Hi Guys,

I am sure this is a standard requirement for any website nowadays.
Is there a built in way to let user pick password and also activate account via an email activation link?

Cheers,
Jason

Hi Jason,

Not at the moment. The 2 options are:

1) Have a password generated and sent via email. Thereby validating they have access to the email supplied.
or
2) Allow them to set a password on registration. There's no validation email sent at the moment for this.

I realise there's probably more work we can do on the 2nd option, or even make it a third option of "enable user to set password and send email validation link".

Thanks,
Adam.

Thanks Adam,
Please also add an option to not send password via email in plaintext in future release as well.

Cheers,
Jason

Hi Jason,

What do you mean not send the password in plain text? How else should it be sent? :)

Thanks,
Adam.

Hello,

I agree with Jason, and if you add an option to check email validation before registration, it will be even better.

Thank you,
Kal
