Perhaps I am stuck in HTML land, but I cannot seem to figure out why WP ignores my links.
I created a new registration form and put the necessary code into a file named 'register.php' which is located in the /wp-content/themes/my_theme directory. My header includes a small form which changes between showing the abbreviated user info when logged in and a small login form when not logged in. This works successfully and is called via
<?php include('/login.php'); ?>
At the bottom of this form are two links allowing a user to either register as a new member or receive a password hint/reset. Since these are actual links, I currently have the code set as:
<p><a href="<?php network_home_url(); ?>/register.php">Register</a> or <a href="<?php network_home_url(); ?>/reset.php">reset your password</a></p>
However, upon clicking either of the links, rather than navigating to the register.php or pass_hint.php files, the server loads the index.php file. I am sure that I am missing some fundamental (and simple) way that WP navigates and looks for files.
Can anyone help with this?
