[resolved] Is there a way to deactivate a password requirement for users/members...? (6 posts)

    I'm making lists of people and one of the lists is actually a list of alumni. (But I'm the one that is going to actually create these users. Most of the alumni have graduated.)

    But I don't want to type in a password each time I create a new user. So is there a way to deactivate password requirements for these new users/members that I'm going to create.

    Thanks for any assistance.

  2. No, not out of the box, that would be a security hole. I'm sure someone can write a plugin to do it, mind.

    Yeah, that is what I thought. Thanks for confirming that.

    By the way, is there a plugin like that...? If not, is there a section in this support where I can request others to make a plugin...?

  4. You could try at the jobs.wordpress.Net site. I've never seen that sort of plugin, but maybe google will find something.

    Yeah I tried google first before actually registering to ask a question here. That site seems like I would have to pay someone. (But I don't have the budget to pay someone.)

    Thanks for the help regardless.

    So I guess my next logical question would be to see if there is a plugin that manages Lists of people. (Preferably where I would just have to type in the names. Not necessarily have to be registered with my site.)

    You see I use to use Joomla, and it had a nice way managing lists of people like that. I just wish wordpress was that easy for this area.

    I've been using the "People List" plugin. It is nice and all, but if there is a better plugin than that I could greatly use it to improve my site. (I'm looking for features that have description on top (First/Last name, position, year graduated, etc.) and then anyone can view them with descending or ascending options.

    I'll even take something like this.

    That is, if I can make something in excel and then import the table in.

    Sorry for the double post, but I have solved my problem myself. So a mod can close this thread.

    The [WP-Table Reloaded] plugin is perfect for what I need. I don't have to worry about creating new users for those people who have graduated. I can just make tables right there inside wordpress. And it even dynamically orders them by alphabetically.

    Here is the link for those in the future who may stumble upon this thread.

    I also tried the [TinyMCE Advanced] plugin, but it just wasn't what I was looking for. But it may help someone else. It adds a slew of "table" options in the text editor inside wordpress.

    I'd like to thank ipstenu for replying back again.
