Support » Fixing WordPress » Confusing registration dialogs

  • Hi folks,

    when a new user registers he’s shown a confusing dialog during the initial password setup process. He’s asked to “Reset Password” even though logically he would not reset, but create it.

    Which file do I have to edit to change the “Reset Password” button dialog to “Set Password”? Maybe this can be corrected in a future update??

    Thanks in advance.

  • This is probably an issue with your theme or site setup, you can contact your developer to help or your theme author.

    Hi dimitris22

    thanks for your reply.
    Actually, the registration dialogs also appear when using the build-in WordPress Themes (twenty sixteen). I actually think that the WP-Programmers mistakenly used the wrong wording.

    It’s actually not a big issue if you’re using the site by your self, but if you’re allowing registrations by “normal” visitors the dialogs can be very confusing.

    Anyway, I hope someone can help and point me to the location / file where I can edit the wording myself =)


    Database codes are made to be strong to avoid hacking. Md5 plus many.
    That’s precisely why password can be retrieved only by the person who created a single WordPress site.

    If you know where you lost one part of it, log to phpmyadmin or edit main WP config file.

    As admin, you will be able to create levels of admin like in a forum with severals rights.


    this is what you should see when you hit the ‘register’ button
