Yup, any site where I register that logs me in right away. The first thing I do is log out and log in to store the password.
Perhaps it could redirect you to the login page where your Username and Password you specified are already in the boxes, then it's just a case of clicking "Login" and clicking "Remember Password" in the browser.

That's naughty. :o
Why?
You should be using a password that you can’t remember.
mypassword123 is bad. 9c87baa22$3f464954940f8^59bcf2e233 is a much better password, but impossible to remember, that’s why you would use a password storing utility, which encrypts the data inside and has a master password to access it. Having a truly unique password for each site is also essential, and trying to remember all of your passwords for each site becomes a challenge, don’t you think? :)

I also do the same as ToonArmy, I just end up logging out to log back in and store my password.

Maybe an option saying 'Would you like to Auto-Login After Registration'?

I had that in v1.0.1/v1.0.2 ;)

Also, you guys, maybe include: Login After Activation :P

(Doesn't need password in email, just creates the session with the username, skipping the login authentication)

I truly hope this will be added to 3.1.

At the very least have it redirect to the Login page.

I think really, it's only pretty organised geeks who log-out and log back in to store a complex password.

I would hazard a guess that most community members of non-geek forums use the same password everywhere, and would greatly appreciate not having to log in manually after registration.

Geek forums can always disable the new default behaviour, to log you in automatically; rather than now, where non-geek communities like it enabled and need to change code:)

Suggest not to over-complicate this -- if it ends up in displaying more options to the user, or stuffing the ACP with even more options, it doesn't provide much benefit. I think sensible defaults make more sense than trying to please everyong with options.

Options to please everyone is actual doing the opposite we're aware of that, it's just confusing. The only time this would actually work is when user activation is off, in those scenarios we could log in the new user. It's really minor detail for now though really.

I'm curious as to why this was bumped to 4.0 instead of 3.2 (or 3.1). Just wondering... :)
