I'm using Mediawiki 1.18.1 with PasswordReset 1.7 (seems to be the latest at the moment). The result is a PHP Fatal Error about Xml::hidden that is solved by replacing Xml with Html in the file PasswordReset_body.php.
Version tested is: 1.19alpha (Version 93922), here the link during login "Forgotten your login details?" points to a form
Reset password: Complete this form to receive an e-mail reminder of your account details. Username: [ ] [e-mail new password].
which is the page: Special:PasswordReset. This page exists WITHOUT Extension:Password Reset being installed. It seems a (different) core functionality uses the same special page name now? Any insights?
Could someone confirm it was working with versions 1.15-1.17? Just post here if you can - thank you!
Just for public record, issue was already discussed with SPQRobin: While it is correct that the extension is no longer working, this leaves many users without an option to upgrade to 1.18, since the functionality of the extension (admins reset passwords for internal wikis where no email is known, either because not necessary internally, or because authentication methods like OpenID are used) is not covered by the core functionality. See https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30636 . Should the notice box be different? It is not obsolete in the sense of "no longer needed", but obsolete in the sense "needed, but made impossible to function".
Just to add: as maintainer of the OpenID-Extension I recently added a method to reset passwords even if there is no password (when users created their account by OpenID account creation, which does not set a password by default). The OpenID version (trunk) works stable with MediaWiki trunk.
