    Following the example here for login authentication:
    http://www.amember.com/docs/API/Authentication

    Basically, if I replace the PASSWORD field (in here it's '1111' as an example) with anything that contains a #HASHTAG, it returns a bad password.

    I am doing a form that hits this page sending the login and password through a form, then runs that example.
    It works great, except if the user has a # in their password, then it says bad password.
    I tried toying around with urlencode, but to no avail.

    Thanks for any help!

    Hello,

    It is strange. Exact symbol within password does not matter.

    Do you mind to contact us in helpdesk?

    I will check your code.

    Best Regards.
