Hello community!

I would like to thank you for this amazing tool, I've been using it for a little over 1 month and I feel very satisfied with this platform.

I couldn't understand the structure of the forum and I'm posting in this area, please forgive me if it's not appropriate.

I would like to share my problem:

I have a problem. My registration and login are all in WPFORO, however, the URL sent by email the link sent is the path of my wordpress admin folder.

I don't feel safe using it like this, I would like the email to send the direct link to WPFORO.

I've already tried disabling and enabling the redirect options.
I've already tried recreating the htaccess and modifying the permalinks.

Keep in mind that all registration/login/emails are 100% handled by Wordpress core. What you see in wpForo is just a form for easyness. Nothing else.

I made a new account in your wordpress and i got NO verification email, meaning anyone can register without validation. That is wrong and you should change it back or you will have tones of spam.

I see the link you say, when requesting a lost password email.

Doing that in my site i get:

https://www.website.com/wp-login.php?action=rp&key=Wktsdsdsdsdsds6g&login=usernametest&wp_lang=en_US

So some plugin of yours is changing all that. Not wpForo.

Hello,

Thanks for replying to my post.
I found the problem in the WP-ADMIN CHANGE plugin.
I will disable and try to rename WP-ADMIN in another way without affecting the forum.

Sorry for wasting your time on something simple.

Thanks for the help my friend.

@kelvin I have no idea. As i told you, emails are handled by Wordpress.
