[DEV] Forgot Username (MMW)

Post by DeViAnThans3 »

Hey Guys :D
I'll work on this MOD, which was requested in the MODdings Most Wanted (Round 2).
Fountain of Apples wrote: A standard phpBB installation provides a way for a user to reset their password if they have forgotten what it is. It requires the user to enter their username and their email address, then sends them a new password. This is all fine as long as the user remembers their username. Sometimes they forget.

This MOD should add a function that allows a user to retrieve a forgotten username. It could present a form that requires the user to enter their email address (which is the only thing they may know at this point) and request a Username Reminder email. The email should only be sent to the email address specified, and only if the user account is currently valid and active.

The MOD could include an optional "Flood Control" that limits how many reminder emails can be sent to a specific email address, or even from the board in general. This would be done to prevent someone from bogging down the server by requesting a username reminder for the same user over and over, or by requesting a username reminder for every single user on the board.


I'll keep you updated about my progresses :)

Best of Luck, I would've taken this one but thought the Custom Profile one was more in my region. Useful MOD though hope to see you get it done. ;)

Normally hat shouldn't be a problem; it's a pretty easy MOD; maybe it's already done within a week :)

hi there,

just wanted to say this is a great MOD idea (surprised it hasn't been done by someone already). I answer email all the time from people wanting to get their username sent to them.

how's it coming?

thanks.

It'll take me a few days extra to complete it, but i guess about 25% of the work is right now done (language keys etc.) :)

If you want, I'll send you code that I've written that nearly does this. You're free to do as much or little as you like. Details are here:

Specific post with download is here:

You are, of course, under no obligation to use or even read any of my code. I do not intend to complete it as I have other projects that are taking up more of my time. I'm happy to see someone take this idea and hope that you get it completed and released. 8)
