  • vB 3.6.0 password question

    Hello one and all, I'm in the process of adapting an existing site of mine to use data from the vB database, specifically the username and password.

    On my existing site, I'm using a simple md5() to encode the password in the database, but it would appear that vB 3.6.0 uses a diffrent method. Can anyone tell me what this is, so I can adapt my existing script to do the same thing.

    I would assume it has something to do with the passworddate field in the vb_user table, but I'm not sure.

    Any help you can provide would be most helpful, thank you

    The vB password is also salted. Since this requires custom coding, try asking for help with this over at
