[resolved] Help anyon can login to my website! (7 posts)

    Hello

    I just noticed that anyone can login to my website and I can't find a solution to make the password work:

    If a user simply type in my name or any users name and leaves the password field empty they can login and take control of the website.

    is there a setting or a file containing some text I can edit to make the site password protected again.

    Possibly a plugin issue. To find out, deactive all plugins and if the issue disapears, reactivate theme one-by-one until the issue reappears.

    Start by resetting the site to the default theme, and renaming the plugins folder and see if that corrects the issue. Then one by one, turn on each plugin to see which one is causing the issue.
