Create a Custom WordPress Password Reset Form

This WordPress form will allow users to recover their lost passwords or reset passwords from the frontend of your website.

Note: the terms password reset, lost password and forgot passwords are used interchangeably in this tutorial and they all mean the same thing.

Custom WordPress Reset Password Form

  1. Hover on ProfilePress and click on Forms & Profiles
  2. Click on Add New and select the Password Reset form type
  3. Enter a name for the form
  4. Select your preferred template
  5. Design the form with the drag & drop builder or the Advanced shortcode builder.

You can preview how the form will look by clicking on the “Live Preview” button

Using the ShortCode Builder

When using the shortcode builder, you can further customize the password reset form by editing the form code directly. There are fields to add custom CSS that only applies to the form.

Password Reset Form Handler

You can also customize the Password Reset Handler Form. This is the text and content the user fills in after clicking on the password reset email sent to him.

The Form Settings

In the form settings, you can change the form headline, colors, and button labels. You can also set the success message to be shown to the new users.

After saving the form a shortcode will be generated for that particular form. Go to Forms & Profiles>>Edit Profile and copy the shortcode for the newly created form.

That’s it! Your custom WordPress Password reset form is live and ready to use.

The last step is to add the password reset shortcode to a page.

NB: If you are using Gutenberg Block Editor you need to add the Shortcode block then paste the shortcode in the field

La fin!
