The Password field is great for entering passwords or other private information. Entered characters are displayed as dots, so it is not readable.
If you use the User Registration Add-on and map the password field to the WordPress password, the password will not be saved in Formidable.
Standard field options
A Password field has the following options:
- Field type
- Read Only
- Field key
- CSS layout classes
- Label position
- Field size
- Before & After Input
- Conditional logic
Field specific options
Use the 'Require Confirmation' option to require a user to confirm that the information they entered in a field is correct. For more information see the Confirmation fields page.
Would you like to translate the specific error messages such as 'Passwords require at least 8 characters'? Learn more about how to translate strings in Formidable Pro.
Password strength meter
Check the box to 'Show password strength meter' to show a password requirement list under the password field. As the user types, each red X in the password indicator will turn to a green checkmark as the requirement is filled. When the option to 'Require a strong password' is not checked, the strength meter is a guideline and is not enforced with validation.
Default values and field icons
The default value icons can be used to specify whether the text entered in a Password field on the form builder page should be a default value or a placeholder. Learn more about how to set a placeholder in a Password field.
Field action icons allows you to duplicate, delete, and/or move a field on the form builder page. See the field action icons article for more information.
Display password fields
Display the value submitted in a Password field in a form's confirmation message, email, or View. Just insert [x], where x is the ID or key of the Password field.
If you are mapping a Password field to the password option in a Register User action, you will not be able to display the password value. A user's WordPress password is not saved in Formidable database tables.
