Password being stored plain text in database - causes failed login after password change

edited August 2014 in Bug Reports
I've just setup a new install of FuelCMS v1.2 and have a problem where the passwords for users are being stored as plain text in the database. This is causing a problem whereby the login screen refuses the login because (I guess) it is trying to unhash a password that isn't hashed.

This means I can't change the default admin password. I've also tried creating new users and have the same issue, so I can't create new users and have them login.

I have set an encryption key in the config.php per the install instructions.

Any ideas?

    This has been fixed in the master branch and retagged for 1.2.

    Not sure what's happened there then - I downloaded FuelCMS from Master 9 minutes after that commit (entirely by coincidence, not by design - this is my first try of FuelCMS).

    I'll re-download and let you know what happens.

    Great, that's worked! Thanks for the quick fix.

    Now on to trying this thing out for real...

    but tbh, i dont think store password plain in a good practice

    It's not good practice. That was a regression bug from trying to fix a lockout issue when changing permissions and the fix didn't get properly merged in. It has been fixed for 1.2 and retagged.

    Howdy, I've downloaded the Master from the FuelCMS website, I think I might be having the same problem. What exactly is the fix? I can sign in first time, but then after creating a new password I can no longer sign in. And I can also see my password as text in the database. Thank you.

    @jamesstar - if you downloaded Master on 26th August, then download it again as there was a bug in the version available on that date. More specifically, I believe the fix is in fuel\modules\fuel\models\fuel_users_model.php (although there are also some other minor bug fixes since the release of 1.2, so may be worth downloading the whole Master again anyway).
