I noticed the 15-character password request when I hit the Password Reset function on the test website when I wanted to login using my existing account. I also noticed that if you start a brand new ID there, the password requirement drops to 10 characters.
I will look into whether we can change the setting. We probably can. The question left will be, should we really be changing the software to make it less secure?
Either way, please keep the feedback coming.
I have also noticed that certain BBcode isn't recognized (yet). So, for example, youtubeBB3 doesn't work - which kinda throws a shadow over the whole Youtube Video forum we have here.
Another hiccup - we are going to have to re-do access for the Women's Forum (and all the other private areas). I did manage to figure out how to create Groups, and how to give forum-specific access (on Discourse this would be described as "category" specific) to a Group. So that will have to be re-done.
Also, Discourse categories only go 1-level deep - so our Sub Forums (ex. Substitute Teachers) - will need to be re-located, replaced, or re-visited altogether.
