Change password page doesnt take you to the login page.

David Wilkinson asked on May 24, 2016 16:52

Hi, This is a silly question as I had already rectified this before but my mind is blank.

Basically, You reset your password; /CMSModules/Membership/CMSPages/ResetPassword.aspx

But when you click reset to save your new password you are not taken to a logon page but you stay in the same page with a title called "Reset Password" with text "You can log in on this page"

the "this page" is the href to the referrer page you navigated from.

Can someone please remind me where I set these settings again so you get to the log in page without clicking "this page"

Thanks for your time

In the settings app. Go in there and modify your reset password page (if you're using a custom one in the content tree) and the login page. Change the Reset Password URL in Settings>Security & Membership>General. Change the login URL in Settings>Security & Membership>Content.

you can achieve this behaviour by using Reset password web part. Just follow these steps:

  1. Create a new page used for reset password in Pages application.
  2. Place a Reset password web part on that page.
  3. Edit the web part properties (in Design tab) and set "Redirect url" to the URL you want to redirect the user to.
  4. Go to Settings application and modify the setting "Reset password page URL" to the page you placed the Reset password web part, e.g. ~/Reset-password. The mentioned setting you can find in Security & Membership -> Passwords section.

Now if you request the forgotten password you will receive an email containing the reset password link pointing to the page you placed the web part on. When you type a new password and click on Reset password button you will be immediately redirected to the URL specified in the web part.

Hope it will help.
