Customizing the Registration page
I am wondering the best way to customize the fields on the registration page.
I want to limit the fields to a little as possible to encourage registrations. As it is now, including all profile fields on the registration page is kind of daunting as a new user with no investment in the site yet, and not totally necessary for sign up. (at least for me)
My intention is to have them fill out the necessities and then on activation be sent to their profile and be encouraged to fill in the rest. That part I’m good with. It’s just the customizing of the form I am having some trouble with.
Ideally what i’d like to do is have only
password (no confirm password)
I’ve taken a look at the register.php file but I’m not totally sure what’s going on here.
If i remove any required fields, say the confirm password, validation errors occur, due to the password not being entered twice. (which makes sense, but how should i properly deactivate this?)
I know there are some plugins that can kind of maybe sort of do this with some figity trickery but that doesn’t help me understand whats actually going on.
