comment What techniques can a user employ to achieve a password rated “strong” in the WordPress password checker
hmm ... well I had a check and drupal does seem to have something similar, but it's still wordpress, even if drupal does something similar ... essentially the official tester doesn't give a strong rating anywhere ... dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/209/zxcvbn/test/index.html

It is specific to WordPress isn't it? Why do you think it could be asked about another app? I know the zxcvbn system is used elsewhere but WordPress has a very specific use of it from what I'm aware of, and it's that aspect that I'm asking about.

I see in the help that I can ask questions about plugin and theme development but I don't see anywhere stating explicitly that the questions need to be specifically about code, but please point it out if it's there. Also I'm not certain that the answer to this question wouldn't include code even if that was the case; to be honest I doubt that I'll get what I need from this without some modification to the theme or by creating a custom plugin, but it makes more sense to ask if there's a human way around it first.

Mark I think this has nothing to do with security ... it might be UI/UX but even if it is; regardless it's WordPress UI/UX. I just want to know how to use the password checker. If it's there it stands to reason that it should be usable, but I haven't figured out how to use it. Whether strong passwords are enforced or not is irrelevant because the end user should be able to achieve a strong password regardless; otherwise the checker serves no purpose. Also BTW I have tons of other security stuff in place, strong passwords are only a small part of it, but one I'd like to keep preferably.

While I'm sure your method seems to work well for you, I have my own system which has worked perfectly up to now. I gave you a downvote because from what I can tell you're not answering the question at all ... unless you're saying that I CANT enforce strong passwords. Are you? If not do you have a suggestion for how to communicate a method to create them to clients?

thanks ... yes but if I give that information to a client and they try, say as I did, a slight variation, which they might even see as an improvement ... eg apples ocean salmon fish it comes up as weak, so it's not communicable really

comment How Can I setup WP CLI on Windows development machine running AMPPS?
Thanks ... I ended up going with vagrant, which might be a bit overkill but I can appreciate what you're suggesting ... might try it if vagrant gets the better of me ... not exactly windows friendly any of this stuff
