I am trying to override /components/com_users/models/reset.php
I have tried numerous pathways to, but cannot get the site to look at it.
During testing, when I edit core file: /components/com_users/models/reset.php
it works as expected, but oviously, I do not want to edit core files and need to override reset.php
Any ideas ?
FYI: The changes I have made to reset.php is to simplify the password reset procedure for my users. I have included the Username in the email users get when they request a password reset. I understand that some think this may be a security issue, however I do not. Username is retrievable anyway if you have thee mail address, so why not include it in the email to assist users. The fact is that most users who forget their password ALSO forget their username, and currently the process of retrieving both is too hard for average Joe user. IF anyone is interested in how I did it, Id be happy to post about it. But I first need to get this override working.
