Login form – lost password link goes to wordpress login

  • Run 9c0173c823a79fc74e27194373b071b8happy

    I have problems with the lost password on the login form. When I (deliberately) put in the wrong password, a red error box pops up with the following:

    “Error: The password you entered for the email address [my email address] is incorrect. Lost password?

    That’s great – however, when I click on the “lost your password” link, it links to the wordpress admin lost password page:


    so its redirecting to wp-login rather than lost password page in UM – my password reset page exists: http://www.ultractiveruncoaching.co.uk/password-reset/ but the link to error does not link to this page.

    Can anyone help?

    Hi @runhap

    Have you checked if the UM pages are correctly assigned in the UM settings?

    Please go to WP Admin > Ultimate Member > Settings > General > Pages.

    Thanks for the quick response yes all pages are correctly assigned

    The password reset page says “password reset” and this has not been changed.

    Can you do a conflict test and see if the issue goes away? This doc explains how to do a conflict test if you are not sure: How to do a plugin/theme conflict test?

    Hi @runhap

    Please try adding this code snippet to change the Lost Password URL:

    add_filter(‘lostpassword_url’, ‘um_012721_lostpassword_url’, 10); function um_012721_lostpassword_url($url) { if(! function_exists(“um_get_core_page”)) return $url; return um_get_core_page(“password-reset”); }

    You can use this plugin to run code snippets: https://wordpress.org/plugins/code-snippets/

El enlace de contraseña perdida no funciona: dirige a /lost-password


  1. WordPress Default Lost Password Feature
  2. Potential Reason and Solution

lost wordpress password link

Los miembros que pierden su contraseña o necesitan restablecer una contraseña por cualquier motivo pueden ser comunes para los sitios de membresía. Con tantos miembros iniciando sesión , algunos miembros olvidarán su contraseña de vez en cuando. Nos sucede a todos en algún momento, por lo que un proceso de restablecimiento de contraseña sin problemas siempre es ideal. Pero, ¿y si el enlace de contraseña perdida de WordPress deja de funcionar correctamente?

WishList Member y WordPress usan la misma funcionalidad para manejar contraseñas perdidas u olvidadas. Veamos cómo evaluar y resolver un enlace de contraseña perdido que no parece cooperar.

Función de contraseña perdida predeterminada de WordPress

La página predeterminada de Contraseña perdida funciona con WordPress y agrega lo siguiente a la URL de la página de inicio de sesión de WordPress del sitio:

?acción=contraseña perdida

De modo que WordPress maneja la funcionalidad de contraseña perdida.

Por ejemplo, el enlace “Perdió su contraseña” en https://wlmtest.com/wp-login.php lo dirigiría a la siguiente URL:


Lost WordPress Password

La parte /wp-login.php?action=lostpassword de la URL se basa en la funcionalidad de WordPress para restablecer una contraseña perdida/olvidada.

Si ve otra URL para la página de contraseña perdida, es probable que otro complemento esté alterando esa funcionalidad. Recomendamos verificar si tiene complementos de inicio de sesión o complementos que puedan afectar el inicio de sesión instalado en su sitio.

You can hover a mouse over the Lost your password link on the /wp-login.php page to see where the link directs.

Lost WordPress Password

Note: You have the option to customize the look of the default WordPress Login page so that it better matches your site. This can be done using the WordPress Login Page Styling option in WishList Member.

Potential Reason and Solution

One potential reason for this issue can sometimes be related to running WooCommerce on the site and its setting for lost password. This is related to how WooCommerce can take over the page for the Lost Password.

In the example screenshot below, the page is on top of the WooCommerce “my account” page which might be set as protected on the site. (The page might be named something else depending on the site).

Tenga en cuenta: mi cuenta y contraseña perdida son valores predeterminados establecidos por WooCommerce, pero se pueden cambiar en la configuración de WooCommerce.

Captura de pantalla de ejemplo: (en este ejemplo, se usan “mi cuenta” y “perdido”)


Una posible solución es:

  • Desproteger la página de mi cuenta.
  • No permita que WooCommerce maneje la página de contraseña perdida.

Una cosa a tener en cuenta es que /lost (o contraseña perdida o lo que sea que se le cambie el nombre) no es una página real, por lo que no puede ser desprotegida por WishList Member. Es una “página virtual” creada por WooCommerce.

Si la URL “Perdió su contraseña” termina en contraseña perdida (o algo similar), es probable que sea impulsado por WooCommerce.

So, if you are using WooCommerce, you can check if this is the case and use the default WordPress Lost Password feature instead.

You can do this in the WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > Account Endpoints section.

Lost WordPress Password


You can scroll down to the bottom of the WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > Account Endpoints section and remove the “lost password” (or whatever it displays) from the Lost Password field and click the button Save Changes. This will allow WordPress to manage the latest password functionality for your site members.


You can now assess and fix what might be preventing the Lost Password page from working as expected.
