Hey, people, I hope you can help me. I have recently started to learn PHP and unfortunately I can't resolve this myself. I already posted this on the German Forum
but no one replied since then.
I would like to remove the whole hashing process of the login and registering system of WordPress - instead of md5($password).$salt I want only
if( $password == $password_from_db)
*allow the user to access the password protected area*
The passwords should be saved as (readable) plain text so that I could read them in the database. I know that, it is very unsecure and the admin could manipulate too much but he can also manipulate everything without this information. It is just wanted for educational purposes and not for a public website. I already had the idea to look for all 'functions' that do anything with with md5() and delete them but I think, it could be easier to write a plugin for this purposes. I would like to program this by myself but unfortunately I do not have enough knowledge for this.
Thank you for your usefull answers.
