comment Woocommerce get cart total price in a number format
If I use this in the cart it only works properly when the cart is visited, not if someone uses update cart ... anyone know why?

comment What techniques can a user employ to achieve a password rated “strong” in the WordPress password checker
Down votes should ideally be accompanied by explanations. As the one who asked the question I can say that this does answer my question. It's also well phrased and formatted unless I'm mistaken so it doesn't make any sense to me how someone else can suggest that it didn't answer the question since I'm the one who asked it ... but if I'm mistaken and there's actually a logical reason for the down votes why not share this information properly.

As always it's good to explain downvotes or they don't really count for much do they? :-)

So I tried to see if the zxcvbn ratings matched the wordpress "very weak", "weak", etc ratings ... but from what I can tell they don't, at least not exactly, which means in my view this is specific to wordpres; so I am editing my question to clarify how it relates to wordpress

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

I know ... thanks. Probably have spent enough time on it already though.

comment Background Updates Not Happening
My hosting company have been digging around and they seem to think it could be a plugin somewhere ... one that I have on all my sites ... so I'll set up a test blank install somewhere and just wait and see if it autoupdates when 3.9.2 comes out.

comment Background Updates Not Happening
Yes I did that on one of the sites and it updated fine ... presumably this would be just to rule something out as a culprit because obviously it's the automatic aspect which is the problem.

Thanks ... I installed that. Didn't see anything amiss. What would it show if there was a problem. It was a list of hooks ... any of these I'd need to check in particular?

Note, this is a two year old post so I'm not sure the relevancy of any of this new conversation, but thanks anyway ... however I ended up using question2answer.org which while not a WP plugin, is working well.
