  • Resolved mhartste


    Hi Jeff –

    I think this is a TML issue ???

    When one of my members wants to change their password on the /your-profile/ page they are shown a password strength indicator, and if their password is weak they can tick a checkbox to “Confirm Use of Weak Password”.

    Likewise, an administrator can set a user password at /wp-admin/profile.php and “Confirm Use of Weak Password”.

    But if a user forgets their password and gets a link to reset it on page /login/?action=rp, they are shown the password strength indicator but they cannot change their password until the password strength is at level Medium or higher.

    Is there a way to allow the users to “Confirm Use of Weak Password” on the reset password page, like the other pages?

    And thanks for your consistently prompt replies!

    Another plugin is likely causing this.

    I believe this is part of WordPress itself in a push to improve security

    I am experiencing the same issue, please tell me if you get this resolved!

    Same issue here.
    Default wp-login.php?action=rp shows the “Confirm Use of Weak Password” checkbox, but the TML /resetpass/ does not.

    I have also noticed that page does not load that autogenerated /wp-admin/load-styles.php file so TML shows 2 input fields instead of 1.

    This is fixed in TML Version 6.4.10. When a user provides a new password on the Lost Password page they now have a checkbox to allow a weak password.

    Thanks, Jeff!

    @mharste indeed, the checkbox is now visible in the latest version, however, the weak password is still not accepted.
    When I use 123 and check weak password, the page seems to refresh, but the new password is not accepted.

    Do you have any other plugins that could be requiring a stronger password?

    iThemes Security required strong password for Subscriber and up. We have disabled it in their plugin, weak pwd from TML is now accepted.
