Hi, all. I just launched a DNN 7.3.2 site with 70,000 users, using the Advanced (extensionless) URL setting in web.config. The Password Reset function is broken, and I'm wondering: 1) would enabling FriendlyURLs cause Password Reset to function properly? 2) is there anything I can do fix the Reset problem other than waiting for 7.3.4? I would experiment first, but the site is very active right now, and I don't want to change anything unless it will fix the problem... Thanks.

you may simply try using "humanfriendly" urls.
Are you using English language or a language pack?

Thanks for the reply. I'm using the English language. Does setting "humanfriendly" URLs fix the Password Reset problem? I've searched, but there seems to be no direct answer to that question.

Testing on my site(s) indicates that the Reset works only part of the time in "advanced" mode. If there is no benefit to the humanfriendly method, I'd prefer to leave things as they are.

you'll have to test, whether humanfriendly urls fix your issue - but future enhancements will be most likely made to advanced mode. However, any bug can only be fixed, if the developers get hold of it, i.e. it gets logged at support.dnnsoftware.com.

Thanks. I prefer the advanced mode, and I understand the Password Reset bug has already been logged, with a fix projected for 7.3.4.

I love the DNN platform. I've been working with it for more than 10 years, and it's awesome. However, the recent spate of password reset problems has caused some real pain.

Last year, I relaunched a community site on DNN 7.2.x with 800 users who needed to reset their passwords. The bug was fixed in 7.2.2. Now, believing that the function was working properly, I relaunched an e-commerce site on DNN 7.3.2 with 70,000 users - many of whom want to change their passwords. I'm doing a lot of manual resets and praying that 7.3.4 gets released soon.
