Hi.
I believe this is an easy task for you (but not for me) ... Below are 'working codes' and I want to add/insert PHP validation so MINIMAL PASSWORD entered is 5 digits; if less then it should display error message.

Please modify below codes ... Thanks.
if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {
$report = array(); 
if (empty($email)) {
 $report[] = "Please enter your email address and password!";
 }
  elseif (!empty($email) && (!preg_match("/\w+([-+.]\w+)*@\w+([-.]\w+)*\.\w+([-.]\w+)*/", $email))) {
  $report[] = "Please enter a valid email address e.g. email@domain.com";
  }
   elseif (empty($password)) {
   $report[] = "Please enter your password!";
   }
} // End if all

Something like this?
	if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {
$report = array(); 
if (empty($email)) {
 $report[] = "Please enter your email address and password!";
 }
  elseif (!empty($email) && (!preg_match("/\w+([-+.]\w+)*@\w+([-.]\w+)*\.\w+([-.]\w+)*/", $email))) {
  $report[] = "Please enter a valid email address e.g. email@domain.com";
  }
   elseif (empty($password) || strlen($password)<5) {
   $report[] = "Please enter your password!";
   }
}
