[resolved] Password strength meter not working (5 posts)

    I am using WPUF but on profile page my Password strength meter was not working may be it is conflicting with default Password-strength-meter.js in wordpress.
    Thanks in advance for help

    I'm experiencing the same problem. The meter "alarms" while still typing the second password and turns red with the mismatch message. If the passwords match, the red disappears, but the mismatch message does not, nor does the plugin analyze the strength of the password.

    Using latest version of wpuf and WP 3.8.1.

    The primary reason I'm using this plugin was to find an alternative way for users to update their profile, especially their password.

    This thread has been open for a month with no response from the developer and reported previously, with the older threads just closed without resolution. Will look elsewhere for a similar plugin.

    Not sure if you are still looking for an answer to this, or maybe it will help someone else in the future. But I was having the same problem and got the indicator to work by doing the following

    Ok it turns out the issue is that the password strength plugin (which is a default wordpress plugin and not WPUF’s) is not calling a required js file when used with WPUF

    I managed to get it to work by adding the following to the “wp-content/plugins/wp-user-frontend-pro/wpuf-functions.php” file

    * Enqueue script for password strength meter
    function password_score_script() {
    wp_enqueue_script( ‘zxcvbn-async’, ‘/wp-includes/js/zxcvbn-async$suffix.js’, array(), ’1.0.0′, true );

    add_action( ‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘password_score_script’ );

    Add the above to the end of the functions file and it should then work as expected.
