[Resolved] Lost Password, Link In Email Not Valid (key), ‘Fix’ Does Not Work
I am using WordPress 2.5.1. I wish I never upgraded. First of all, I have a plug-in on my blog so that all my members have to register. Now there is an issue with 2.5.1 where if a member looses their password and click the ‘Forgotten Password’ link, the link in the email states “Sorry, that key does not appear to be valid.”
I started researching this on the internet. I found a couple of sites stating the same thing. Once of them stated that WordPress was already aware of the issue. So I looked into going to WordPress bug site Trac. I found the bug report and apparently the fix. See here: http://trac.wordpress.org/changeset/7837
I thought this was great. I followed the instructions exactly and edited my php files. Uploaded them, no success. Still the same weird characters. I cleared my cookies and cache, tried again. Still same issue. I removed the files completely, then downloaded the files from Trac thinking I might’ve done something wrong with editing the php files myself. Uploaded and still the same issue.
I realise other people are having this issue and are locked out of their blog. I’m not locked out of my blog, my users are and I realise I can manually change their passwords but I really do not want to do that. I would rather fix this issue. Is there something I am doing wrong?
I’m not sure what to do next. I hear they will be releasing 2.5.2 soon because of this issue, but obviously no-one knows when this could be. I really would like to fix this ASAP.
Thank you for reading.
