The "Reset Password" button in the User Log In pop-up does not appear to work from a secure page (using https).

 The "Reset Password" button links to https://<my domain>/Admin/Advanced-Settings/ctl/SendPassword?returnurl=https://<my-domain>/Admin/Advanced-Settings

In Chrome, the spinning DNNloading symbol is displayed in the pop-up and just keeps spinning.
In Firefox, a message is displayed in the pop-up saying "Object moved here" where "here" is a link to http://<my domain>/Admin/Advanced-Settings/ctl/SendPassword?returnurl=http://<my domain>/Admin/Advanced-Settings&popUp=true
i.e. the same link but http instead of https (with &popUp=true added).

If I click on "here" nothing happens, but if I right click on it and Open in a New Tab, the link works fine. Obviously this is not an option with Chrome as the "Object moved here" message is not displayed.

If I uncheck the "secure" setting on the page and access it via http, the "Reset Password" button works fine in the Log in pop-up.

Can I send you a link to the page ? (not to be published on the forum).

I set up a test portal on the same DNN installation using the default portal template:

I checked both "SSL Enabled" and "SSL Enforced" in Admin/site Settings/advanced Settings/SSL Settings.

I created a page "test page" and checked the "Secure" box in the page settings.

The Reset Password button is working from the Login pop-up.

 However, I notice that the link on the button is :

https://<my domain>/test-portal/Home/ctl/SendPassword?returnurl=%2ftest-portal%2fTest-page

Why on my other Portal am I seeing  /Advanced-Settings/ctl/SendPassword  ?

l think I may have the answer:

On my other Portal I  had redirected the Home page to an internal page. This portal is to provide a singe page for online booking.  As it accepts credit card payments, I had to make it SSL only.

I wanted the URL to be <my domain>/<portal-name>/online-booking, but to prevent curious people trying to access <my-domain>/<portal name>/ I set the Home page to be a link to the online-booking page.

I have recreated this scenario in the test portal, but the reset button still works (and still links to https://<my domain>/test-portal/Home/ctl/SendPassword?returnurl=%2ftest-portal%2fTest-page )

But on my original portal, I have fixed the problem:

1) I created a page "New home".

2) I set it to redirect to the online-booking page.

3) I then set it to be the site Home page.

From my online-booking page I click on the login button and the link on the Reset Password button is now: https://<my domain>/<portal name>/New-Home/ctl/SendPassword?returnurl=https://<my domain>/<portal name>/ .

This Reset Password link works correctly.

There is still something weird on my original Portal preventing me from deleting the original Home page.

On the Page Management page, I see I have the following pages on my Portal:

You can see there is no longer a link on the page called Home.

When I click on the page called Home, I see this:

 However, when I right click and select Page Settings, I am shown the Page Settings for the online booking page:

 Similarly, when I right click and select View Page, I am shown the online-booking page.

So, now I am scared to delete the Home page in case my online-booking page gets deleted!
