The password doesn't meet the specified strength

The password doesn't meet the specified strength

Hi, running DW CS4 to create login page. In the wizard I select to make the password field have no minimum characters as I have run out of options, it doesnt seem to work with anything I try.

I have the UserName as 'EmailAddress' * Password simply looks at the password field in my MySQL db. In testing all users currently have password set to p@55w0rd but each time I try to test this I get:

"The password doesn't meet the specified strength. Your field must contain: a maximum of 20 characters, a maximum of 20 alphabet characters, and a maximum of 10 numbers."

I have tried running the wizard over 5 times now, message above changes depending on what I change in field settings, really frustrating me.

Any ideas appreciated, I see people having issues with CS5 but not CS4, login.php attached.

Thanks

I had the same problem at first. Took me a bit to figure out.
I wonder if there is a place this can be adjusted to the default a person wants fro the site.
I'm sure there is, I just have'nt found it yet

Yes, me too. If I leave defaults I cant login using any combination, if I tinker with settings still can't login so I just set everything as zero and it works! At present ours is an internal CRM system so not that important as I set all users & passwords manually. However if its goes to consumers I will need to sort this.

Thanks for your input.

in the security assist wizard, in the validation settings for the password field, the default is to set the Min Special and Max Special to 0.

this is causing the "@" symbol to fail validation. by setting the Min Special and Mac Special to 0 it will not allow any special characters, it will only allow letters and numbers. you need to change the Max Special to at least 1 (set it bigger if you want to allow more than one) in order to allow a special character in the password.

password validation setting

I want to set the password validation to a very minimum for a simple login, I set the Min characters to 4 and Max to 15 and all other settings to 0, when I run the page, I get a validation error that says "The password doesn't meet the specified strength. Your field must contain a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 15 characters" It will not accept any number of characters that I enter. What an I missing?

So you are using the following settings then?
Max Characters 15
Minimum Characters: 4
Max Alpha: 0
Min Alpha: 0
Max Numbers: 0
Min Numbers: 0
Max Special: 0
Min Special: 0


by setting Max Alpha (In other words maximum number of letters allowed), Max Numbers, and Max Special to 0, you are telling it to not allow any of the characters found on the key board to be entered.

you are overriding the min/max characters settings by setting all of the other max settings to 0, leave them blank instead of using 0.
