Make installation form pluggable (was: allow user to set password)
|Reported by:||markjaquith||Owned by:||garyc40|
There are a few things about WordPress' handling of passwords that annoy me.
When WordPress is installed, a random password is created. It would be nice if the user, upon logging in for the first time, was prompted to set their own password.
Resetting a password takes too many steps. There are two e-mail verification steps, when one would do. Once the initial verification link is clicked, the user should be provided with the new password (on the page, not just in an e-mail.) They also could be provided with a "set your password" form allowing them to set the password to something they'll remember, so they're not doing this again the next time they want to blog from the library.
