Re: Simple registration
This sounds a past issue, yet I would like to add fuel to this thread. Please make me aware if there is already a plug in for this feature. I saw a note of _ck_ requesting this enhancement but I doubt it has gone through over these months yet.
To txrediakov: I want to enable the user to choose their password, not because of email anymore but because I believe we cannot just deny our users this capability. It is expected in any reasonable website that the user can type her own password.
To chrishajer: Good information. Now thinking logically: If one can display the password in a window returned after registration I think it could be possible to perform one additional step in the php code to take a password fetched from a custom field in the registration page, then take the bbpress generated password and replace it with the new value.
However, there is a slight problem. The user can only change her password after she is logged in. Granting the new user access to the account to post right away after registration may pose some kind of security thread to the system and to the accounts of all users. So how could we go about doing this without compromising the security of the system?
Please you are welcome to contact me as I need to work and solve this issue.
