Hi there,
today I discovered every single user (including myself) lost his access to the admin Panel - 650 users :/
Part of users where created manually by me, as a superadmin, and part (500+) with the use of Wordpress Auth Plugin. For a reason I can't explain nobody can log anymore. Is there anything that changed between 141229 and 141210 thay could cause it?

Could you plase help me troubleshoot it? As a sidenote, I think the database itself is ok - all user created surveys are working. Only the login part is messed up.

I would appreciate any help greatly. We run LimeSurvey as a student course for simple psych experiments and there are hundrets of confused studets out there.

Thank you very much

I recommend having a look at the change log first (I attach it below). Maybe you can find something suspicious. There seem to have been some changes to the auth process.

Please note that we can't provide support for adjusted Limesurvey versions. That custom version with the Wordpress Plugin isn't maintained anymore:
