Good job ,
and also for those people who forgot their wordpress passwords and doesn't have any access to their email to reset their wordpress password ,
They can edit password part in phpmyadmin , 
but , They must set the function to MD5 and delete the hashed previous password and set the new password.
password of wordpress by default is encrypted with salt arguments and never been cracked.
after changing your password to MD5 and login again to your admin panel you can change your password again and this time , it will be encrypted like default with salt arguments.
