I encountered a strange bug when users are trying to enter a new password that states "Password Strength Unknown" regardless of the amount of characters (capitalized etc.) that are entered into the input field.

What other information can I provide to help solve this issue?


Found out the issue, for some reason beautifying the code before save messed with formatting. By downloading a fresh wp-login.php I was able to resolve this


If using an SSL when setting up your site it is very common to see this issue.

I found using

$_SERVER['HTTPS'] = true; 

At the top of wp-config.php fixes this problem.
