Frontend password reset

Recommended Posts

I just published a pre-release of my new password reset module. It will enable identification from any field of your choice, and is fully translatable.

Integration is just 2 lines of code, the first is calling the controller, the second is loading a script (no dependencies).

You can download the code on GitHub at https://github.com/plauclair/PasswordReset.

Also, have a look at the reset process in this video https://vid.me/eEVY.  This exemple is not styled, but there should be all you need in there to style it.

Comments and feature requests very welcome!

this is great - last project we needed this on we did something like this, which worked ok:

<?php
if($notices->count) {
	echo '<ul id="notices">';	
		foreach($notices as $notice) {
	  		echo "<li>$notice->text</li>";
		}
	echo '</ul>';
} else {
	echo "<div class='form-container'>";
		$controller = new ProcessController();
		$controller->setProcessName('ProcessForgotPassword');
		echo $controller->execute();
	echo "</div>";
		
}

one problem i noticed was the link in plaintext was breaking, so wasn't clickable, i was thinking that it would be good if the email could be sent in html where the link could be in an anchor tag

I really want to push the usability side of this one. If you've found other shortcomings of ForgotPassword that would like to be improved, let me know. We used to use ProcessForgotPassword too but it's not working that great for us.

@Macrura -- Did the url break in PW's reset module or mine? Also what messaging client (if any)?

sorry - i meant PW reset has hardcoded message that sends plaintext; the url was breaking in Outlook for Mac, i think some newer email clients don't break the URL

Great module...i like it.

Tested here with two different Mail Clients and RoundCube online....all works like a charm.

Put this in the module directory if you are ready....very good extension.

Best regards mr-fan

Thanks guys.

@mr-fan it needs to be production ready this week so for sure it's going to be there pretty soon.

@jacmaes yes currently there is a length check in the module properties. There will be a strength check at some point, but probably not at v.1.

Hey I've been wondering if any of you who are currently using this in production or testing have any feedback? I want to do a proper release soon, and I'd love your input! Cheers!

I just put this to use on a site, because I realized the core password reset module does not have good user experience. It is too much to expect a user to keep their tab open after clicking submit or that they have to do the reset on the same device. So thanks for this traditional reset module!

Thanks for this module, Pierre-Luc.

I get a couple of errors when using it.

When assigning the template "password-reset" to a page or attempting to edit a page with the template assigned I get:

ProcessWire: ProcessPageEdit: Unknown template

Edit: this error seems to be caused by a conflict between Password Reset and the Batch Child Editor module. After uninstalling Batch Child Editor the error message is not shown.

And when viewing a page with this template assigned on the frontend I get:

Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in ...\site\modules\PasswordReset\PasswordReset.module on line 32

Looking at line 32 maybe this error is because my site is not multi-language?

The unknown template error is due to a bug in the settings for the password-reset template.

67 password-reset 121 0 0 {"childTemplates":[120]

There is no template with an id of 120 in my system. 120 refers to the fieldgroup for the password-reset-request template, rather than the id of that template itself. This is the culprit: https://github.com/plauclair/PasswordReset/blob/master/PasswordReset.module#L279

That said, I have added an additional check to BatchChildEditor so the error won't occur. I am currently working on some other changes to BCE so I won't commit this fix just yet, but you can do it yourself by changing:

https://github.com/adrianbj/BatchChildEditor/blob/master/BatchChildEditor.module#L711

if(!$this->isAllowedTemplateAdd($templateId, $pp)) continue;

to:

if(!$t->id || !$this->isAllowedTemplateAdd($t, $pp)) continue;

Thanks Adrian, I'll look if there are other side effects and better ways to fix this one and commit something by this weekend. :)

I think all you need to do is change:

$passwordResetTemplate->childTemplates = [$requestFieldgroup->id];

to:

$passwordResetTemplate->childTemplates = [$requestTemplate->id];

but maybe there is something more to it that I have overlooked.

Most probably. When you said it was referencing the fieldset I knew something else was fishy.


By the way I know from the GitHub stats that a few of you use the module. Is it working as expected, do you think I should provide a default stylesheet? I'd really like some feedback on the direction to go with.

