Right now when a user resets a password, it is handled by bp_settings_action_general function in the /bp-settings/bp-settings-actions.php file.

There are no hooks that allows plugin authors to perform additional validation when a user resets password. A sample scenario is a plugin that prevents users from using in-secure passwords.

Would there be interest in this? If yes, then I can try to add some hooks to enable additional validation on passwords.

@sudar Patches are always most welcome, collaboration and contribution is the life blood of projects like this.

As a general rule of thumb I would have said adding hooks for functions can never be a bad thing especially if it allows BP to be extended.

The idea seems sound so I would suggest running up a patch uploading it to this ticket and a core committer will review and help the patch along if needed.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
