Password Strength Meter Should Compair Both Fields

The password strength meter should tell the user if the two password fields don't match. This feature is not longer just in the user profile, it's also on the install page. I think users would expect it to tell them if their password fields didn't match without submitting the page.

I'm moving this to a new ticket from #10396

Replying to dd32:

This lacks Javascript feedback on mis-matching passwords, Does someone feel like taking a stab at that?

Replying to dancole:

js_pass_check_a.diff is a development only patch for checking the second password field against the first. I tested out the code and it works perfect. Might want to check over the coding standards though. I didn't change the JavaScript files that are actually being used because I don't know how to minimize them.

Replying to dd32:

I'm not sure we should modify the password strength script, But at the same time, i'm not sure adding another one is suitable either.

What are other developers thoughts on that?

  • Priority changed from normal to high

Just pushing the priority higher, IMO, Some feedback should be provided. Since this is used in the installer as well, it would be best to inform them.
