Generate a temporary password and redirect in WooCommerce

To generate a temporary password and redirect in WooCommerce, you will need to use custom code and a custom page. Here's how to do it:

Step 1: Create a custom page for the password change form:

Go to “Pages” in your WordPress dashboard and click “Add New.”

Give the page a title, for example, “Password Change.”

Add content you want to display on the page, such as a custom password change form.

Save the page.

Step 2: Add code to generate temporary password:

Open the functions.php file of your child theme or custom theme using a code editor.

Add the following code to the end of the file:

function generate_temporary_password() { return wp_generate_password( 12, false ); // Change '12' to the desired temporary password length }

This code will generate a 12-character temporary password. You can change the number 12 to whatever length you want for the temporary password.

Step 3: Add redirect code in WooCommerce:

Add the following code in the functions.php file to redirect users to the change password page after signing in:

function redirect_to_change_password( $user_login, $user ) { $redirect_url = home_url( '/change-password/' ); // Replace '/change-password/' with the URL of your custom password change page wp_safe_redirect( $redirect_url ); exit; } add_action( 'wp_login', 'redirect_to_change_password', 10, 2 );

Replaces '/change-password/' with the URL of the custom password change page created in Step 1.

Step 4: Create the password change form:

Use a forms plugin like WPForms or Gravity Forms to create a form that allows users to change their password. Make sure this form includes a field for the user's current password and another field for the new password and its confirmation.

Step 5: Set up the password change page:

Make sure the change password form processes the new password and updates it in the database, as explained in previous answers.

With these steps, when users log in to WooCommerce, a temporary password will be generated for them. They will then be redirected to the personalized change password page where they can enter the temporary password and the new password they wish to use. Once they submit the form, their password will be updated in the database and they will be able to use the new password for future logins. Remember to perform extensive testing to make sure everything is working correctly.
