New Password For User Problem

    1. Which version of WPMU you are running


    2. Whether you’ve installed WPMU in a subdirectory or as a subdomian


    3. Whether you upgraded from a previous version of WPMU. If so, from which version.

    Nope, new install.

    4. Whether WPMU was functioning properly before installing/upgrading BuddyPress

    I suppose

    5. Which version of BuddyPress you are running

    Latest (1.0)

    6. Whether you have any plugins other than BuddyPress installed and activated


    7. Whether you are using the standard BuddyPress themes or customized themes


    8. If running bbPress, which version

    Not using it (tried it, too hard to install). ;)

    9. A list of any errors in your server’s log files


    Hi Everyone:

    One member reported a problem where despite what they imputed their password to be for login, it generated a new password for them when they checked on the conform link. I am wondering if there is some way to stop this – As it is very strange behavior!

  • The default behavior of WPMU is for a randomly generated password to be sent to the user after they register, so unless you use a plugin for users to put their password in on registration, it is the default behavior.



    Hi Trent:

    Then why does BuddyPress make a Password field on registration? Doesn’t it seem a bit odd it would be like this? And is there some plugin that allows this that you know of?



    Sorry, I take this back. It doesn’t make the password field, a member was confused about that part. But is there some option that allows them to choose a password, or how would I go about doing this?




    I was actually looking into that app, but does it work for the “Register” page that BuddyPress creates?

    The plugin DJPaul linked to alters the behavior of WPMU’s registration process which is controlled by wp-signup.php.

    When using BuddyPress, you have a choice to either use WPMU’s registration script or the alternate one found in the home theme–register.php. More information in this thread

    Yeah, and I haven’t tried it – I just did a quick search to point you in the right direction



    Thanks for both of your replies. I have decided to modify the register.php page to fit my needs, and am wondering how I can register another field to have an error message. I am referring to in bp-core-signup.php where it shows all of the fields. In addition, what function should I look at to add the password to the database after the user registers.
