Support » Plugin: Import and export users and customers » Setting Password length?

  • Resolved alan555


    Thanks for a great plugin which works well on my site, but I would like to increase the length of the password that is auto generated.

    Here is the process I use:

    I import the user name and email address fields only
    The plugin and WP create the new password but it is only 12 characters long. If you create a user manualy in WP – USERS it has a password about 20 Characters in length

    Is there a way to change the auto generated password length without having to add pwds to the CSV file?

    Currently there is no way to do it, but yes, we could add a filter.

    Would it helps?

    Yes that would be good as I would like to have longer auto generated passwords.

    Actually what would be great would be to auto generate User names as well 🙂

    We cannot make it longer by default because most of users, do not want it.

    Autogenerate usernames also would be a longer task, so if you want, we can talk and you can pay the develop.

    We have just added the filters, look at it:
    wp_generate_password( apply_filters( 'acui_auto_password_length', 12 ), apply_filters( 'acui_auto_password_special_chars', true ), apply_filters( 'acui_auto_password_extra_special_chars', false ) );

    Thanks for your messages and please if you have one minute and you use this plugin, do not forget to write a good review and make a donation to make possible this plugin, and this support.

    Many users don’t want to use long passwords but WP creates Pwds up to 20 characters in length for a good reason. I would prefer to use long passwords on a website than fix a hacked website.

    Can I use this filter? If so can where do I add the code?

    Yes we have added those filters for you.

    You can use in any other code, in your child theme… wherever you want.

    If you need personal help, we can provide you proffessional support.
