strong passwords

    There are several plugins for WordPress that force users to use strong passwords. I’ve tried a couple with Buddypress 1.8.1 on WordPress 3.6.1 (“enforce strong passwords” and “login security solution”) and they don’t enforce strong passwords if a user goes to the Buddypress “General Settings” page and changes their password there.

    Has anyone found a solution that works with Buddypress to enforce strong passwords?

    @cwjordan just to add – a logged out user can request a password reset link which they can use to enter a new password. This will be another place to enforce strong passwords.

    Yes, however since that is a WordPress page, the existing WordPress plugins for enforcing strong passwords should handle that case. I have checked the “enforce strong passwords” plugin and it does enforce strong passwords for the password reset page. It just doesn’t know about the Buddypress “General Settings” page.

    So what I’d like to know is if there are any strong password plugins, or other solutions, that work well with Buddypress.

    There are pre-submit and post-submit hooks in General Settings
    Look in members\single\settings\general.php

    Write a function that calls your strong password plugin.
