#41236 new defect (bug)

Reset Password button text during the registration process

Description

After completing the registration form at wp-login.php, the user is sent a "Your username and password" email which contains a link to the reset password page. Here, the user can set a password.

The button on the page reads "Reset Password".

The button text doesn't quite make sense. The user isn't resetting their password; instead, they are setting a password for the first time.

Something like "Set password" seems more appropriate.

Even in the process of resetting your password, you actually hit this button to SET the password.

Even though renaming the button has been suggested in the comments, the focus of #39638 is more on the UX of the password reset process. This ticket (#41236) could be an interim quick win if the button is renamed.

Note that renaming the button to "Set" will mean "Reset Password" gettext filters will stop working. Not really sure if this is acceptable?
