Password Change Form Design Area

Last Updated: 12 Apr 2017

This design area allows you to add a password change form into the design. If the user has an account, they will be able to enter their current password and a new password to replace it with.

Below is an example of the code that is required for the Password Change Form design area. In the example, the password change form will be hidden by default and only shown when the current user's status is set to Up For Review, which will also hide the body of the current front end asset.

<MySource_AREA id_name="password_change_form" design_area="password_change_form" print="no">
  <MySource_PRINT var="system_messages" />
  <MySource_PASSWORD_CHANGE_SECTION>
    <h2><MySource_PRINT var="password_change_heading" /></h2>
    <MySource_PRINT var="form_open" />
      <p><MySource_PRINT var="password_change_message" /></p>
      <MySource_PRINT var="password_old_box" size="10" /><br/>
      <MySource_PRINT var="password_new_box" size="10" /><br/>
      <MySource_PRINT var="password_confirm_box" size="10" /><br/>
      <MySource_PRINT var="submit_button"/><br />
      <p><MySource_PRINT var="password_rules_note"/></p>
    <MySource_PRINT var="form_close" />
  </MySource_PASSWORD_CHANGE_SECTION>
</MySource_AREA>

<MySource_AREA id_name="body" design_area="body" print="no"/>
<MySource_AREA id_name="match_home" design_area="show_if">
    <MySource_SET name="condition" value="keyword_regexp"/>
    <MySource_SET name="condition_keyword" value="globals_user_status_description"/>
    <MySource_SET name="condition_keyword_match" value="review" />
    <MySource_THEN>
        <MySource_PRINT id_name="password_change_form" />
    </MySource_THEN>
    <MySource_ELSE>
        <MySource_PRINT id_name="body" />
    </MySource_ELSE>
</MySource_AREA>

  • form_open: this variable stats the password change form by printing the HTML <form> tag. This is required for this design area.
