"Forget Password" post reminds me...

Is there a site where one can download free open-source "components" to do common tasks such as "forgot your password"?

I maybe be living in fantasy-land here... but it would be absolutely wonderful if such a site existed...

There are literally thousands of sites to get free source code for web applications.  http://www.hotscripts.com and http://www.aspfree.com come to mind.

If you want strictly "open sores", try http://www.sourceforge.net .

Well, when you say "open source", that leaves a lot of questions out there, but I'll hit what I know.

For PHP, if you are developing using classes, you can find a lot of free pre-written classes at http://www.phpclasses.org and also look into PEAR: http://pear.php.net

For ASP, there is a much smaller pool of "free" stuff, but I enjoy the ASP Resource Index: http://www.aspin.com
