The Forgot Password core page is where a user is directed when they forgot their password and wants to request a new one be sent to them. There is only one forgot password core page on your site which is used by all users regardless of their access rights.
You can easily generate a link to the Forgot Password core page by using the SmartTag™ CorePage_Link type='forgotpassword'.
Changing the Layout of the Forgot Password Form
The forgot password form template is comprised of HTML, CSS and SmartTags™. The SmartTags™ provide all of the functional components of the form. In fact, you can remove all of the HTML and just use SmartTags™ and the form will still work. The HTML is used to specify the layout of the form elements and as the HTML is present right within the WordPress editor, you can modify it any way you want. You just need to make sure that the SmartTags™ remain intact.
Styling the Forgot Password Form
The forgot password form template is comprised of HTML, CSS and SmartTags™. The forgot password form is fully functional when only the SmartTags™ are used. The HTML and CSS provided by MemberMouse demonstrate just one way of laying out and styling the functional elements. To style the form you could completely remove the HTML that MemberMouse includes and add your own or you could override the MemberMouse CSS styles to adjust the look of the default form template.
You can download this CSS template which contains styles you can use for modifying the look and feel of the forgot password form template.
