      Description

      Email:

      "Hi,

      I am sending you this email becuase I cannot login to forums. I can login fine with main page and post comments but not on the forum.

      I have tried resettting my password but this doesnt work as I have not got a reset email from hwbot. I have done a thread about this issue and it was fine for a while but is not now.

      this is my account:

      http://hwbot.org/user/jimba/

      thank you,

      Jamie"

        2 problems:

        - reset password mails from the forum don't arrive, this one is for Frederik :-)
        - editing your forum password via the main website profile didn't update the salt in the forum table, this should be fixed

        The issue is sort of fixed: the user can now reset his forum password in his account settings (http://hwbot.org/profile/), but not in the forum directly. The problem here is that the forum mailer is not working. When a user tries to change his password through the forum, there will be a message that says "mail has been sent", but that's not true.

        So, two options:

        1) forum mailer gets fixed => user can change password both through frontpage and forum
        2) policy change: user can't change forum password through the forum => there should be a message saying the user has to change the password through the front page.

        What do you think, Frederik ?

        We'll go with the policy change, if a user lost his forum password, he should change it on the main website in his profile. We should add a message on the forum password recovery page that guides the user to his main website profile.

        Okay, great. So, let's close this task and create a new one for the message ?
