Does "forgot password" actually work?

Does "forgot password" actually work?

Ive setup my own pages (login, forgot password, etc) and I used the security Assist email password in the behaviors panel and it doest work. Searching here I've realized it has a bug.

So I thought if I auto generate "create security pages" that I could take the code from there, but it doest work either.

What must I do, to get this operational?

//WA SecurityAssist Email object="mail"
$WA_Auth_Parameter = array(
"connection" => $conn_resellers,
"database" => $database_conn_resellers,
"tableName" => "users",
"filterColumn" => "email",
"filterEncryption" => "",
"columnValue" => "".((isset($_POST["email"]))?$_POST["email"]:"") ."",
"columnType" => "text",
"usernameColumn" => "email",
"usernameEncryption" => "",
"passwordColumn" => "password",
"passwordEncryption" => "",
"selectColumns" => array("email","password"),
"sessionVariables" => array(""),
"successRedirect" => "success.php",
"failRedirect" => "fail.php",
"keepQueryString" => FALSE,
"toAddressColumn" => "email",
"toAddressEncryption" => "",
"fromAddress" => "",
"fromAddressDisplay" => "Your Password",
"subject" => "Reseller password",
"mailBody" => "User name: [UserName]\nPassword: [UserPassword]",
"emailFunction" => "WA_SecurityAssist_Email_1_SendMail"

well, "and it doest work" is a very broad statement.

Do you mean to say that it redirects to the success page, but never sends an email?

or that it redirects to the failure page when you enter an email address that exists in the database?

or that you are getting a php error message?

please be specific in what "and it doest work" means.

Also, are you testing locally or testing on the remote server?

If testing locally, it wont be able to send the email unless you install and configure an SMTP server.

If testing remotely, you will need to know the SMTP server email settings for your host, and will need to edit the setting on the email object tab to use the correct SMTP server.

Ahh, sorry about that...

Ok here is the specifics.

No php errors

Im working on localhost, with no SMPT configured. Entering in an email and submitting it redirects me to a failure page.

Maybe I am confused about the tool and all.

My table is

and the securityAssist tool is
Lookup column: email
lookup encryption: none

lookup value: <?php echo ((isset($_POST["email"]))?$_POST["email"]:""); ?>

user name column: email
password column: password

(no encryption on either)

Now, I would guess that it would validate and direct me to the "success" page.. no validation would send me to fail, correct? or does it fail because i dont have email configured at all on localhost?

Yes, it will go to the failure page if it fails to connect to an email server.

You will need to test the email password page on the live server.

also, you need to update the email server settings in the behavior to use the correct SMTP server.
