Hi,

I'm using smf bridge. And the release 1.0.13 breaks it.

So how can I know which part of the patch is responsible of the new password encoding ?

Thanks

casi123 -

If you are working in a test setup - not production and are willing to *thoroughly* test things out and you do not *expect* any guarantees, I would try switching the "include\joomla.php" file from 1.0.13 with the one from 1.0.12.

That could be the stupidest idea in the world and I make no prediction on how successful you might be. I do not know what other changes were made to that file besides the salt password and I don't know the impact outside of that file, either.

You would be far safer checking where the JoomlaHacks bridge is at, too. I believe it is nearing release.

Thanks,
Amy :)

Yeah, I'm not a Kamikaze !

If someone else is interesting, I post here my experimental patch:

No, I suppose not. Hopefully, that helped you find the new password encoding? Thanks for sharing a possible work around for the SMF bridge.

Amy :)
