CoursePress lost password

Hi,

I would like that the page “Lost Password” ( https://website.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword ) to be within the theme and not go to the wordpress page, how could I do it?

Thanks

    Hello xavi

    I hope you’re well today and thank you for your question!

    The CoursePress plugin doesn’t include any “lost password recovery” feature and it doesn’t hook to native WP code to “overtake” it and that’s why it’s a link to a regular “wp-login.php” lost password form.

    I agree that it would be nice if everything could take place directly in the CoursePress login/signup and that would make a cool feature so I’m moving this ticket to our “Features & Feedback” forum as a feature request. If more Members of our community will support that idea, our developer might put that on a “to do” list for future releases.

    However, I think there’s a workaround until then and it seems to be doable with a little help of an additional plugin. Here’s how to do it:

    1. Download, install and activate this plugins:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/frontend-reset-password/

    2. Create a new page (a regular WP page) on your site (e.g. “Lost Password”:wink: and put this shortcode on it:

    [reset_password]

    Note down the full URL of that page!

    3. Go to “Plugins -> Frontend Reset Password” page in site’s back-end and from the “Reset Password Page” drop-down list select your newly created “Lost Password” page and save settigns.

    That’s all. This should “overtake” regular WP “lost password” URL and while it still won’t be within CoursePress form, it will keep users on front-end as any “lost password” link should now lead to the page that you created.

    Best regards,

    Adam
