Help with emailling passwords (5 posts)

    Is there a way to remove the emailling of passwords functionality from the registration process of WordPress 2.3.

    I am using my WordPress install on an internal server, as a Blog for my department (where I work). So sending emails without going through the companies servers is forbidden.

    My question is this, can the registration page be altered to allow people to just sign-up with the use of emails???

    If the department is a part of the company, there should not be a problem of using the company's servers.

    but, stranger things have happened.

    You can prevent the sending of e-mail passwords by disabling the function in the wordpress code... or by using a mail-by-smtp plugin and assigning a no-relay smpt server. (mail.example.org for instance)

    you may wish to double check with your work as well, perhaps using the mail-by-smtp type plugin, you could use the company smtp servers, in compliance with the restrictions.

    ahhh... as far as I am aware, the auto generated password is only sent out when the user fills out the forms provided in the default install.

    You may be able to use a form processor to allow guests to sign up via a custom form, which would include assigning their own password.

    Bit tricky on the coding, but it would basically be the same as Admin filling out the form on the user management page.
