Password strength regular expression "failure description"

Hi Joe, I'm looking at implementing the password strength regular expression--I found a great tutorial that should help anyone trying to use this great security addition.

However, one important piece is missing--a place to specify a custom "failure" message that will show users in plain terms why their password was rejected (e.g. "Passwords must be 8 characters long, with one upper case character and one special character or number"). Without this, they will just be left to guess why their chosen password isn't strong enough.

Thanks as always!

Jamie

Re: Password strength regular expression "failure description"

Hi Jamie,

Currently the message comes from a resource file so it can be localized but I agree it would be better if it could be customized. I will add an item in my project tracker for this.

Note that it does show meaningful information based on the settings for minimum password length and minimum non alpha numeric chars if the entered password does not meet those criteria.

Best,

Joe

Re: Password strength regular expression "failure description"

Thank you Joe! I woke up this morning and realized that I could change it through the resource file too, but a customization is definitely better so I don't make a (small) fork like that. Jeez, when you're thinking about mojoPortal in your sleep, maybe it's time for a vacation. wink
