Force Strong Passwords
Disable? (2 posts)

    This may seem like a strange request but our hosting provider is forcing is us to use this plugin and it is really annoying for our admins (they're basically just resetting their password ever day). Part of the issue is that the password requirements are amazingly hardcore and the error message doesn't really let you know what the solution should be, we just get "Error: please make the password a strong one". There is the explanation text but it reads as more of a suggestion than a requirement.

    My questions, in order of preference:

    1) Is there a way using the filters to "disable" the plugin? What's the best way to do that? Maybe add some nonexistent capability to the slt_fsp_caps_check or add all roles to slt_fsp_weak_roles?

    2) Is there a way to relax the password requirements? For example, only require one upper case letter. I'm thinking that because you are just contracting out the checking to the Dropbox script this isn't possible.

    3) Can we get better error message/requirement text? I see there is slt_fsp_error_message but I'm not exactly sure what constitutes a strong password so I don't know what to put in there. I'm thinking that part of the problem with this is that it's somewhat nebulous what the Dropbox script considers a strong password, so you can't really have hard-and-fast requirements.
