This plugin was created to help with user management, giving admins a quick and easy way to reset user's passwords.
This is a really simple plugin that has saved us a lot of time and effort for a task I tend to have to repeat often. I know I could forward my users onto the forgotten password page but we believe in great customer service, so we built a plugin to make this an easy process!
Where do I reset the password?
Go into the 'Users' section and mouse over the user to reveal the Edit, Delete, and now the 'Reset Password' option!
- Fixed text input bug which stripped everything after quotes.
- Made the uninstall hook static
- Filtered out the generic WordPress password reset email.
- Fixed PHP < 5.3 bug by removing anonymous functions.
- Initial commit
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
- Install the plugin via the Plugin >> Add Plugins on you admin dashboard.
- Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
- Your ready to go!
The settings page allows you to customize the emails going out to your users. This page showcases some shortcodes.
To initiate a password reset go to the User tab and mouse over the user.
You can see below that after clicking 'Reset Password' you see a short profile card including avatar, username, and email address. Also you can see we automatically generate a password for your user, however you can specify another password instead, but don't forget to click 'Reset Password' to apply those changes!
You should then see one of two messages; 'Successfully changed the users password and sent them an email.' which is obvious, or you may also see an error message. This typically means that you�ll need to setup an SMTP server.
