I'm trying to let users create a Wordpress account inside of the civicrm registration form. I created the form and it shows the username field and it works no problem - I can see the account created in Civicrm and Wordpress. But, there is no way for a user to create a password in the form. I saw that this may be intentional on a gitlab post. Is there a work around to this so the user can create a password by themselves in the civicrm registration form.

Thank you!

This was intentional for wordpress. The person needs to click the link in the email.

You can see the code that controls this in https://github.com/civicrm/civicrm-core/blob/91ac1dc25c9e24422c6bc9feabca9e5c16b4856d/CRM/Utils/System/WordPress.php#L1034. It always returns FALSE.
