I'm trying to redirect a user after they have reset their password. I'm using the following code, based on an example from the wordpress docs.

add_filter( 'lostpassword_redirect', 'my_redirect_home' );
function my_redirect_home( $lostpassword_redirect ) {
    return home_url() . '/my-account/';

As far as I can tell, the filter is never hit. I've tried replacing the return with an exit; but nothing changes. This seems pretty straight forward. Am I missing something?

Edit: To clarify, I want to redirect them after they have entered their new password and it has been accepted. I want to redirect them to the login form so that they can use the password they've just set up.

  • You mean redirecting after you press "Get New Password" on the /wp-login.php?action=lostpassword page ? What's the landing page for the above code? Any other redirects from your /my-account/ page?

I was missing something. Woocommerce accounts are different from normal Wordpress accounts. The code that I was looking for was:

function woocommerce_new_pass_redirect( $user ) {
  wp_redirect( get_permalink(woocommerce_get_page_id('myaccount')));

add_action( 'woocommerce_customer_reset_password', 'woocommerce_new_pass_redirect' );

I found it on stackoverflow.
