WP Password Generator
[resolved] Please Add Email User and Nag User Features (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I am requesting a small feature addition to your WP Password Generator Plugin.

    It would be great to have two additional optional features

    1)email new password to existing user upon profile edit and save
    2)nag user to change password upon login.

    These are present in Simple Password Generator pluign, but not your's.
    However, it does not allow SHOW PASSWORD and WP Password does.

    We currently run WP Password Generator AND Simple Password Generator simultaneously (because WP Password does not include the email user and nag user to change features). These features are very helpful to automate distribution of newly created passwords and to prompt users to make their own password they can remember.

    Both plugins coexist happily except that two different Generate Password button appear on the user profile and the SHOW PASSWORD option on WP Password will not show the passwords generated by Simple Password Generator, sooooo that is why we run them together.

    If we do not need to see a password we can generate it with Simple Passwords, but if we need to see the password that has been generated then we use the WP Passwords button.

    At least it all works, but it would be nice to have only one plugin to maintain.

    Thanks for considering this request.

    Hi SooBahkDo,

    I apologize for the lateness of my reply, I didn't receive my usual notifications for support tickets.

    With WP Password Generator I've always strived to keep it as simple as possible (the "do one thing and do it well" mentality) - getting into things like password nags quickly complicates the plugin and wouldn't always be necessary. After all, you're generating a unique password for them - why do they need to generate another one or worse, risk them changing it to something less secure?

    It's worth watching Trac ticket #24633 which, once implemented, will essentially make both WP Password Generator and Simple User Password Generator obsolete (hence my hesitancy to put much more work into the plugin) as the password generator will become part of the WordPress core. in fact, it sounds like they're using Jake's plugin as a model for the core implementation. I'd keep my eye on the ticket and offer input/code to the core team as the feature develops.

    Thank you for using and supporting WP Password Generator!

    -Steve
