Before releasing Flatpress 1.2, you should think about the fact that at the moment a password of 6 characters is still allowed when running the setup :shock:

At the moment you should use a password with at least 11 characters, consisting of upper/lower case letters, numbers and special characters.

See file: /setup/libs/main.lib.php

And by the way, some of the error texts are not included in the language files :o

It's quite disputed if this really creates strong passwords, since people tend to just use something like "[somesimplepassword]1!" (and after being prompted for a password change, simply "[the samesimplepassword]2!".
I for myself find the xkcd method quite helpful (which even works without any special characters).

I just don't want to nag the FlatPress users too much there. I'd rather create a wiki page that discusses this topic and offers some good ways to create secure passwords.

See file: /setup/libs/main.lib.php
line 67: ...Setup is running: if you are the owner, you can delete ' . SETUPTEMP_FILE . ' to restart...
line 99: ...is not a valid username. Username must be alphanumeric and should not contain spaces. ...
line 103: ...Password must contain at least 6 non-space characters ...
line 106: ...Passwords did not match...
line 109: ...is not a valid email address ...
line 113: ...is not a valid URL...

And on the subject of passwords. Yes, there are too many passwords in lists. And yes, a 6-digit password ran through within an hour with all possible options.

Therefore, a 11-digit password, even if it is simple, takes a "little" more time :D

Ah, I see. The localization of the setup steps is on my list, but I didn't want to delay the release of 1.2 any further.

Length it is, indeed. Length, and the absence of personal information (names, birth dates, ...) and known phrases (song lyrics etc).


And to mention this explicitly: Thanks Matthias, for the huge part you contributed to the latest FP release again! :)
