INTRODUCTION

Recovery Password Module alters default Drupal password reset process and makes
it possible to send the new password in recovery mail itself.
In this case, when user clicks on forgot password providing valid username
or email address, new password is generated randomly and is sent to the
user email address.

MODULE DETAILS

Drupal by default sends Password Reset URL by mail to user's email id in
password recovery mail, but Recovery Password modules makes it possible for
Drupal to send any random password by email instead of URL to the user.

Recovery Password Module alters default Drupal password reset process and
makes it possible to send the new password in recovery mail itself.
In this case, when user clicks on forgot password providing valid username or
email address, new password is generated randomly and is sent to the
user email address.

The password recovery mail body and subject to be sent to user is configurable
and corresponding configuration settings are available at
admin/config/people/recovery-pass.For displaying new password please use
[user_new_password] placeholder in the mail body.

Important: As of now Recovery Password Module overrides default Drupal behaviour
for password recovery and hence the previous settings will not work once the
module is enabled till it is disabled again. User tokens are available in this
case also.

Warning !!! Once forgot password is clicked for a user, the password gets
changed for that user immediately.

Added Functionality: After Password Reset, next time the user enters with old
password, a warning message saying that the password has been reset is shown to
the user which is configurable and can be disabled also. While in case user
enters any password other than the old one, that warning message will no more
bappear for that user.

RECOMMENDED MODULES

CONFIGURATION

  • The password recovery mail body and subject to be sent to user is
    configurable and corresponding configuration settings are available at
    admin/config/people/recovery-pass.For displaying new password please use
    [user_new_password] placeholder in the mail body.

  • If HTMLMAIL module exists then write mail in HTML format else email body will
    be sent as plain text considering new line.

  • Warning Message to be shown, if user after resetting the password uses the old
    password again is configurable and can be enabled/disabled. By default warning
    message will be shown.

  • Redirect Path after user submits Forgot Password Form is also made
    configurable with recovery password module.

TROUBLESHOOTING

As of now, Recovery Module alters user_pass form and hence it works at only
Request new password form at url: /user/password .
In case the module is not working properly, you may try:

  • Clear the cache
  • Reinstall the module after disable and uninstallation.
