Multisite: The lost password link on a sub-site wp-login.php page points to the main-site

When a user is on a sub-site wp-login.php page, it would make sense to link to the lost password form on the sub-site instead of linking to the lost password form on the main-site.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Visit the wp-login.php page at
  2. Hover over the "Lost your password?" link below the form
  3. Note the URL points to the main-site

I feel context should be maintained. For example, if a user has visited a sub-site then they shouldn't be taken to the main-site to reset their password if a lost password facility exists on the sub-site.

Thanks for pointing out the existing ticket @ocean90. This is an issue when the sub-site uses a different language to the main-site.
