Change password via front-end... plugin? (3 posts)

    I have a site that does not require any user (all subscribers) to see the WP back-end (as far as posting anything etc).

    I basically just use the registration / login to show specific content to registered users. I redirect the user after login to a front-end 'members area'. It all works fine.

    But, I would like to give users a chance to at least change their password from the initial WP generated one that get emailed to them. Is there a front-end widget or plug-in that anyone knows about that I can use rather than completely re-skin the back end templates for this one feature? Or some sample php to help me achieve this?

    I've had a good search and turned up nothing.

    OK, this is hilarious. I figured I would just let them into the back-end (to change their password) via a link from the 'members area' so long as they went to the members area immediately after login. BUT now I can't for the life of me remember how I got the redirect to happen. I built this a while ago... I have no plugins for this (I know they exist)

    Where else might I look for a redirect URL? I didn't touch the WP core functionality.

    The thing is, now even when I try to link directly to the profile page in the back-end, it redirects to the front-end members area.

    Maybe in the .htaccess?
