Quick tutorial showing how to include a Password field on any user-registration form.

Notice: Thanks to changes made in WP 4.3 and 4.3.1, custom passwords no longer are possible using the technique provided on this page. WordPress now handles all aspects of password-generation for registering new users. If necessary, developers may implement custom passwords by overriding default functionality (see the Codex example for redefining the user-notification function).

Include a Password Field

First make sure that your form is a user-registration form. Then define a Custom Field on the USP Form as follows:


Then include the Custom Field’s shortcode in the form, for example:

[usp_custom_field form="1234" id="1"]

Note that on your form, the “1234” and “1” may be different. Also, you can customize the Custom Field using shortcode attributes.
