Disable the allow_password_reset feature

Adding this snippet to the functions.php will disable the allow_password_reset feature from the login page. When using the lost password feature after you add this snippet wordpress will display "Password reset is not allowed for this user".

function disable_password_reset() { 
              return false;
add_filter ( 'allow_password_reset', 'disable_password_reset' );
