XF 2.1 admin password renewal


Active member
as admin;
Let's say I forgot the password.
The admin panel is open, I open the site in another browser. I say I forgot my password. Mail doesn't come, of course. From the open admin panel, I manually enter the Admin password. Your old password gives an erroneous warning. Because I use a password reminder. So I have to open a second admin backup. In this case, the second admin will update my password.

IF the email doesn't come then you need to figure out why. If you don't get it then its most likely no one else gets it unless its going to your spam mailbox instead of inbox.
