Hi,

Is that possible to change the 'Subject' of the default passwordreset email template without touching the original code?

I found the code reside in Sapphire/Security/Member.php as show below:

/**
* Class used as template to send the forgot password email
* @package sapphire
* @subpackage security
*/
class Member_ForgotPasswordEmail extends Email {
protected $from = ''; // setting a blank from address uses the site's default administrator email
protected $subject = '';
protected $ss_template = 'ForgotPasswordEmail';

function __construct() {
      parent::__construct();
   $this->subject = _t('Member.SUBJECTPASSWORDRESET', "Your password reset link", PR_MEDIUM, 'Email subject');
}
}

You can create your own custom Member_ForgotPasswordEmail and tell to use your class.

..

class MyMember_ForgotPasswordEmail extends Member_ForgotPasswordEmail {

function __construct() {
parent::__construct();

$this->subject = "Hi!";
}
}
..

In your _config.php

Object::useCustomClass('Member_ForgotPasswordEmail', 'MyMember_ForgotPasswordEmail');
