When we try to reset the password using link


email is sent with some link like

www.example.com/wp-login.php?redirect_to=url?action=rp&key=Z6l5JdAyusl0CHAZZ4qH&[email protected] 

but when we click on the link that is sent it will redirect us to login page url is some thing like this.



In normal wordpress when ever we click on lost password link wordpress show us a text box where we need to provide either email/username and then we need to click on get new password link and word press create a url and email it to that user. User then open their inbox and click on the url sent by the wordpress to create new passowrd. when we click on that wordpress generated rather then moving to create new password screen wordpress move me to login page that is the issue.

I just found the answer:


contains the fragment ?redirect_to=url. Some plugin you have installed seems to add this using wp_login_url('url');, which results in an incorrect formatting of the url. Used with wp_login_url() your problems should be fixed.
