    MivaLearn bugs here

    MivaLearn offers me to create a password.

    When I'm using something like: njs5KLXnDzxlD17hhzLE!
    I get an error.

    Your password must be at least 8 characters long
    Looks like the password is just too long and the wrong message is displayed. But why would anyone limit me in a max password length?!

    Thanks for the information about the wrong error message, we will take a look into that issue.

    As for the password length the system we are using has the following restrictions on user passwords:

    - 20 characters maximum
    - 8 characters minimum
    - 1 upper case
    - 1 lower case
    - 1 number
    - 1 special character

    I am not sure the reasoning on the limitation of the password but I am sure they have their reasons.

      I don't believe you store passwords raw.
      If you encrypt them, you shouldn't really care about the maximum password length... unless it's more than the permitted POST size :-)

      Implementing high levels of security with 2 factor etc., while limiting the password length looks strange.
      It's pretty much same like Bank of America did not allow to use special characters while creating the passwords (not sure about now, but 5 years ago that was the case).


        Did anybody proofread the screens?

        LOL - I am finding typos and in one section the audio doesn't match the pages.

        Do ya need a proofreader? I have references

          No, they just hired a former IKEA marketing writer...Lopps is the latest and greatest way to create programming loops.

            IKEA, huh? How fun would it be to see the whole Learn site done with illustrations (no text at all) of either happy or sad people wielding hammers. "Bang here to add a custom field to your product page template."
