Thanks.
 
I already knew that the ForgetPassword() method was not what I was looking for; hence, why I wrote the following in my post:
 
"I thought I'd touch base, though, to see if there's a 'Forgot Password?' feature.  I haven't found that yet."
 
Your response confirms what I thought; viz., that we need to roll our own 'Forgot Password?' feature.
 
It seems to me that the easiest way to implement this feature is to do something like the following:
  1. have a 'Forgot Password?' button which, when pressed, does 2 things: a) populates a Temporary Password column in the Users table (the same table that houses the Username and Password columns); b) automatically e-mails the Temporary Password to the user (alternatively [i.e., less automated], someone would have to manually contact the user to let them know their temporary password)
  2. when the user subsequently logs in, if they have a Temporary Password in addition to a regular password, then they would immediately be prompted to enter a new (i.e., different) password; after a successful login, the Temporary Password column would be blanked out so that only the (regular) Password column would be used for comparison purposes thereafter
Thanks again.

The ForgetPassword method is not what you think: The method removes a cookie from the browser to invalidate a previously selected "Remember me" option. Please refer to the documentation for additional details.
 
FoxWeb does not provide native password reset functionality, but you can definitely add it yourself. All the tools are available for this -- the most time consuming part will be the UI, but even that is pretty simple.

Hi,
 
I see that FoxWeb has a ForgetPassword() method: 
 
  Auth.ForgetPassword() 
 
I thought I'd touch base, though, to see if there's a 'Forgot Password?' feature.
 
I haven't found that yet.
 
Thanks in adva\nce for any insights,
