    Yes. ProfilePress handles all that. Give it a try and let me know if you encountered any problem.

    For the best of experience, I advice you upgrade to any of the paid plans.

    I have tried the plugin but I do not think it will do what I want

    Just to be clear. I want the email that is sent out by WP when a new user is created to have a Special URL that goes to PP – Login

    I have tried this with the plugin set up and it is part succesful

    Two URL’s are sent out Automatically by WordPress


    Clicking the Top URL goes to the normal WP Screen where a New user is shown a new password and ask to reset their PWD

    Clicking the Second URL goes to the PP_Login page set by the plugin.

    Hopefully there is a way to also change the top URL to go to PP Login screen?

    When ProfilePress is activated, it rewrite the wp-login.php to the custom login set.

    In your code that generate the password reset url, change wp-login.php to your password reset your page slug like so;

    Opening the link will show a form to update the password on the frontend of your site.

    Have tried to find the WP default code and found the string in Pluggable.php

    /* translators: %s: user login */
    $message = sprintf(__(‘Username: %s’), $user->user_login) . “\r\n\r\n”;
    $message .= __(‘To set your password, visit the following address:’) . “\r\n\r\n”;
    $message .= ‘<‘ . network_site_url(“wp-login.php?action=rp&key=$key&login=” . rawurlencode($user->user_login), ‘login’) . “>\r\n\r\n”;

    Have changed to
    $message .= ‘<‘ . network_site_url(“pp-login.php?action=rp&key=$key&login=” . rawurlencode($user->user_login), ‘login’) . “>\r\n\r\n”;

    Tried clicking on the generated email link but get a 404

    Note: pp-login.php works in the WP-config file and clicking the bottom link on the email goes to the login page.

    Have I not done it correctly?

    There is no pp-login.php in ProfilePress or WordPress core.

    Upgrade to the paid version of ProfilePress and this will automatically be handled for you.
