#48345 new feature request

Add Caps lock message to login screen

Reported by: dartiss Owned by:

Component: Login and Registration Keywords: needs-patch needs-design
Focuses: ui Cc:


Users are often experiencing issues logging in which is a result of them having CAPS LOCK on, without them realising. Many wireless keyboards too don't have a light on them, which makes noticing this even trickier.

There are a number of plugins available that will flag to the user when the CAPS LOCK is on (a message rather than a warning as it may be intentional!) but it would make sense for this to be added into core (possibly alongside other request improvements, such as the ability to display the typed password).

Apologies if this is already a ticket - I did look but my search-fu on Trac isn't great.

  • Component changed from General to Login and Registration
  • Keywords needs-patch needs-design added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

Thanks for this one, @dartiss! IF this gets implemented, it should probably be added to the user edit screen as well.

I'm going to move this to future release as I think this would be a good enhancement. It would be great to get some design guidance here.
