  • Hello to all,
    I am developing a WordPress plugin and I need to know how user passwords are crypted in the database. Does anybody know the encryption system of WordPress 2.7 passwords in the database?

    Hello cjtannu,
    thank you for helping me, I searched through all the Web!

    Hello Drawnserp,

    Can you make it as a single function ? I wish to create Sign Up page from my own site and allow users to login to wordpress also.. Is it possible to use any single function for password encryption & checking ?

    Thank You.

    Are you meaning the MD5 encryption that wordpress uses to encrypt the passwords? I know when I forgot my password I used a site that converts plain text into MD5 encrypted strings and I simply copied and pasted this MD5 string into my database and it reset my password.
