Does anyone know how to do this?
With JQuery maybe? I keep getting requests to turn it off.
They can choose the password of their choice and use the checkbox to confirm the use of weak password if needed.
Having a password to log in is required. Having a strong password is important for the safety of your site.
Disabling this feature would be too bad imho. But you can always override the
/members/register.php from a
/buddypress/members/register.php template in your active theme (or better child theme).
Thanks for reply.
I do not want to disable the strong password requirement or warning, simply the randomly generated strong password on the regsiter screen (eg. ‘fhY&8_gmn(.*)
What is happening is that my users (not very tech savvy) are not taking a note of this password and registering. They then have to reset it and we are losing users this way (they get confused very easily).
It’s not something I’ve seen on other sites.
Is there any way I can turn off the auto-generated password on this screen?
Yes, the easiest way is to activate the BP Legacy Template Pack from the BuddyPress Options screen into your WordPress Dashboard.
Using the WordPress control for generating passwords is a BP Nouveau only feature. The benefits of it is to have the same control than WordPress (eg: when your member are resetting their passwords from the site.url/wp-login.php page).
Many thanks – will take a look.
I think you can also disable the generated password on the registration page for the nouveau theme by adding the following code to functions.php
add_action( 'bp_before_register_page', 'bp_page_signup_disable_random_password');
add_filter( 'random_password', '__return_empty_string' );
Thank you comminski. Can anyone of you explain why BP doesn’t hide the password-input keys by default, and how to achieve this?
Hi I have the same problem as Stevecurrey. I can’t use the legacy because I’m using buddyx theme and the nuoveau is needed to the theme. I tried to implement the code from comminsky but unfortunately It is not working for me. Most probably I don’t paste it at the right place. Could someone give me the path and the name of the file and in which part of the file this code should go. Also if someone knows some plugin so we can edit the fields or text of the form would be great. Cheers
