This component is now finally available for Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.

I have gotten a bit frustrated with the Joomla reset password functions.
In Joomla 1.5 there was a horrendous invalid token bug. And in Joomla 3.2 the reset password function is broken altogether.

Besides that, I never really liked that users had to copy and paste the token manually.

Out of  this frustration I created a new component that handles the reset password process. There is also a plugin that needs to be activated.

When the plugin is activated, it attempts to replace the Joomla default forgot password link with a link to this component.

This was mainly written for my own Joomla websites but I decided to provide it as a free download in the hope that it might be useful for others as well.
