Reset Password Error

Postby davidsorfa » Sat Dec 21, 2013 7:16 am

The "reset password" system has not been working for quite a while, through a number of upgrades. We are currently on 2.3.7.

The reset email goes out fine, but when the user clicks the link in the email, they get this error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method: userdao->getbyusername() in .../htdocs/lib/pkp/pages/login/ on line 231

Is there a fix for this? It would be a great help.

Thank you.

Hi David,

Something is unusual with your code -- line 231 of on OJS 2.3.7 should be a blank. The closest match is line 227, which should read...

Code: Select all

if ($username == null || ($user =& $userDao->getUserByUsername($username)) == null) {
Note that the function call is getUserByUsername, not getByUsername.

I suspect you've somehow mixed code from different versions.
