Support » Developing with WordPress » check plain password against database

  • WordPress Version 2.6.2

    I am currently trying to develop a plugin that lets users login to customized posts by merely entering their user password, yet not necessarily their username.

    Now I need to check a plain text password against user_pass in the database.

    As of now I am using a standard installation, having not touched AUTH_KEY, SECURE_AUTH_KEY or LOGGED_IN_KEY.

    For example:
    user_pass contains $P$9N57BH8U2F6jYtGP.1oluN9VF63FsI1 (plaintext: carrot)
    How would I arrive in encrypting “carrot” to the above string?
