As of yesterday, I've improved our security, and really well. I've encrypted the admin directory twice with two different encryption types, and I've changed passwords to work a little differently as well (and even if someone does get my account AND the admin directory, they still won't be able to access ACP because of a security pin).

If you can't login to your account, there's two choices. One, request a new password for your account. Click "login" in the top right, and then click on "Lost your password?". From there, you should be able to continue the process without my instruction, but keep the new password sent in your email in your clipboard, then go to your User CP and change it to what you'd like.

As for the second choice, if you're having major issues, contact me on Skype. Be sure you try the first choice before even considering contacting me, because (1) it's faster, (2) it's easier and less time consuming. I'm not online all the time, and Inhale doesn't have admin control panel access (and there's a very good reason behind why he doesn't have ACP :3 ).

I've also done a little optimization to the site to increase the load time/speed. In addition to all the security enhancements and speed optimization, I'll be editing .htaccess. Some directories are already unaccessable, as part of our little security update.

If you only came to read why you can't login to your account, you can go ahead and stop reading this thread now. I'll be going over some updates.
  • Google SEO URLs added (ie /Thread-threadname )
  • Speed optimized
  • Site security multiplied
  • Some broken images have been fixed
  • Modified 404 & 403 pages
