Password reset not working for Discourse 2.6.0.beta2

Hi all!

I use Discourse 2.6.0.beta2 Docker installation behind a Nginx proxy. Unfortunatelly users cannot reset their passwords. An email with a link is comming, but the link seems to be broken no matter how fast you will try to use it. There is a sad face :frowning: and a “Something went wrong” message when you click the reset password link from the email.

In the administration panel (https://mysite/logs/)I cannot see any logs reletad to that event. And what is also strange a docker container does not log anything as well:

This is the output of

dokcer logs app

Are you receiving the correct link? It should look something like this: https://forum.example.com/u/password-reset/6a34c2454cf11a6707a23591e6c417ba

Hi Gerhard, thank you for your answear.

The link seems to be OK. There is “users” instead of “u” in my link.

Hi,
I tested on two of my instances. Same error.
It looks like the generated link is wrong.
If I change:
users -> u
it works :slight_smile:

I can confirm that a workoround proposed by @napcok works. However I would not call it a solution. Maybe you can advice me how to solve this problem?

Looks like it affects only Polish and Turkish languages.

I send pull request with fix for this.

I think it should be done there:
https://translate.discourse.org/translate/f3230e7607a36bb0a2f97fd90605a44e/248/en-tr/24#q=Şimdi+bir+parola+seçmek+için+şu+bağlantıya+tıklayın%3A

As I don’t know Turkisk, Polish or Crowdin, I will refrain from trying anything :sweat_smile:

Thanks! I updated the translations in the discourse repo. They should land in the tests-passed branch really soon.
