Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Not even a complicated password allows the creation of account

  • thecovered



    When creating a password for a customer account via the my account or checkout pages and when updating the existing password via the edit account page, no matter how complicated or difficult the password is, as soon as you begin typing into the password field, a sad face πŸ™ appears by the side of the input field and the ‘update’ or ‘register’ buttons are grey-ed out. Here is a screen shot

    I have troubleshooted by deactivating all plugins except Woocommerce and the issue still exists.

    I have researched forums and have added the php snippet below which disables the password strength completely, which worked, but this isn’t the solution I’m looking for.

    function iconic_remove_password_strength() {
    wp_dequeue_script( ‘wc-password-strength-meter’ );
    add_action( ‘wp_print_scripts’, ‘iconic_remove_password_strength’, 10 );

    I also decreased the password strength with the following script but it didn’t do anything. It behaved just as before when no matter how complicated the password is, the ‘update’ and ‘register’ buttons are grey-ed out; not allowing the customer to create an account or update their existing password.

    function iconic_min_password_strength( $strength ) {
    return 2;

    add_filter( ‘woocommerce_min_password_strength’, ‘iconic_min_password_strength’, 10, 1 );
