Custom Password Reset Page (2 posts)

    Hi Folks,

    I'm currently moving a site from joomla to wordpress.

    I've searched and found a couple of threads on this issue, but nothing seems to be properly resolved so far.

    My problem lies mainly in the fact that when the site goes live, there will be 500 users that will need to reset their passwords.

    One thing I'm having trouble figuring out is how to keep users away from the wp-login.php page.

    I have a login form on the site now, as well as a registration form.

    Here's my final dillema.

    When someone inputs the wrong password for their account, they are redirected to the default wp-login.php page. How do I prevent this and have it redirect to a page on the site that includes this login form?

    The second issue is when users cannot remember their password, they are required to use the default wp-login.php page to access the password reset form. How can I incorporate this function so that people never get redirected to the default wp-login.php page?

    Thanks,
    Dave
