Need Email Help!

  • Hi! I’m having an issue with my notification emails. When I tested my site, I tested the LOST PASSWORD function, and everything seems to work okay when it sends the link to have you click on it for a request for new password. Then when you get the second email with the new wordpress generated password, it also comes with a link to my site, and when you click on it and enter the wordpress generated password, it redirects you to my dashboard! Can’t have that! How can I change the link that is in the email body of the “new password” email that is sent out? I’m using WP 3.03 with Buddypress, 3 column theme. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!

    Can’t have that!

    Why?

    Because I dont want people having access to my dashboard and admin area.

    Subscribers only get very basic access to their Profiles. Try setting up a test subscriber and logging in with those details to see it.

    Thats what I did was set up a test subscriber and was testing the lost password function…..and it redirects to my admin dashboard. I would like to find out how to change the email link in the email sent out to the ‘new subscriber’ who lost their password and gets an automated wordpress password sent to them.

    Sorry – but what do you want to change the email link to? If you don’t want people to login, what’s the point of sending them a login link?

    There are no security issues with subscribers logging into the Admin area.

    I would like the link in the email to be http://MY SITE.com instead of the http://MYSITE.com/wp-login.php that it is set at now. When I tested new password by just going to the website and doing it, it works just fine. When you click on the automated link (above) that is currently sent through email, it redirects to my admin dashboard for some reason. I figure if I change that link to just read my actual website address, they will be able to log in with new password and be redirected to their profile like I want. Any idea how to change the email message link that is inside the email body? Thanks

    That’s what it is supposed to do by design.

    How? If you don’t want them to access wp-login.php?

    You are seeing your dashboard as you still have your admin cookie so clear your cookies and then try your set subscriber account.

    You should get what your subscribers get on the test account.

    Hi,

    I think what you’re looking for is to redirect your user to your home page after they log in – so they log in but then go to the home page.

    WordPress supports this with a php redirect. So your login link needs to look like this:

    http://www.yoursite.com/wp-login.php?redirect_to=/ (this will redirect to the index or home page of the site) you can set this to anything, for example if you had a page of content for newly logged in users use a link like this – http://www.yoursite.com/wp-login.php?redirect_to=/page_for_logged_in_users/

    To get this into welcome emails use the very handy SB Welcome Email Editor plugin and replace the dynamic login url with the login url you want.

    Hope this helps.

    Simon
