Expire passwords

    Hello,

    Wordpress 3.1.3
    BuddyPress 1.2.9

    I have applied a password strength rule on creating and changing passwords. I now need to expire my users passwords (about 7000+) in order to force them to conform to the rule. I tried using the plugin “PassExpire” but it does not detect any users on my wordpress install. I assume this is because buddypress handles users in a different way, or maybe passexpire is not multisite compatible.

    Has anyone here had experience expiring buddypress passwords? I really need to figure this out. About 1 hour of google searches has turned up no solutions.

    One way is to change all your user’s passwords with some generic-only-you-will-know password.
    Then a user is forced to reset their password when s/he attempts to login next time.

    Read this post for some pointers (especially the ninja section):

    I should state that BuddyPress runs on top of WordPress, so this is technically a WordPress issue.
