The password does not contain the required characters

Post by Sukinoz » Mon Feb 12, 2018 6:08 pm

Sorry, i can not find where to post this.

In this joomla forum, I go to "my account panel" > try to edit my password, but and I always get:

error: The password does not contain the required characters

even with 6 or 8 alfanumeric characters...

can anyone tell if it is a general problem or only mine?

thanks

Following is mentioned as the guideline for the password of this forum.
Password must be between 6 characters and 30 characters long, must contain letters in mixed case and must contain numbers.
Probably this information could be of help.

mixed case?!

there is an error in the Spanish translation:

English: Password must be between 6 characters and 30 characters long, must contain letters in mixed case and must contain numbers.

Spanish now: Las contraseñas deben tener entre 6 caracteres y 30 caracteres caracteres de longitud, y deben ser alfanuméricos.

Should be: Las contraseñas deben tener entre 6 y 30 caracteres de longitud, y deben contener mayúsculas, minúsculas y números.

Re: "The password does not contain the required characters" instructions for Spanish forum users

I see what's happening (even with my small understanding of Spanish) the term "mixed case" may seem a little odd but the adjective "alfanuméricos" is not clear enough.

Example of a valid mixed case plus numeric (between 6-30 characters) password:

miXeDc453

Therefore, the following "alfanuméricos" examples would be all be invalid:
  • miX3d
  • mixedcase
  • MIXEDCASE
  • mixedCASE
  • m1x3dc453

the correct tranlation should be:

Las contraseñas deben tener entre 6 y 30 caracteres de longitud, y deben contener mayúsculas y minúsculas mezcladas y números.
