Hi All,
I've just started using SilverStripe and interested in using it with my current site. I'm looking to make a custom edit password page, so it doesn't have to be done through the CMS backend (or is there another way?). I have tried looking over a couple of things but when it comes to the password salt etc, I'm a bit lost.

To be honest, I have no idea where to start with this page so any help would be brilliant.

Thanks in advance!

All the security actions are based off a controller and not a page. If you want to style the page template then you can define a template Security.ss template file for all the Security pages or if you just want the forgotten password Security_lostpassword.ss will work.

Thanks for that. Is there a way of creating a new page and accessing that controller to perform more custom functions rather than just styling existing pages? I just wanted to create a sort of register and change password page without going through the whole CMS.

If you want to make a custom register page see how the forum module works or the member profiles module - https://github.com/ajshort/silverstripe-memberprofiles. They're good examples of how to do it.
