I was wondering if there was a password generator that could be added to registration forms for C5 sites.
you could find a library that randomly generates a string, or you could use rand() or another way
Sounds like programmer territory.
I am just quoting on a job so would only be needed if the job goes ahead.
Could you (or anyone else) let me know how much something like this would cost for a programmer to implement for me?
Attached is a screengrab of the one I'm most familiar with. It's on the CPanel interface when you are setting up a new FTP user.
I think we just need it to generate a password from numbers and upper/lowercase letters.
No need for the checkbox options.
Let's keep it simple!
Then you would be able to create a new external form which uses this input. Sound like it would work for you?
I know HTML and CSS really well but programming is out of my league, and I am fairly new to C5.
I haven't done any external forms or anything like that and I haven't used the form helper.
Would I have to create the reg form outside of C5? Would it need to be a PHP form?
The normal way to do this is to write a form in PHP using C5 helper functions and then save it as an external form which can be inserted as a block. This also allows you to define your own actions to take when the form is submitted, which is something you probably have to do anyway.
Hmmm, still think it's over my head. I would need someone to create the form as well I think.
Never mind, I will load the quote a bit and see if they bite
It can also be done a an Add-on so you dont have to worry about changing any core code. I dont think it would take more than a couple hours to do.
It is very reassuring to know that there are so many people interested in offering their advice and services.
This project is on hold at the moment while the client makes a few decisions (as always!) and I'm carrying on with other work in the meantime.
