thanks for any assistance, great product.

    Here's the easiest way to do it via the header template:

    Add the line of code in red. (Shown here with a default copy of the header template in v4.1.0)

    Code:
    <div class="above_body"> <!-- closing tag is in template navbar -->
    <div id="header" class="floatcontainer doc_header">
        <div><a name="top" href="{vb:raw vboptions.forumhome}.php{vb:raw session.sessionurl_q}" class="logo-image"><img src="{vb:stylevar titleimage}" alt="{vb:rawphrase x_powered_by_vbulletin, {vb:raw vboptions.bbtitle}}" /></a></div>
        <div id="toplinks" class="toplinks">
            <vb:if condition="$show['member']">
                <ul class="isuser">
                    <li><a href="login.php?{vb:raw session.sessionurl}do=logout&amp;logouthash={vb:raw bbuserinfo.logouthash}" onclick="return log_out('{vb:rawphrase sure_you_want_to_log_out}')">{vb:rawphrase log_out}</a></li>
                    <vb:if condition="$show['registerbutton']">
                    <li><a href="register.php{vb:raw session.sessionurl_q}" rel="nofollow">{vb:rawphrase register}</a></li>
                    </vb:if>

      can't believe this isn't standard.
      I get tired of manually sending password reset info to users through the Admin CP

      I couldn't believe it was so difficult until I logged out myself & tried to log in with an incorrect password just to see if everyone else is blind.
      Turns out that there is a reset password link in the vBulletin Message:
      You have entered an invalid username or password. Please enter the correct details and try again.
      Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Click here!

      You have used 1 out of 5 login attempts. After all 5 have been used, you will be unable to login for 15 minutes.
      But its just so inconspicuous that its easily over-looked.

      It should be bolded, highlighted or something to make it more conspicuous.
