Would be nice feature to add salt support for sha1 also, that would make it possible to do some auth against SMF forum database for example

Thanks

    SHA1 does not have a salt. What is commonly called a salt is actually just characters added at specific places in the password (i.e. beginning or end).

    Such encryption mechanisms are non-standard, and we don't try to support non-standard encryption mechanisms. There are just too many possibilities.
