Hi Liam,

Considering getting this. I have two questions?

1) What does the windows password requirements relate to exactly? What exactly are the requirements?

At least 8 characters
At least one number
At least one uppercase letter
Doesn't contain username

What is XenForo's default Maximum Password length, and what does this add-on allow for a declared maximum amount?

Could also add a blacklist for passwords people can't use, and allow imports via text files (so import common passwords e.g. password, 123456 and not allow those).

I seem to be getting this error for a lot of users since installing this addon. I did import my forums from an old phpbb3 board. XenForo_Exception: Cannot generate authentication for this type. - library/XenForo/Authentication/PhpBb3.php:33

Liam W updated Password Requirements with a new update entry:
