Redirecting the password

Style a Reset Password Form

Proceed to the Style tab.

Here you will find options for customizing every element of the reset password form. 

Demo messages such as “Your password has been reset” or “That username is not recognized” won’t be visible on the front end until certain conditions are met, e.g., reset successfully or username entered incorrectly.

Reset Password on the Front End

Once you have styled the form, publish it and quit the editor. Open the page you added the form to on the front end.

Please remember that it has to be a real email address for the form to work correctly.

When the user enters the email address or username and hits the “Reset Password” button, a link to create a new password will be sent to the provided email.
