Required Attributes


Optional Attributes

  • email_template - if you would like to customize the E-Mails, provide here a path to the filename for the E-Mail template to use. You will need to create two files: one HTML and one plain text. Users who disable HTML on their email clients will see the plain text version, while everyone else will see the HTML email. For example, if you set email_template="/forgot", then these files will be called forgot.html and forgot.txt.html and go in the root of your FTP. Inside these files you may include <v:text placeholder="password" /> as a placeholder for where the new password will go.

  • redirect - if specified, users will be redirected to this page once the form is submitted.

Since this tag generates an HTML <form> tag, you may also use any standard HTML attributes that are valid in the <form> tag. These will be passed through unchanged into the generated tag.
