I was wondering how the code for random assignment of password is
implemented in the admin's membership mass-subscribe function. What if
there was a reserved word, say RANDU, that the subscription script would
recognize. If you created a subscription box like I did, but in the hidden
field put in RANDU, it would call the random algorithm that is used by mass
subscribe to assign a password for the user.
Those tiny boxes sure are convenient, it would be nice if a little hook
like this could be put in to support it.
