[resolved] how to copy chosen password to email? (2 posts)

    Hi Chad,

    I've set the plugin to approve by admin before accepting registration.
    I've added a field to let the new user choose it's own password.
    I've taken out the shortcode for password in the acceptation email to prevent the plugin from generating a new password.

    My question is: how to make it happen that the chosen password is being copied to the first email? Or way better: to copy the username and chosen password in the second, acceptation email?

    Thanks and regards

    When you allow user chosen passwords and you are moderating registration, if you are going to send the user an email with their login credentials, you must send the password in the first email.

    I thought this was described in the User Guide, but I can't seem to find it (perhaps I need to do some documentation updates).

    By way of explanation, the shortcode doesn't generate the password, it simply puts the created password in the email. When the user chooses a password at registration, that is encrypted by WP. That can't be sent at approval because of the encryption.

    To send user credentials, put the shortcodes into the welcome email and you should be fine. For a good user experience, include wording to let the user know that their login credentials will not work until their account has been approved.
