I Want To Mail All Users A Password Reset Link

    @david-

    I would like to mail all my registered users a password reset link. How do I go about this? Or if there’s currently a plugin for this, kindly point me in the right direction.

    Thanks,

    Dave.

    Woah!

    Offtopic – Why the need?

    I just converted from smf => Phpbb => bbpress, and the passwords aren’t working unless they request for a password reset.

    Most members keep mailing to complain about this. I want to just send the whole thing to them once and for all.

    In this instance, i would write a script that set a new password for them, and emailed them it. (can/should be done outwith bbPress).

    In the email i’d tell them why they are getting it, and suggest that they log in and choose a new one.

    It’s not ideal, but this isn’t really a common siutaiton so i doubt there’s a plugin for it.

    Sure! Are you looking for a paid job? Mail me – ashishsainiashfame[at]gmail<dot>com

    Else someone with free time might be able to do it.

    look at the bulk password reset for wordpress and see if you can adapt it

    I shared my user table with a wordpress in order to use the “bulk password reset” for wordpress

    its better to have a reset password link so that the user can choose thier favorite password.
