Bug in forgotten password link?

Hi Hans,

I noticed this a good month ago but as I managed to dig out my original randomly assigned password and log in, I dismissed it as an issue with my browser cache but I've just seen the same issue in Chrome and Firefox.

If you click on the Login link, then click "forgotten password", you are emailed a link to reset your password. When you click that link, a new tab will open up but the box that is provided for you to pick your new password can't be typed in. When you hover your mouse over the boxes, the cursor just turns into a no entry symbol.

I've only tried this from work on both occasions but I can't see what we'd be blocking at this end that would affect something so simple. Might be worth checking at your end, just in case.

Thanks Callahan for taking the time to report this.

I've had 3 others report something similar.
Since this is either WordPress or plugin related, I'll have to do some research and testing to see what's going on.

Thanks for a detailed report, so I can try reproduce the issue ...
