The passwords problems will terminate once forever on next coming (hope within today if will be possible, or tomorrow) 2.3.6.
Bcript library, will be removed, all hash and check about password, done via native Php functions.

Have been resolved several bugs about passwords flows:
all external frontend plugins will works fine now, not just the default wp.
All password, of any kind, will match between phpBB and wp, also these containing special chars, causing a mismatch between the resulting hash, mainly caused by an htmlspecialchars() call that after php 5.4 return a wrong value for the passed string if it contain special chars, but not only by this.

More about the password flow has been fixed to work fine, ever, on any scenario, all aspects seem now to be covered and all bugs about finally fixed.

I'm so happy to terminate this aspect successfully, since it has not been so easy to reverse all problems now resolved!
2.3.6 is coming!
