I wanted to automatically add the password via the password generator. How can I have it?

Hi DavSign, I don’t really understand your question but perhaps this URL is what you mean.
Why do you need a password generator and where?
Kind regardsOctober 30, 2014 at 8:28 pm #60289
I would like to autogenerate a password for a member. The situation is that the admin or other staff member is the one registering the ‘member’ and not the member. We have several membership levels where we are the ones giving them access and setting the membership level for them. THe way it is setup, I have to set the username and password. Is there a way to register without setting the password and have the system autogenerate a password and send the login details to the new member in his confirmation email?
Currently, I could just send a private registration page link to the new member and have him register. However I can not control who registers as anyone with this link can then register.
I also could register the person with a standard password and then have the user ‘reset his password’. This would be awkward as to ask the user to reset his password after getting the confimation email.October 30, 2014 at 10:23 pm #60290wzpModerator

Random characters would work better. That way, you increase security, instead of using a guessable “standard password.”October 30, 2014 at 10:57 pm #60291
Yes I understand this but I don’t want myself or my staff to put in the password. I just want the system to autogenerate a password, hidden from myself or staff that is registering this person. Only on the user confirmation email will the autogenerated password show up. Currently, I have to enter a password to register this person.October 30, 2014 at 10:59 pm #60292
The risk is if we do a lot of registering, my staff or myself may just put in “asdfghjk” keystrokes just to get the password entered… thus the word ‘standard password’ and I will have 20 people with the same password.October 31, 2014 at 1:46 am #60293wzpModerator
Use some PHP code to create a random string; then use the eMember API to update the password:
