Fail to reset password on wordpress sites, reset link appears to be invalid..

Hi @sven, I am developing a custom engine to create user accounts on wordpress blogs which requires the reset password process after the registration.

Every step works well except the process of resetting password, the page shows error - "reset link appears to be invalid", the script is blow:

    Still doesn't work, the reset password URL was extracted successfully, I have saved it to a test file and checked.
     
  • See the debug log in SER:


    The page I opened in "login_step1":

    When the link is extracted, you should not open it, the only one having to open it is SER.
  • >When the link is extracted, you should not open it, the only one having to open it is SER.
    I don't understand, I didn't open the link, but it shows "failed" in the [login_step1], that's why I manually open the download page and see what happened..

    I referred to the Drupal engine, and can't find anything wrong in my script, could you please point it to me? I really apppreciate that, I have been stuck with the problem for many days.

  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    actually I don't see anything being wrong without live debugging it. Is that script final and do you have a test site for me?
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    you sent me details in pm...just saw it and will check.
  • Dear @sven, I am still waiting for a solution, really appreciate your time and help.
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    as written in pm...I debugged this and the link received by email works but for some reason always gives an error when opening. Right now I have no solution to this problem but will try to debug this after free-days (free in Germany till end of Week).
  • Thanks so much! I just PMed you a couple of more sample sites, just in case you want to test..
  • Hi @sven, have you had time on debugging the issue yet?
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    still on my list (or open tabs of issues to go though).
  • I will look forward to the update, thanks in advance.
  • Any update on the issue? @sven
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    sorry, we have holidays here in Germany, I will back in office tomorrow where I hopefully find the time to work on it.
  • Oh, didn't know that, hope you enjoy your holiday.
  • I really hate to push you too hard, however, I really need to get this issue resolved since it's the common issue for two custom engines...

    I just encountered this bug, i think its due to cookie not being set by GSA SER. All info submitted to Sven.
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    yep this was really a helpful analysis @andrzejek ...saw it instantly in the logs as well.

    Thanks to both of you for helping finding this...it's fixed in latest update (13.66).
