    Is there any hack to change password without go out blog interface? Is there any way to make this hack automatically work if the user continues using a default password ("pass123", for example).

    Thanks

    For starters, there aren't default passwords. They are randomly generated using md5.

    Resetting your password outside of your profile, requires accessing the MySQL database.

    Sorry for my mind. I´ll create default passwords to users. Is it possible to do? (I can´t work with MySQL)

    Well, when you create the user in the user panel, you can give them whatever password you want... but the only way to do so outside of the admin controls is to use MySQL, or write a PHP that'll read and update the database with the passwords you want for each user.

    Problem is... I have no idea how to access the MySQL database with PHP.. I'll look into it though when I have some time this weekend, I do love a challenge.
