Password Reset Handling

Gatekeeper also includes some password reset handling functionality. It doesn't try to send an email or output a web page with the functionality. Instead, it provides methods to generate and validate a unique code. When the code is generated, it is added into the user's record and stored for evaluation.

The code will expire in one hour from the time it was generated.

$user = Gatekeeper::findUserById(1);
$code = $user->getResetPasswordCode();

echo 'Your password reset code is: '.$code."\n";

// Now lets verify it...
$code = $_GET['code'];
if ($user->checkResetPasswordCode($code) === true) {
    echo 'valid!';

If the code is valid, it and the timeout are cleared from the user's record.
