    Why not do the obvious and talk to the ISP about resetting the password to the account?

    We do not hack websites for people, nor crack passwords.

    Please read this carefully, you should already have done so:

    Your friend has two choices:

    1. Sort it out with the provider of the blogspace.
    2. Forget it and create another one.

    Howdy.

    If the friend still has access to there webhost cpanel, then just get them to uninstall the wordpress in fantastico.

    then re-install a fresh wordpress and thus they have there blog back.
    and make sure that they use a more complex password this time around.

    cheers

    Nice thought Acid~, but I think that he is locked out period.

    The usual problem with this sort of nonsense is that people set up an account. They get the password prompt and set something trivial, or even worse identifiable to them

    They answer the password recovery questions honestly

    They trust schoolchums and worplace colleagues............or, incredibly, relatives.

    Then they wonder why they get "hacked".............................

    Yeah, the trouble with being devious with security questions and passwords is the old memory. I set up my halifax online acount not long ago, then promptly got locked out because I couldn't remember what variant I had used on "Name of first school". D'oh!
    If the world doesn't stop annoying me I will name my kids ";DROP DATABASE;" and get revenge.
