How does a user figure out their lost username if they forget their password?

edited March 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
let's say I am a user.

I forgot my password.

I click the password form, and Vanilla asks for my username. Darn it. Bad Day for this user. I forgot my username too.

Now what?

Is there away to have a user look up their username via the email address?

I didn't see anything, and I am wondering if I missed it.



  • if they have access to the forum (not forced to log in to see the forum), they can search for users by their email address.
  • Thanks, but that is only if the user elects to show the email address. correct? or am I missing something?
  • hmmm, I guess you're right... i put something about this in the duplicate email check addon's discussion.. it would need to be an addon, and without a duplicate email checker, there would be no point in being able to reset a password by email. (