@Pierre-Luc Thank you for your module! Please keep it going. Here are my wishes for the development roadmap.

  1. Make it possible to fully customize the markup. Maybe with some kind of template overrides or something. I think there is no need for anything default, rather an easy way to make it your own.
  2. Ajax would be a good option.
  3. A bit more docs would help. I did experience some bugs when using it with installation having users with multiple templates. It took some time to figure out that I should configure the passwordResetUser field to use multiple templates.

And there should be a 1.0.0 version in the module directory, of course. I did check it on 3.x - seems to work fine.

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      Hi everyone!
      I'm trying out the Login/Register module for my site. Noted that the module assigns the newly registered user to login-register role. 
      Once you modify the login-register role's permissions, particularly adding page-edit, the new member role will be set to guest. 
      Thing is I'd like to grant my new users the power to create their own pages. Any advice? 
      Thanks.

      Hello
      Till now I hacked something with the twig template but it works no more with new PW versions so I look forward to create a module. I am working on a site in multiple languages : French, English, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian. The new posts are entered in any language with a field for language. Till now, I got twig files to get the translations with constants defined for each part of the pages.
      So I'd like to create a module to include theses files added according to the url /fr/en/...
      Have you some observations to do before I begin about the direction to take ?
      Thank you

      Mystique Module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF
      Github repo : https://github.com/trk/Mystique
      Mystique module allow you to create dynamic fields and store dynamic fields data on database by using a config file.
      Requirements
      ProcessWire 3.0 or newer PHP 7.0 or newer FieldtypeMystique InputfieldMystique Installation
      Install the module from the modules directory:
      Via Composer:
      composer require trk/mystique Via git clone:
      cd your-processwire-project-folder/ cd site/modules/ git clone https://github.com/trk/Mystique.git Module in live reaction with your Mystique config file
      This mean if you remove a field from your config file, field will be removed from edit screen. As you see on youtube video.
      Using Mystique with your module or use different configs path, autoload need to be true for modules
      Default configs path is site/templates/configs/, and your config file name need to start with Mystique. and need to end with .php extension.
      Adding custom path not supporting anymore !
      // Add your custom path inside your module class`init` function, didn't tested outside public function init() { $path = __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'configs' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR; Mystique::add($path); } Mystique module will search site/modules/**/configs/Mystique.*.php and site/templates/Mystique.*.php paths for Mystique config files.
      All config files need to return a PHP ARRAY like examples.
      Usage almost same with ProcessWire Inputfield Api, only difference is set and showIf usage like on example.
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : testing-mystique */ return [ 'title' => __('Testing Mystique'), 'fields' => [ 'text_field' => [ 'label' => __('You can use short named types'), 'description' => __('In file showIf working like example'), 'notes' => __('Also you can use $input->set() method'), 'type' => 'text', 'showIf' => [ 'another_text' => "=''" ], 'set' => [ 'showCount' => InputfieldText::showCountChars, 'maxlength' => 255 ], 'attr' => [ 'attr-foo' => 'bar', 'attr-bar' => 'foo' ] ], 'another_text' => [ 'label' => __('Another text field (default type is text)') ] ] ]; Example:
      site/templates/configs/Mystique.seo-fields.php <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : seo-fields */ return [ 'title' => __('Seo fields'), 'fields' => [ 'window_title' => [ 'label' => __('Window title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a window title') ] ], 'navigation_title' => [ 'label' => __('Navigation title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'showIf' => [ 'window_title' => "!=''" ], 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a navigation title') ] ], 'description' => [ 'label' => __('Description for search engines'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXTAREA, 'useLanguages' => true ], 'page_tpye' => [ 'label' => __('Type'), 'type' => Mystique::SELECT, 'options' => [ 'basic' => __('Basic page'), 'gallery' => __('Gallery'), 'blog' => __('Blog') ] ], 'show_on_nav' => [ 'label' => __('Display this page on navigation'), 'type' => Mystique::CHECKBOX ] ] ]; Searching data on Mystique field is limited. Because, Mystique saving data to database in json format. When you make search for Mystique field, operator not important. Operator will be changed with %= operator.
      Search example
      $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.show_on_nav=1'); $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.page_tpye=gallery');
