No changes are needed for 3.8.x
Go here (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=194690) for the 3.8.x MOD

Even in this little community (http://www.topsynergy.net/), we are getting around three request each week from members to send them their forgotten password.

Without questioning too much why hasn't the second-to-none vBulletin provide so far the extra "Forgot Password?" link in NavBar, here's a simple template edit to provide better accessibility to the Forgot Password page:

In this new version 1.1, we've also added a Join Us link on the same line thanks to gbechtel (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=108649)'s great suggestion.


Instructions for fresh install:

Search for the following script in navbar template:

<td><input type="submit" class="button" value="$vbphrase[log_in]" tabindex="104" title="$vbphrase[enter_username_to_login_or_register]" accesskey="s" /></td>
</tr>


and enter below the following code:

<!-- Forgot Password Line Starts -->
<tr>
<td colspan="2">
<a style="font-size:8pt; color: red;" href="login.php?do=lostpw">Forgot Password?</a>
</td>
<td style="text-align: right;">
<a style="font-size:8pt; color: red;" href="register.php">Join Us!</a>
</td>
</tr>
<!-- Forgot Password Line Ends -->



;) You can replace the color expression "color: red;" to any other color that you like. Here's a nice html color table (http://www.w3schools.com/HTML/html_colornames.asp).

;) You may also like to set another font size in the expression "font-size:8pt;" to: font-size:9pt;, font-size:10pt; etc.

Instructions for upgrade from previous version:

Search for the following script in navbar template:

<!-- Forgot Password Line Starts -->



and replace everything from the start tag to the end with:

<!-- Forgot Password Line Starts -->
<tr>
<td colspan="2">
<a style="font-size:8pt; color: red;" href="login.php?do=lostpw">Forgot Password?</a>
</td>
<td style="text-align: right;">
<a style="font-size:8pt; color: red;" href="register.php">Join Us!</a>
</td>
</tr>
<!-- Forgot Password Line Ends -->



That's all there is to it folks :)

Please do not forget to rate, mark installed, or even nominate (not for this elementary mode but for filling in on an importent issue) :)

You're welcome.

P.S. You may like to fix the URL in your signature line. Nice forum though:)

EDIT:

In FF it is good, but in IE it shows:

Forgot Password? | Sign
Up!

Notice it goes on a 2nd line.

Anyideas for a way to fix this?

I'm going to use this just to add the forgot password thing, because currently, vBulletin has a major usability problem in that you have to get the password wrong to reset the password...

Just don't forget to change:
<td colspan="2">
to
<td colspan="3">

if you omit the second <td>...</td> lines.

Thanks for the complement, but I won't be happy with this solution until a seasoned coder will help me to create a hook-based plugin, with no manual template modification.

Nice!

We can surely enjoy your conditional enhancement. What is the idea behind it, if I may ask?
