Struggling to find any documentation on how to override Craft's HTML for the forgotten password email.


The documentation can be found here: https://craftcms.com/docs/templating/forgot-password-form

Part of the full templating documentation that starts here: https://craftcms.com/docs/templating/global-variables

The actual HTML side of things is determined by the template you're using, which you can specify in the control panel -> settings -> emails. I believe these settings are considered 'self documenting' in that there are explanations on that page as to what they do.

One thing worth noting is that IIRC you can't extend a layout template with that template, which is a little unfortunate. So I have one general layout for all my general emails and duplicate that fully into the system email template.

    That is just the form and not the email that is sent out to users – Towny1991 May 22 '17 at 6:59
  • I've updated my answer to add where you set the template. – Jeremy Daalder May 22 '17 at 7:36
