I'm wondering how I can change the network admin add "new user" or "new site" form so that I can set the password instead off having it randomly generated and e-mailed to the new user. There seems to be no real option or plugin for this oddly enough.

I've noticed that user-new.php is different for the main site vs inside /multisite but don't really know what to change.

I want to make it more like the add user form on a normal installation.


What's worked for me in this situation is to use the Gravity Forms plugin with the User Registration Add on. This allows me to create a form for my users to sign up for a sub-site, and allows them to set their user name and password. The plugin also allows me to tie the signups into Mail Chimp, so i can add info automatically to my mail lists. It also ties perfectly into PayPal. The end result is a is a system where users can generate their own website on my network, subscribe to a mail list, and pay all in one take. One example of it in action is at: http://worshiptimes.org/launch-your-website/

The developer option for Gravity Forms is a bit expensive, but with features like this, it is really worth it. Gravity Forms: http://www.gravityforms.com/ Gravity Forms User Reg Add on: http://www.gravityforms.com/add-ons/user-registration/

Hope this helps get you in the right direction.
