i did a test myself with a test user and it works fine, only the forgot email is flagged as spam, maybe that is the problem.

I did full reinstall still not working works for admin accounts only.

What is used to hash passwords Md5() or sha1() was thinking I'll build a custom request in dhtml pop up using comfirm email with rand() + sha1() for security but need it to work with database & script. I did a test with below code but after entered new password to user account that password didn't work but password was added to database..


$hash=rand(0,9999);
$your_password=sha1($hash);

$ref=mysql_connect($host, $username, $password);
mysql_select_db($db_name) or die("unable to connect");

mysql_query("UPDATE jcow_accounts SET password='$your_password' where email='$email_to'") or die("ERROR:".mysql_error());

mysql_close($ref);

re: falconeThe paid version send email correctly and use the "click here" link to retrieve the password. You'll be redirected t othis address http://websitename.com/member/chpassdo/49c2......

But that link doesn't work...the error message shown "not a valid code".

do you have an idea?

I had the same problem, So I went back to a early Version and just copied the old chassdo code and replaced the newer code with the older one and it worked fine after that.
