How to Delete Joomla’s Forget Username and Forget Password Links?

The login form of Joomla always has the links for Forget Username and Forget Password below. However, if users do not wish to use these functions, there is a way to easily get rid of them.

In this article, we will know the exact way to remove Joomla’s Forget Username and Forget Password Links. We apply it on the latest version of Joomla, Joomla 3.6.2.

This is how a Joomla's default login form looks like:

1. Delete the links from Users component

- Firstly, please go to Templates > Templates > Open the Details and Files Preview of the template you are using.

- Go to tab “Create Overrides” to create an override by following Components > com_users > login

- There is now a message informing that the override has been successfully created in html\com_users\login

- In tab “Editor”, please go to html > com_users > login > Open "default_login.php"

- Remove the code from line 93 – 100:

<li>
            <a href="/blog/<?php echo JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_users&view=reset'); ?>">
            <?php echo JText::_('COM_USERS_LOGIN_RESET'); ?></a>
        </li>
        <li>
            <a href="/blog/<?php echo JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_users&view=remind'); ?>">
            <?php echo JText::_('COM_USERS_LOGIN_REMIND'); ?></a>
</li>

2. Delete the links from Login module

- Please go to Templates > Templates > Open the Details and Files Preview of the template you are using

- In tab “Create Overrides”, go to Module > mod_login

- There is now a message informing that the override has been successfully created in html > mod_login.

- In tab “Editor”, please go to html > mod_login > Open "default.php"

- Remove the code from line 105-112:

<li>
                    <a href="/blog/<?php echo JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_users&view=remind&Itemid=' . UsersHelperRoute::getRemindRoute()); ?>">
                    <?php echo JText::_('MOD_LOGIN_FORGOT_YOUR_USERNAME'); ?></a>
                </li>
                <li>
                    <a href="/blog/<?php echo JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_users&view=reset&Itemid=' . UsersHelperRoute::getResetRoute()); ?>">
                    <?php echo JText::_('MOD_LOGIN_FORGOT_YOUR_PASSWORD'); ?></a>
</li>
