    The lost password link in the login page goes to

    www.example.com/?action=lostpassword which shows up "Not Found".

    The login and the register links work perfectly though. btw I am using the latest version of wordpress, plugin and buddypress

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Btw I found that the version

      6.1.4 works

    - so looks like the update to 6.2 changed something that nixed the lost password functionality. I will continue using this version until its fixed in future releases

    Thanks for the awesome plugin :)

    I´m not using Buddypress but I have the same problem with the "lost password" link on the widget.

    The link redirects to:

    And I think it should redirect to:

    Furthermore, if you use the login page like a "child page" and want to customize the Lost Password permalink, you can´t, because it doesn´t work...

    Uncheck the options to "Allow Registration" and "Allow Password Recovery" in the widget settings. Then, those links will direct to the Login page instead.

    As for the permalinks, you should be able to specify the parent in the permalink as well (e.g. "/parent/lostpassword").

    Jeff, thanks for the tips!

    What @oshi related also happens to me: when you fill a wrong password, you get redirected for the blog posts, with this URL:

    The right template is loaded inside the widget, not on the page...

    Hi @ Cristiano you can try to use a Plugin: Redirection by John Godley

    What you can do is redirect the ?ction=lostpassword&instance=1"
    to your login page. this will avoid from send visitor from viewing a list of you blogs.

    but they is a problem though? witch is when a user trys to login it wont log them in but direct them to another login page or wrong password page, and then they can login from there. thats another issue am facing for trying to avoid the " to many direction times out loading"
