Use LoginPress for Customized Lost Password Link for LifterLMS

Are you looking for a way to prevent the redirection of the lost password link to Lifter LMS's lost password page?

LoginPress and LifterLMS are popular WordPress plugins. Both plugins offer unique functionalities, helping you in different ways. 

LoginPress helps you customize the default WordPress login page. On the other hand, LifterLMS enables you to create an online presence where you can create and sell online courses.

Suppose you use LoginPress with Lifter LMS for a customized login page. When users click the Lost Password link, they will be taken to the LifterLMS lost password page, Instead of the customized LoginPress form. This can hurt the user’s experience. 

Don’t worry! You can easily prevent this default behavior with a little tweak:

Let’s get started!

Customized Lost Password Page for LifterLMS with LoginPress

The LifterLMS lost password page is where users can reset their passwords. This page is typically accessed by clicking a "Lost your password" link on the LifterLMS login form.

Picture this: LifterLMS uses its own password reset page instead of the default WordPress’s Lost your password page. 

When you use LoginPress to customize the default WordPress login, register, and password reset page, changes will be applied to all except the password reset page

To ensure that the registered person lands on the customized password reset page, you're required to add a code in your theme’s function.php file

We'll show you how you can do this. Simply follow these steps:

Step 1. Go to Theme File Editor

Note: Here, we assume you have already created a membership site with LifterLMS and installed and activated LoginPress on it. Check How to Install And Activate LoginPress (Free).

To change the default Lifter LMS’s Lost Password behavior while using LoginPress, 

Note: It’s recommended to use a child theme to edit the functions.php file instead of the parent theme. There are chances to lose the modified code when you update your theme. It might cause some adverse effects on your website.

Go to the left sidebar of your WordPress admin dashboard, navigate to Appearance, and click the Theme File Editor option.

Step 2. Paste the Code

On the next screen, click the Theme Functions on the right-hand side. Scroll down to the bottom of the functions.php file and add the following code:

 * Function to prevent the redirection of lost password to Lifter LMS’s lost password page
 * [ true = default lost password form ]
 * [ false = lifterLMS lost password form ]
 * @return bool
 function lifter_change_lostpsw_url() {
   return true;
 add_filter('loginpress_llms_lostpassword_url', 'lifter_change_lostpsw_url' );

Step 3. Update the File

Once you’ve added the code, click the Update File button at the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

If you now click the "Lost your password" link on the login form, you’ll be on the default WordPress lost password page instead of redirecting to the Lifter LMS lost password page. 

That’s it! We hope you understand how to prevent the redirection of lost passwords to Lifter LMS's lost password page.
