    Hello friends ...

    I just informed from one of my forum user .. he got a problem with non-english password ...

    for expamle :
    username : Mohammed
    Password : محمد

    and Iam sure that my non-english password is correct but when I tried to enter the forum , It said the password is wrong !! and you did 1 mistake of 5 mistakes .. if you make 5 times mistakes you can't enter the site whithin 15 minutes !!

    Note: in beta 4 ... doesn't happened this problem ??!!

    Thanks

          No need to bump between 4 and 9 AM (here).

          In clientscript/md5.js, find:

          Code:
          function str_to_ent(str)
          {
          Under it add:

          Code:
          return str;
          Upload. Does that fix the issue? (you might need to hard refresh to ensure you get the right version)

                The issue here is that there are multiple representations for the same text -- one is unicode entity style (& #xxxx, the other is a standard double-byte representation.

                Change your password to a different non-English one. Now try to login -- any luck?

                      You changed the password via the control panel? I have an idea of how to workaround this problem, but it's probably going to have to be changed across several files.

                      Right now, all I can suggest is using an English (ASCII) password.

                        Mike ...
                        Is that means that there is no way to fix it ??

                        maybe more than 30 users in my forums are using non-english password and they can't enter the site ??

                            I haven't even written the workaround yet...

                            What's the URL to your forum?
