Password reset link only shows url (5 posts)

    I am managing a site that has an employee portal. When not logged in, it brings up the page to login to the portal. Where there is supposed to be a password reset link on the bottom of the form, there is instead the url for resetting the password. There is no hyperlink, so the url has to be copy/pasted into the address bar to get to the page.

    I am wondering how to edit the login form so that I can actually make the url a link that says "Forgot Password?" then generates the form to reset a user's password. If I cannot edit it directly, what must I do in order for the link to show up?

    Thanks

    I should add that the url says the following:

    http://domain.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

    That's the default that is generated by WordPress, so it would have something to do with however you are getting the login to display (which would have to be the WP default for it to be that).

    I would suggest you review the plugin documentation regarding using the plugin's login form instead. There is a page shortcode for that:

    Chad,

    I used the shortcode to create a login page, but the page still has the url at the bottom. Even if I set a registration page in the WP-members settings, it shows the same thing.

    How would I go about removing that from the form (if it is even part of the login form)?

    You would have to find out where it is coming from in order to remove it. It is not coming from the WP-Members plugin. If you have some other registration/login plugin and or some customization where you are echoing something like wp_lostpassword_url, that would be where you need to look.
