Go to the Core Modules.


Look for the Forgot Password module and click the settings button.


And you are there.

@abdulqayyum has version 1.0.1, while the latest seems to be 1.0.3, maybe that feature was added in-between those versions? What version of PW are you running?

You are correct @dragan. Well then I guess that feature came somewhere around the time Ryan provided us with the Login/Register/Profile module.

You probably can.

But first of all you should create a backup of your site. A working and tested backup!

Then you should find out which version of ProcessWire you are running right now and make sure that all of your modules will work with a newer ProcessWire version. You might have to update your modules as well and maybe even have to take a closer look at your PHP version.

You seem to be pretty new to ProcessWire so my advice is:

Get a full backup of that site. Install it in a local environment. Try updating ProcessWire, the modules and whatever is needed.

I wouldn't recommend to update right way as your installed ProcessWire seems pretty old - maybe even kind of outdated.


Can you tell us which version of ProcessWire you are using and what PHP version your hosting has?
Is there anything special with that site? Multilanguage? Custom modules? Custom 3rd-party scripts? Something like that?

It should work but as said before:

Get a working backup first! Thinking about a way more modern PHP version wouldn't be a bad idea as well. AND doublecheck all your installed modules.

      Here is my code
      wire-> modules -> process -> ProcessForgotPassword.php
      protected function step1_renderForm() {
              $form = $this->modules->get("InputfieldForm");
              $form->attr('action', './?forgot=1');
              $form->attr('method', 'post');
              $field = $this->modules->get("InputfieldText");     
              $field->attr('id+name', 'username');
              $field->attr('class', 'redesign-field forgotPassFeild');
              $field->setAttribute('placeholder', 'Username');
              $field->required = true;
              $field->label = $this->_("Forgotton Password");
              $field->description = $this->_("If you cannot remember your password to access the affiliates portal. simply provide your username in the box below and we'll send you a reset link via email.");
             // Calling MarkupGoogleRecaptcha Module.
              $captcha = $modules->get("MarkupGoogleRecaptcha");
             //  rendering form with recaptcha
              $submit = $this->modules->get("InputfieldSubmit");
              $submit->attr('id+name', 'submit_forgot');
              $this->session->userResetStep = 1;
              // rendering form
               $out .= $form->render();
              // getting captcha script
              $out .= $captcha->getScript();
              return $out;

      I am following this one example.

      Hi guys, so since I moved to Processwire, it has been my default go-to CMF/CMS for my website and client applications, apparently my previous job took a toll on me, and made me have less time, but now finally had the chance to change my website to something I always had in mind.
      I decided to go with something minimal, as I tend to enjoy writing, so wanted a website to have more text than graphics and I think I whipped up something clean. Currently I still have more to do, but this is my current website, the main purpose to have a content driven website where I will be writing tutorials , articles more and hopefully  technical  notes.
      Please let me know your honest opinion.
      PS: I am more of a coder than a designer but i think this old dog still pulled it off
