Bring back text for "Forgot password?" and "Forgot username?"

Bring back text for "Forgot password?" and "Forgot username?"

I just installed v3.0.3 and saw that the "Forgot username?" and "Forgot password?" text and links disappeared.  (I'm coming from v3.0.1)  At first I thought something went wrong with the update.  Then I realized that those links have become "?" icons to the right of username and password:

This is just not as clear or user friendly to me.  I don't think most people will think to hover their cursor over those "?" mark icons or even know what they are.

Is there a configuration option that can override this behavior and bring back the text like it was before:

And if not, can we have one? current/smile

Re: Bring back text for "Forgot password?" and "Forgot username?"

Ya know what? I agree with you. That would be a good option. I've added creating an option for text vs icon as a to-do for the 3.1 release.

Until then, if you want to add it now, you can create a template override by copying the /modules/mod_sclogin/tmpl/joomlaLogin_horizontal.php (or vertical.php) to /templates/sourcecoast/html/mod_sclogin/joomlaLogin_horizontal.php. Then, edit that file. At the bottom you'll see a </fieldset>. Add the following code above that:

Code:

<ul>

<?php
  echo '<li><a href="' . $forgotUsernameLink . '">' . JText::_('MOD_SCLOGIN_FORGOT_USERNAME') . '</a></li>';
  echo '<li><a href="' . $forgotPasswordLink . '">' . JText::_('MOD_SCLOGIN_FORGOT_PASSWORD') . '</a></li>';
?>
</ul>
</fieldset>

That last line is the one already in the file.

I hope that helps get you started. Obviously, you can test and edit those links however you want.

Let us know how it goes and thanks for the feedback,
Alex

Thanks, that's great!  It worked great and will definitely tide me over until v3.1.  It now looks like:

davfis, thanks for asking as I was trying to figure out what I was doing wrong.
alzander, thanks for supplying the patch to make it look familiar. I'm thinking that switch the "?" for "Forgot?" might be helpful; although, I'm not really sure what the best solutions is.

Kevin,
If you come up with anything, let us know current/smile For now, we'll likely add the option for icons, links, or possibly both. I think putting text in those icon fields would take up way too much room and would not be used, so we'll pass on that for now.

Like all software though, we'll implement the above (hopefully in the upcoming 3.1 release) and then tweak, test, solicit feedback and keep improving from there.

Thanks again for your comments. We love hearing any suggestions or feedback you may have!

Alex
