Easier Registration Process #1517
When a form requires or asks for registration, it makes the donor enter additional information that I think can be automated. We should make the process of registering on the site much easier.
Currently, we already ask for their first and last names and email address. If registration is optional or required, we then also demand that they enter a username and password:
WordPress already has a Strong Password generator built into it. We should auto-populate the password fields with that, and allow the donor to SEE that password (for saving purposes).
We can also create their username automatically with a combo of their first and last name.
Honestly, the best of ALL words would simply be that all they had to do was check a checkbox acknowledging that an account is being created based on their information. Then WordPress sends them the confirmation email with the necessary info anyway.

What about just using their email address as the username? Other than that, I completely agree with all this. Sounds much better to have just a checkbox or something.
At very least, put the "Already have an account?" stuff down to the right of the "Create an account" header.
