Spelling of Password should be Passwords instead of Password on installation page

Description

Password as the descriptive text is talking about Passwords in the abstract, rather that this specific one.
It should be "Passwords" instead of 'Password'. It is being used in multiple files.

Usernames and Passwords should be displayed in the same manner on a single page.

I think Password is correct because it is referring to a single password that you have to enter multiple times.

Replying to MikeHansenMe:

I agree with you but the same password rules applies to all passwords not to specific one like usernames refer #30034 .

I think it might be okay to be "Passwords" (would like opinion of docs and text folks), but definitely not "The passwords".

Thanks for your nice suggestion, I've updated the patch file. Removed 'The' word before of Passwords hint text.
Also removed 'Hint' text, for maintaining consistency on same page. We are not using the 'Hint' before of Username although giving hint, like passwords.

Please let me know if you have any other suggestion.

Thanks

  • Component changed from Upgrade/Install to Text Changes
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release
  • Version changed from trunk to 2.7

Going from "Passwords should be" to "make it stronger" seems off a bit. I'm not sure that them would work either. I do like the idea of matching "Usernames" without "the".

The current text for passwords appears to come from [8722].

As this ticket has 'Future Release' milestone. Can we consider it for 4.3 ?

Following the recent changes to password-setting flows, the only place where this string is currently in use is on the password reset form.

  • See password_install_4.3.png for the new password flow on the install screen (generator + strength meter + single input, no hint).
  • See password_reset_4.3.png for the reset password flow that comes along with the strength meter + a generated password + the hint.

In light of the above changes:

  1. The password entry field is now only a single input on reset pass, thus fitting with the singular nature of "the password"
  2. The password hint no longer accompanies the username hint

Closing as wontfix. Thanks for the work everybody.
