Reset password works but redirects it to the wrong link

Hi guys,
I met a bug.
I do have a a website on your service: https://something.netlify.app (“something” is dummy url)
Now, please, follow up: → When I go “Identity” → then I click on one any confirmed user → click “Send reset password email” I’m getting successfully getting confirmation email → when I click on the confirmation link I am successfully redirected to page which allow me to reset password → once I typed in new password and confirmed it with a button below I’m getting redirected to the link: “something.netlify.app/admin/admin”, instead of “portl-staging.netlify.app/admin” . Tried it on different users and works same. The password reset works successfully and for me its not an issue but for many non-technical guys its an issue indeed. Can you, please, fix the redirect link which works incorrectly. Thanks

It is assumed that your will handle the login/signup on the home page and thus, after login or something you can go to /admin/. It’s not a bug, rather intended behaviour and it’s mostly handled by client-side JS code.

Are you able to share your source code?

I wrote a little guide on how to setup Netlify Identity to work with Netlify CMS:

the root of my project looks like the following:

when I go cd ./src/admin I see 3 files:

-rw-r--r-- 1 user user     4101 Aug  4 18:50 config.yml
-rw-r--r-- 1 user user     256 Aug  4 18:21 index.html
-rw-r--r-- 1 user user     29 Aug  4 18:21 index.js

index.js it is a one-liner file and looks the following:
import CMS from "netlify-cms"

Should I show you some more?
Thanks for help

I’ve been following this article and issue is not resolved … any other help or should I provide more info?

Have you followed the gridsome guide?:

If you’re using the gridsome-plugin-netlify-cms, you might want to dive into it’s configuration options:
