Hi Volkan,

It will work, hashed passwords are not affected by the machine key change other than all users will be logged out. If you were logged in before you changed the machine key it may now give an error when it tries to decrypt the role cookie. So, you should log out first before changing the machine key, then you should have no trouble logging in again after changing the machine key. However, if you have site members that may also have a bad role cookie after this change, then you may need to use the workaround I posted on monday in the blog:

Hope it helps,

Joe

This page does also work:

http://www.eggheadcafe.com/articles/generatemachinekey/generatemachinekey.aspx

Make sure you get the whole key and not just part of it. It should look the same size as the one in mojoportal.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Hi Volkan,

If you want to use the Microsoft Translator on your site, browse to http://www.microsofttranslator.com/widget/ and generate the code for the widget. Once you have the code, you can put it into an HTML Content instance on your site.

HTH,
