Need Help With Password Resets
« on: August 03, 2019, 07:53:31 am »
Hi Guys,
I am running the 3.5.5 version of php efiction on my site. I'm having an issue with resetting passwords. For some reason if you request a reset, it does not send the password quickly.
What happened is that for some weird reason, my password worked for awhile then quit.
Is there a way to set passwords from the main software on the server?

I also had an issue before I requested a password change tonight, it was not letting me add story chapters to my own stories when logged in as the administrator.

Suggestions?
Thanks
Tina

If you are the owner ( and use PHPMyAdmin) you can change your password in the database since efiction uses MD5 for the passwords.
