New Users Specify Password

  • Is it possible to allow the users to specify their password when they create their account without the generating of a random password being necessary?

    I would say it possible with a plugin,

    doesn’t exist one already?

    The bb_new_user() function is pluggable,

    so you are able to write your own one.

    Where would I find an example for the bb_new_user() function?

    It is in bb-includes/plugable.php

    I don’t know PHP. I’d like new users to create their own password. It seems this thread is telling you how to do it but not if you don’t know PHP. I have located the section called “bb_new_user” in the bb-includes/plugable.php file, but what do I need to change to get is so new users can make their own password? Could you tell me exactly what to do?

    Thanks,

    Jennifer

    Hello juboe,

    _ck_ has developed an “instant password” plugin. The link is: http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/instant-password/installation/

    As he suggests you may want to install the “Human Test” plugin: http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/human-test/

    as the instant password will automatically log you in upon registering.

    Create a folder titled my-plugins. Upload the plugin to the folder. Go to your bbpress admin interface and activate. You will now see a password field in your registration page.

    Hope this helps!

    RedBull,

    Thanks for the info. I got the instant password to work. Is there a way for members to change password once they are logged in?

    Thanks,

    juboe
