FS#2605 - Confirmation code

When a new user registers with Flyspray, he or she must enter the confirmation code provided in the email into Flyspray.This confirmation code is long, e.g. e69649aca3acb658553b which could lead to frustration if the user mistypes or remembers the code too badly. A short confirmation code with about 5 characters is better.

I think it is/was never assumed that people type the confirmation code in. Instead they can use the copy&paste functionality of their devices.

For completeness lets document usual ways to use copy&paste:

On desktop select text with mouse and:

  • press middle mousebutton to insert on most linux desktops and even some text consoles.
  • right mouse click-copy and right mouse click-paste on most graphical desktops
  • ctrl-c and ctrl-v as keyboard shortcuts on most desktops. (macOS has similiar keyboard shortcuts)
  • on touch devices like smartphones press and hold on the text and select the wanted text, choose copy and press and hold to insert on the form flyspray confirmation code field.

As a compromise for untechnical users I will reduce the length of the confirmation code from 20 to 10.
