( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Quite frankly, it scares me when I forget the password to a web-site, throw my email address in a form, and they send it to me. I mean, why would you want to do that? The person doesn't remember their password anyway, so why not assign a new one? How does it help anyone to maintain plain text (or ROT13 (or some other useless encryption method)) passwords? Just allow them the option to change it. That way if you send them the password "8%dlEi=Q" they don't have to live with that, although I would add some functionality to ensure that the password is >= 6 chars and includes >= 2(digits or special chars). Use their email and a hint to allow them to have a new password assigned.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
