Hello again.

This is probably going to be another silly question, so advance apologies for that.

I see there is an option to disallow users password resets, but this doesn't seem to work. The "Forgot Password" link still appears, and the user can still go through the password reset process.

Have I missed something, or is this a bug?

I really need to disable all password reset functionality - all authentication will be handled externally via LDAP.

Thanks!

If you disable "Allow Password Resets" (ACP) the "change password" link will not be shown in Control Panel -> Account Settings.

However, the "Forgot Password" link will still appear. I guess it will be better to also disable it?

That makes sense naudefj, will that be part of the next release or something we should install manually?
