Request from Joomla to reset password

If you have lost your Joomla password, you can request from Joomla to send you an email with a link to a password reset page. Your administrator login page does not have such a function, but your frontend login page does.

-But I don’t have a frontend login, you might say.

-Yes you do, is my reply.

Just type in the URL http://[]/index.php?option=com_user&view=login and you will arrive at your frontend login page containing two links for request of login information:

  • Forgot your Password?
  • Forgot your Username?

Just click the first one if you forgot your password. This will take you to a password reset page. Just follow the instruction and you are back on track.



Worked professionally with Joomla! CMS since its birth in 2005. Today, I work more with WordPress, even though I'm following what happens in the Joomla world with much interest and still consider it a great CMS. Would love if you connect with me!
