Hi Guys

Security/changepassword upon completion redirects to Security/login. This is quite redundant as the user would already be logged in. Is there any wat to change this page to Redirect home for example. I attempted BackURL in the form action without joy.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

You can make a custom class that extends ChangePasswordForm.php – and override the doChangePassword-function. Inside this function there is a line which redirects the user.

Actually currently (2.4.3) you can extend ChangePasswordForm and then use Object::useCustomClass as joel suggests, but it will not be picked up.

The above method works fine for MemberLoginForm as when that is called in MemberAuthenticator it uses Object::create instead of new MemberLoginForm.

The work around is to fix Security line 589 which in my opinion should use Object::create not new ChangePasswordForm.

However since its A VERY BAD IDEA TO EDIT THE CORE, simple create a new class called CustomSecurity which extends Security and then add a rule in mysite/config.php

Director::addRules(11, array(
	'Security//$Action/$ID/$OtherID' => 'CustomSecurity',

The rule above overrides the rule in Sapphire/_config because the priority is 11 which outranks 10.

class CustomSecurity extends Security {

	 * Factory method for the lost password form
	 * @return Form Returns the lost password form
	public function ChangePasswordForm() {
		return Object::create('ChangePasswordForm', $this, 'ChangePasswordForm');
