Support » Plugin: Network Subsite User Registration » Password reset not working

  • Resolved polger



    The new user process is fine. User is kept in the subsite or mapped domain.
    However, the lost password process is broken.

    The login screen shows a lost password link at the bottom, but its missing the ?action=lostpassword query variable. So the link only reloads the same login form.

    Upon a failed login, another lost password link appears at the top, missing the ?action=lostpassword query variable. And the link at the bottom now points to the main site, not the subsite (or mapped domain).

    If I manually add the ?action=lostpassword query variable, a form prompts for the username or email address. But after submission, you are taken to the main site login page.

    The email received for password reset, contains a link to the main site login page (instead of the subsite), and it has no query variable or token to actually reset the password.

    Best Regards.

    Thanks for the info. I’ll have a look at that in my next quieter moment.



    The following hack works with my configuration:

    In wp-includes/link-template.php change

    if ( ! is_multisite() ) {


    if ( is_multisite() ) {

    Hi @polger I’ve just released version 2.9 which resolves the issues you found.
    for your edit/changes to the wp-includes/link-template.php file, its not a good idea to change the core WordPress files as you will have to redo whenever a new version of WordPress gets rolled out.

    Great! I will take a look these days.
    Thank you!

    I installed version 3.1, and the Lost your Password link on the login page points to the main site.

    If I manually enter the the page displays properly. The form action points to the main domain.

    Any advise?
