Full Version: Reset Passwords '_Users' table

Hullo,

Is it possible to reset all passwords for members stored in the '_Users' table using solely using the Email column and Username column?

I see this thread: http://community.mybb.com/thread-92145.html, but without any mention of a solution.

The passwords should be generated randomly and sent by email.

Thanks,

You're going to need a plugin or a sole PHP script to do this.
I had one for 1.2x but need to redo it entirely for 1.6x. It's not compatible. I need this as well.
You willing to pay for this at all?

I am looking for something free at this time. Although, I don't want to disparage your offer.
temporary fix might be to change all the users passwords with a single
password ( thru SQL query ) AND send mass mail with new password
& ask users to change the password to their choice ..

I have to bear in mind some members may never change their passwords. Only a percentage of the total users are active (or let us always assume that - for security).

I would rather such accounts lay inactive with secure passwords.
