Password Reset Direct link

Is there anyway to get direct access to the password reset page?
Currently you have to visit the login page and click ‘Forgot your password’ first. I’m just wanting to remove a step for the user.
I thought /panel/reset-password/ would go directly to it but that’s a different process.

Is that for a frontend login?

No for Panel access.
I’m sending an email to the new admin user via a hook when I’ve created their account.
Ideally wanted them to create a new password without having to send them one, hense the need for a link to the ‘forgot your password’ form/page.

A direct link to the password reset form is currently not available, but what you could do is to build a custom route like so (untested):


use Kirby\Http\Response;

return [
  'routes' => [
      'pattern' => 'reset-password/(:any)',
      'action'  => function ($email) {
        try {
          kirby()->auth()->createChallenge($email, false, 'password-reset');
        } catch (\Exception $e) {
          return new Response($e->getMessage(), 'text/plain', 400);

        return Response::redirect('panel/login');

Then you can send users a link like and they will be sent directly to the entry form for the password reset code.
