WP Password Generator

WP Password Generator takes the hassle out of creating new WordPress users by generating random, secure passwords with one click.

2.6

  • Added a filter wp_password_generator_args which allows to modify the args supplied to the built-in wp_generate_password() function
  • Fixed bug where a "0" was always being appended to the end of generated passwords (thank you to Rig Kruger and Peter Berce for bringing it to my attention!)
  • Added a languages directory and loaded the text-domain so translations are applied automatically
  • Added Dutch translation (thanks David Mosterd of (CodPress)[http://www.codepress.nl/] of CodePress)
  • Fixed copy-paste error when assigning min/max-length params for passwords (thanks Robert Paprocki)

2.5

  • Added password generator to user-edit.php and profile.php at the suggestion of Dave Griffin (#1)
  • Added Spanish translation (corrections/improvements welcome, I translated myself with Google Translate and my two years of high school Spanish).

2.4

  • Added i18n support and included the POT file in the plugin files
  • Replaced instances of bind() and delegate() with jQuery's on() method
  • Added instructions for overriding wp_generate_password() in the README file
  • Promoted Chris Van Patten (VanPattenMedia) from "special thanks" to a plugin contributor
  • Plugin repo has been migrated to GitHub: https://github.com/stevegrunwell/wp-password-generator - Trac will only receive named releases (though not much has changed in that respect).

2.3

  • Now works in WordPress installations that don't use the standard wp-content/ directory location
  • Improved javascript performance

2.2

  • Use the pluggable wp_generate_password() function to handle password creation rather than WP Password Generator's internal function
  • Removed 'characters' key from the plugin settings

2.1

  • Ability to show generated password beside the generate button
  • "Send this password?" checkbox only auto-checked the first time a password is generated. Subsequent generations will not re-check this box.
  • Store permitted characters and min/max password lengths in the wp_options table to prevent them from being overridden in future updates
  • jQuery functions are wrapped to allow the $ shortcut while in no-conflict mode
  • Better adherence to WordPress code standards

2.0

  • Clicking 'Generate Password' will also update the password strength indicator and automatically check the 'Send Password?' checkbox
  • Removed generator button from the user-edit screen as these passwords aren't sent to the user
  • Ajax call now uses admin-ajax for better support for non-standard WordPress installations
  • Better adherence to the WordPress coding standards
  • Updated the special thanks section of readme.txt
  • Counter in wp_password_generator_generate() will only increment if a character has been added to the password string
  • wp-password-generator.js now passes JSLint

1.1

  • Passwords now vary between 7 and 16 characters

1.0

  • First public version of the plugin
