Description

When you go to "User login" and then "Reset password" on home page (http://www.osgeo.org/home) there is wrong (old?) form which dosen't work.

It should be https://www.osgeo.org/cgi-bin/ldap_password_reset.py

Confirmed. The website uses the LDAP based OSGeo Userid, so that's the reset script that would work.

I'm sorry, perhaps I am dense, but I couldn't seem to find the reset password link on the main home page even after logging in. Can you provide additional context? I'm not sure if I'll be able to fix it anyways, as I believe last time I saw it, the feature was a Drupal builtin.

I think you need to logout and then fail a login before you get that link. It did look like a builtin indeed.

I dug into the LDAP configuration settings and found a place where I could disable the form. The request new password tab now contains "Form disabled by administrator". I had hoped I could replace the old text with a link to the new reset form, but the replacement text seemed to locked.
