Summary0017205: If the password used on installation doesn't have at least 8 characters, no error is thrown
DescriptionWhen installing phplist, it asks to set the password for the admin user. When that it's done, it says the password should have at least 8 characters.

But, if you use a trivial password (phplist, as it's used on demo.phplist.com) with less than 8 characters and click "continue", no error nor nothing (not even on the servers logs) is shown. Is not intuitive at all what is happening.

At first I tried with a different browser, and then I realized it might be that the password is less than 8 chars long. What was confusing for me was that I just tried the demo.phplist.com site, so I tried using the same password.

It might be a better user experience if some of the conditions are not met, to say that loudly instead of just doing nothing with no error nor feedback

Mariela, can you make the style of the #initialisecontinue button change when it is enabled?

The functionality here is as follows:

the button is disabled by default (on pageload) and when the length of the password reaches 8 characters the JS will remove the disabled attribute from the button.

At the moment, in both situations, they look the same, which is confusing (see screenshots)

ok, i added the style in https://github.com/phpList/phplist-ui-dressprow/trunk
i don't know if my change solve this problem. I have to do an installation of phplist to check.

Michiel the style is working, when it turns to enable, but there is a bug:
if you write 8 characters button turn to enable BUT, if you then delete some characters it doesn't turn to disabled again.
