Add Custom Password Fields on the Registration Form

By default, WordPress has a Username or Email and Password fields for the users to get themselves registered on your WordPress site.

Default Registration Form

When the user provides the login credentials, WordPress generates a password and sends the login credentials to the user’s email address. But you can shorten this process by adding a custom password field to the default WordPress registration form to let users set their password during the signup process. It is simple with the LoginPress Custom Password Fields option.  

This knowledgebase article will show you how to add custom password fields on the registration form with LoginPress.
