wp-login.php uses $_REQUEST['redirect_to'] as a way to override redirection for lostpassword link. However, it doesn't seem to work for some reason. Maybe its my server environment, but $_REQUEST['redirect_to'] value is unset even if I explicitly pass it as a GET variable in the URI.
Is this a wordpress thing or something possibly with my hosting environment or just me being a newb?
I saw another post where user @rarst mentioned WP implements its own logic behavior to enforce REQUEST as a combo of GET and POST. But I don't see the code he's talking about anywhere in wp-login and not in wp-load, either. So I'm guessing that REQUEST on wp-login behaves however the php environment is configured for it to behave.
Anyone have some insight on this?
