    I can't think of any easy way to do it.

    You could make "forgot password" (maybe "Trouble logging in?" would be better) a link to your own page with a snippet that would validate the username and email, then send a new activation link (with code borrowed from the Register snippet).

    Personally, though, if I were having this trouble often, I'd consider extending the time limit to several days, or even a week, with the &activationttl property of the Register snippet.

      thanks again Bob! appreciate your time & responses.

      i agree. i'll just up that time & let it play out & see what happens.

      that gives me an idea tho - i think i will change the text to "Trouble logging in?" & customize the forgot pwd page to add some text of common problems (that are usually user-error) with suggestions on what to do. hopefully that will also cut down on my time.

        The dirty little secret is that login extra is probably the most in need of re-writing, because its so basic and important, and because its quite finicky and often comes up with random problems.
