And it is hard to notice, because WordPress immediately redirect our link into “Your password reset link appears to be invalid. Please request a new link below” page.


It’s just a formality, but how to fix it? Click the right mouse button over the link, copy link (you may use other ways to copy it) and paste it into your browser. Make sure that “>” is deleted and hit enter or whatever you do to navigate. That will do the trick.
