    Hi,

    At the moment, the input size of the password field on my signup form is:

    <input id="pass-0" type="password" name="pass" maxlength="32" size="15">

    I'd like to increase it, but can't figure out how to do it. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Maria,

    That is in the settings.
    • Go to Setup/Configuration --> Global
    • You can set the min and max password length for both username and password.

    Grant,

    That changes the username and password length, but not the field length on the signup form. The current length only shows 15 characters, which people tend to find quite annoying when choosing a longer username or password.

    My aim is to have as few people as possible leaving the signup page because they find it difficult or awkward. Lengthening the field would help a bit.

    Where can I change the field length?

    Thanks.

    Maria

    <input type="password" size="15" name="_pass" id="_pass-0" />

    you may be able to do some css styles on the '_pass-0'

    Create your own template in /templates folder and customize that through theme.css in there.
