Register / Log in WITHOUT hashes

  • Please, people, there is too much source code. Does anyone know where I could find the options of login system.

    First up, the use hashing adds security to the whole process. Just think what happens when some “bad guy” uses scripting to hack his way into your wordpress backend. Without the propper hashes, this will be more difficult.

    Also – especially for educational purposes – it is not wise to store or even transfer unencrypted data like passwords. Even MD5 can be hacked, but it’s way more difficult for “ye average script kid”.

    If you really want to look at the functionality and understand it, check the docs and then lookup the related functions in the sourcecode.

    Let me do your job and dive into the docs…

    And… after stumbling through the docs for about 60 seconds… doing YOUR job in finding the information you need:

    Check http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_login_url and http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_logout_url.

    Futhermore, this (new in 3.0) can enhance your endeavours: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_login_form

    Seems I just resolved your problems… what I can not do for you is to learn how it works. I know (being a PHP/MySQL pro) what magic goes on behind the screens. If you’re a willing learner and know how to “feel” the code, you will understand it too in a matter of minutes.

    Glück auf! 😉
