Fixed Forum Login Bug


icon
After a few rounds of casual debugging of the forum I finally figured out why people were not able to login into the forum even with a valid gallery login... the damn forum was case insensitive which was screwing up the password hash.  The bug has finally been fixed, but you'll need to reset your password if you have a mixed case password. 

I apologize to all you security-minded people who created strong passwords.

that is very nice, because I often have problems to enter in the forum and just read him :)

sounds great, but it still wont let me login to the forums with my gallery account :(
unless the problem comes from the duplicate useless account i made back then that, even if disabled, still exists.

that was me one year ago. looking on the bright side, learning the reset pasword generated by the pass recovery system gave me a complicated pass to learn that now i can use anywhere.
