Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code  

This will replace the 'Help' button next to your login boxes with a 'Forgotten Password?' button, making it easier for your members to reset their password.

To do this, all you have to do, is edit your 'header' template.

Go to: Admincp > Styles & Templates > Style manager > Edit templates > Show Thread templates > header

In the header template, Find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Voila! That easy!

It will go from:



To this:



The only difference to the image above when using the vb phrase is that it says 'Forgotten Your Password?' rather than ' Forgotten Password?' which would make more sense really :P
Although its totally your choic depending on how much space you want to use. Is so just remove the following line and replace with what you want between the arrows:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you wish to keep your 'Help' button just add this code above or beneath to suit your needs.

To get the little user icon and padlock images for your login area, use this mod.

This is very useful but I agree, why get rid of the help option?
Just add this mod immediately above the line of code to be replaced - so that it is there as well, and you have both lost password AND help.

Keep on eye on the vbulletin updates though as some updates won't merge the templates so you may need to re-apply the code.

Sorry for the late reply, been away for a long time.

I have changed the mod to suit this It would make more sense to have it this way.

Depends on how much space of the header you are willing to give up without it looking too cramped

It didn't worked for me, it started showing the whole {raw forgotten etc etc etc } in the button, I ended up taking it out and replaced with the old Help but now the button shrunk and the word Help cannot be seen.

Help!.

Then you are not doing this properly, or you are using a comletely custom style on your forums.
I have tested this mod in a range of different enviroments and has worked every time.
