registering for citroen website, meaning of 'alphanumeric'?

Post by tim »

wtf.... I am trying to register on the other website so I can get access to the technical info they apparently have, the site says that your password has to be "alphanumeric". Could someone please translate that into the English language???? :?

Must contain at least one letter (alpha) and at least one number (numeric) and there's probably a minimum number of characters (alpha or numeric) too. Sometimes the password requirement includes at least one CAPITAL an one symbol like underscore or asterisk.

Great, thanks for that. I'm in now, but will have to wait for an administrator to throw a switch or summat.as I still can't access the PDF files.

Should be in now tim, takes a little longer to authorise new users when no details are filled in as the application gets sent to a moderation que.
