    How can I change the Lost Password, Get Password button text.
    It is inaccurate, as no password is actually sent.
    Rather, a 36-hour time-limited link for the member user to change their password is sent in an email.

    I looked into the Configuration Forms Editor, but the only forms there are for Signup and Profile.
    Neither of which (I think) are the same as the Lost Password screen.

    I did a text search, found the file language\user\default.php which has one line as:
    'Get Password' => 'Get Password',
    But I do not know if this is what I should change or is there a better way? and which side should be changed, if either...

    And also,
    how to change the text of the Result displayed which states that "Your password has been e-mailed to you. Please check your mailbox." When as I say an email with a link has been sent.

    (Perhaps some folks do have their system to send passwords. In our setup, which I think is plain vanilla, the user gets sent a LINK to change their password themselves.
    Which is a better security process anyway.

    Thank you.

    Thanks Caesar,
    I looked at that.
    Translation field on the right can be modified.
    Search for "Get Password". Record found:
    Base/original: Get Password
    Translation/new: Reset Password.​
    I changed to new wording.
    Check/verify: Yes, now on the http://xxxxxxxxxxxxx/amember/login "Lost Password?" page,
    the button now shows: "Reset Password".
    Good,
    Thanks.
    (I attached screen snap, just for any folks to see the two steps)
