Assigning a password to new signups

I’d like to have a signup form with no password field, where all new signups are automatically assigned set password (I’ll notify them of the password in an email).

I know I can do this in Memberstack because it says so here: https://help.memberstack.io/post/passwordless-login

But can someone tell me how to implement this? That help page gives the following code but says nothing about where to put it, or how.

<input type=“password” style=“display:none;” value=“q34qurq3289q9n9we8rqn" ms-field=“password” disabled>

Anyone have any pointers? Thank you!

Hey Justin, you’ll need to add that to a custom signup form on your site.

Are you using a site builder that supports data attributes (Webflow, HTML/CSS, or Duda)?

If so, you’ll need to create a signup form that goes something like this.

  1. The form element has data-ms-form="signup"
  2. The email field has data-ms-form="email"
  3. And your hidden password field goes somewhere inside the form.

.

<form data-ms-form="signup">
   <input type="email" data-ms-member="email">
   <input type=“hidden” value=“q34qurq3289q9n9we8rqn" data-ms-member=“password”>
   <input type=“submit” class="button" value="Create an account">
</form>

Does this help? I can provide a more helpful answer once I know what site builder you’re using.

I’m using Webflow, I just don’t get where I’m supposed to put the extended code chunk you kindly gave me above @DuncanHamra. Thanks for responding! I understand how to do the custom attributes because I’ve done them for everything else in the Memberstack setup. Thanks for anything else you can advise.

Got it! This should help then

<input type="hidden" id="pw" name="setpw" value="2384sso89dsd8sd96a7" data-ms-member="password">

Ah great, thank you! Inserting a new HTML embed in the middle of the form like that — was the not-obvious part. Thanks!

I get it all to work, but my password box isn’t hidden when I’ve published the site. Any ideas?
