Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code  

This will replace the 'Help' button next to your login boxes with a 'Forgotten Password?' button, making it easier for your members to reset their password.

To do this, all you have to do, is edit your 'header' template.

Go to: Admincp > Styles & Templates > Style manager > Edit templates > Show Thread templates > header

In the header template, Find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Voila! That easy!

It will go from:



To this:



The only difference to the image above when using the vb phrase is that it says 'Forgotten Your Password?' rather than ' Forgotten Password?' which would make more sense really :P
Although its totally your choic depending on how much space you want to use. Is so just remove the following line and replace with what you want between the arrows:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you wish to keep your 'Help' button just add this code above or beneath to suit your needs.

To get the little user icon and padlock images for your login area, use this mod.

Thanks, this gives me the idea to add a 'forgot password' link. I don't want to replace Help though.

or you just add the above link to the header, this way you can have both help and forgot password.

Great mod
