Wordpress 4.3 New Registration email presents a password value of "both". This is preventing new users from registering - critical!
Username: twg
Password: both

It works fine on version 4.2.4

I just ran a clean install and created a new user under the following scenarios

admin user add new default password
admin user add new show pass/default
admin edit user generate new
user self registration

I never received an email with a password in it at all. Taking a quick look at your registration on the link provided, it appears you have a plugin that alters the registration.

Thank so much for taking a look at the problem.

After installing the new version of WP, I did add a couple of plugins late yesterday. I backed out one -- that put login & registration in the menu bar -- thinking that might be causing the issue, but it didn't help. I wonder if deleting it didn't completely remove the changes. The other plugin prevents non-admins from seeing the toolbar, and that is still active.

I really want a solution that lets people subscribe to the site using register and login from the menu bar, but never see the toolbar and go to the profile only if they intend to. The only thing they need to do there is change email address and password, as far as I'm concerned. If you have any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear about them.

Again, thank you!

Here is a quick question, but first a little background...
Before adding the suspect plugins, I did a Duplicator back up and saved it to my local disc - but just prior to upgrading the WP software to 4.3. So I have a 4.3 site and a 4.2.x backup. I've since backed out the plugins but the problem persist. My question is:

Can I restore the 4.2.x software with the current 4.3 mysql database? I think there was a database update with 4.3.

Thank you for any Guidance...

Hey @Tomwarneke, can you create a support ticket over at for the restore problem? I would be happy to jump over there and help. Let's keep this ticket about the email problem and see if anyone else can replicate it.

Replying to bjarkeml:

Yes...I'm the plugin author and I can confirm the issue. It's in the process of being fixed. The issue is compatibility with 4.3. Fix will be out soon.

The issue is not with WordPress. On a clean install, it works fine. New user notifications changed in 4.3.
