Updated Registration and Login page


I have 2 suggestions, both of them pretty standard and something I find unusual to not already be implemented...
  1. Include password requirements in the registration page
    I just signed up for an account and registered using a typical password; Long and complicated with plenty of symbols and random characters.

    However, unknown to me was that my account would be created successfully, however I'd be unable to actually login with my password. I ended up exceeding my limit of 5 attempts, waited 15 minutes, tried again, failed, and then reset my password. I figured I must have messed up the registration so I tried changing my password, which worked, but once again I was locked out of my account and had to do another password reset.

    For anyone who uses a password manager, a password like this is typical. I don't know of many sites that don't mention password requirements, or at-least throw an error if your password is invalid. I haven't bothered to change it again since I have no idea what my limits are.
  2. Provide a dedicated login page with a unique title/slug
    Lots of password managers (KeePass in my case) rely on a unique title/url to know when you are on the login page of a certain site and then either fill in the login form or allow for reliable auto-typing.

    I've been unable to find a dedicated login page to register with KeePass, so I have to use a wildcard (*) to match all pages on the domain. It's a not a deal-breaker, but I know it's not very difficult to edit the title of an html template or just add a new page for login.php that presents a basic login form.
