After the WP 4.3 release, There will be not any option to fill password twice.
User will fill password only once.

When JS is disabled there is still 2 fields that show. The two message although similar are different errors. One is a mismatch and the other is empty. I think we could remove the empty error probably as the mismatch covers both scenarios.

@jmayhak thanks for the patch. Can we also remove the empty message?

#6 @jmayhak

@MikeHansenMe Sorry, I don't follow. A message that is shown when no password is provided (empty)?

33101.diff is what I was thinking but did not look at it too much. Would still need testing.

If you fill only one of the new password field you get two messages one for the passwords not matching the other for saying both fields need to be filled.

@MikeHansenMe I see. That section would need to stay because that's the error shown if you only enter 1 password. The error "Please enter the same password in the two password fields" won't show.

#10 @MikeHansenMe

"Please enter the same password in the two password fields." seems to cover both scenarios.

If one of the two is empty and also if they do not match.

@jmayhak's patch works for me and everything looks good.

May I suggest "Please enter the same password in both password fields."?

Users: Remove redundant error message when password is only entered once.

"Please enter the same password in both password fields" should cover all the scenarios.
