You are recommended to upgrade to Zikula Core 1.2.5 as soon as possible. Please download the latest version from

  • Fixed potential XSS in Users module.
  • Password reset email contains broken link when requested through SSL (issue #2506).
  • Regression - Login function bug for users with special characters since 1.2.x (issue #2273).
  • Problem when editing category registries (issue #2508).

Many thanks to the Zikula Core Development Team and the users who reported these issues.

Enjoy it,
