Hi
I have used vwd express 3.1 of the download to create our club site and everything seems to be working ok. But I cannot find how I am suppose to reset a users password if they forget it, other than deleting there account and recreating it. Is there a button I could add for the administrator to use to send a password to a user, or is there some sql stored procedure i could use temporarly.

Thanks

On the login page, there should be a forgot password wizard. ASP.NET is built in with this control. You don't have to write a thing.

yes I understand that there is if you know your password secret. What i was looking for, is a administrator way to reset someones password.

Hi there,

So you've got a problem with the standard connexion component !
Haaa to do something else from z2bass said you must set the password to "clear" instead of "hashed" in the web.config.
But take care you will loose all the registred member.

All about connexion component in the Login.NET module :

Hope this can help
