    Example migrated from Codex:

    The following example would return a lost password URL for the wp_lostpassword_url() function:

    add_filter( 'lostpassword_url', 'my_lost_password_page', 10, 2 );
    function my_lost_password_page( $lostpassword_url, $redirect ) {
        return home_url( '/lostpassword/?redirect_to=' . $redirect );
