I am looking to create a function filter or plugin to remove the authentication of the password for wordpress. The registration process for each user is done manually from the backend of wordpress (no frontend registration). So there would still be a level of authentication by just testing if the email is a valid know email in the user database, just no password authentication.
I know there is a security risk involved in doing this but the content the user would access is not very sensitive at all. I wouldnt like this feature to affect the wp-login.php area ideally. That way admins still have to use a password.
I know there are email token solutions for this but I dont want that.
