vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (11 votes - 4.55 average) Installs: 56

What is this?
This mod will allow you to force user passwords to be at least a certain length.


Features
  • Force minimum length on:
    • Registration
    • Edit Password
    • Reset Password

I've only tested this mod on vB 4.1.4/4.1.5 (alpha). It should work with previous versions, however I am not sure. If it works for you on an older version, let me know.


Installation
1. Download the `product-password_minlength.xml` file. (* may differ in name based on version)
2. Enter your AdminCP and go to Plugins & Products > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product]
3. Import the product using the `product-password_minlength.xml` file. (* may differ in name based on version)
4. Configure the mod in AdminCP -> Settings -> Options -> User Registration Options


Upgrading
In many cases, all you'll need to do to upgrade is follow the installation instructions above, but set "Allow Overwrite" to "Yes".


Changelog
Version 1.0.2, 07/05/2011
  • Changed the "Check Method" choice from a drop down to radio buttons (Boofo )
  • Changed how the "UserId" "Check Method" works - it now is used for escluding User ID's
  • Fixed a bug in the plugin for updating profile - was not checking if a new password had been entered.

Version 1.0.1, 06/07/2011
  • Introduced three new options and one new plugin.
  • The new options are based around a "Check Method". You can choose to enforce the min. password length by userid, usergroup, or 'none' (all).

Version 1.0.0, 05/31/2011
  • Initial release.

EDIT:

Works in 4.2.2. Thank you!

Would be amazing to have a way to also force users to include upper case letters / numbers / special characters in addition to a minimum password length.

I saw that this guy is building on this mod and trying to implement it, but it seems a big buggy still and i am reluctant to install it until it is more secure.

Thanks Eric!

Any plans for an updated version?

I installed it and applied the min password length checking and could still login with a test user in a test usergroup that only had a 3 digit password.

:-(
I have it working on 4.2.3 and before was working on 4.2.2

I was working under the misconception that it would prompt a user with a short password to change it upon logon. This is not the case.

It tells you all it can do in the op post I know many who download plugins never read all the info but it does help to

Features
  • Force minimum length on:
    • Registration
    • Edit Password
    • Reset Password
If you ask the coder to see if they will add the options you need they might update it

Just upgraded to 4.2.2 PL 4 and this plugin caused a blank register.php page. Disabled and the blank page disappeared.

Apologies for waking this thread up after a number of years. But does anyone know (or can confirm) if this modification works with vB 4.2.5?

Thanks
