I created this Password Generator plugin for WordPress. Running my own random password generator I can be sure 1) the passwords are truly random, and 2) the passwords are not copied or saved at all when they are generated.
My plugin adds a shortcode to WordPress and accepts the following parameters:
- count=’20’ (the numbers of passwords you want generated)
- length=’12’ (the length of the passwords)
- case=’mixed’ (upper, lower, or mixed case)
- special=’$,#,%,^,&’ (a list of the characters to use a special characters), or ‘false’ for none
The display below has been enlarged to make the passwords easier to see. I did this through CSS, which will not come though when you copy and paste.

Features to consider for the next version …
The generator only includes 1 special character per password. Should more special characters be included in the password? Should it be optional how many (2, 3, 4, etc) are included?
I don’t like my mixed case function, it’s not guaranteed to include both upper and lower case. Got any ideas for a function to do this correctly and efficiently? I’m open for suggestions.
