    I actually developed this some time ago, but work just keeps me so busy I haven't had time til now to post it. Now that we FINALLY just launched our new site (check it out: http://www.quintamazatlan.com) I thought I'd take a few minutes to post this up.

    This will add a Password Reset feature to the sitefinity admin login page. Enter your username and you'll get an email with a reset link and validation key to have your password reset and emailed to you.

    This requires that your web.config be setup to send emails.

    For details, visit my blog post: http://www.selarom.net/blog/2009-12-07/Sitefinity_Password_Recovery.aspx

    Or go straight to the download page: http://www.selarom.net/software/Sitefinity/Sitefinity_Password_Recovery.aspx

    hope this is helpful

    Hello SelArom,

    Thank you for this submission.

    This is a useful tool that is good for each site to have. I can suggest that you either post this in our Code Library or submit this in the Sitefinity Marketplace to make this code more visible to our community members.

    All the best,

    Thanks SelArom...

    I have made a few updates to the confirmation screen, if you are interested...
    Some of my users were not reading carefully, so I think they were entering the new password in the ResetPassword screen.  I added the following to the ResetPassword.aspx.cs, so the only action available is to go back to the login.aspx.


    lblUsername.Visible = false;
    UserName.Visible = false;
    lblPass.Visible = false;
    Key.Visible = false;
    LoginButton.Visible = false;
    lnkLogin.Visible = true;
