    Default Forgot Password Redirect to Admin Page

    Hi, when a member fills in their email address to have their username and password emailed to them, they are redirected to the admin section where they receive a message saying that their details have been emaied to them. How can I redirect them to a page of my choice instead?

    It redirects to ......../admin/index.php?action=send_forgot

    Moved to sandbox as this will require core file changes.

    It's not a bug, the OP wanted to change how the existing system works.

    This isn't a bug as a bug is when something isn't functioning as it is supposed to. This is functioning exactly as it was designed to do, he is looking to modify it to do something else. That would be a feature request if you wanted to submit it somewhere to be considered in the future.

    Ok.

    So, what is the reasoning behind having a regular member redirected to an admin page? Am I missing something?

    because the admin section will allow any registered user to log in and will only display what they have access to, in a members case that would just be the Manage my account option.

    Yup, that's pretty obvious, I'm just saying that it's glaring for a non-admin to be dropped into a differently styled page when all the core need do is post a confirmation message back to the login page.

    But I'll post a feature request.
