Topic: Login integration: Logging in on an existing site and punBB
After implementing registration integration (See: http://punbb.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=17964 ), i'd like to also implement login integration.
I've seen many threads and tutorials about this but most were about login integration by starting out with punBB and building a site around that.
We have an existing site with accounts which are now also injected into the punbb_users table upon registration, but when someone logs in on our site that user will only get logged onto the website and not yet punbb.
Once a user is logged in we can fetch the username and password using php.
I'd like to know how to use those variables to also log into the forums when a user goes into the forums and if this would be the way to do it in our situation or if there is another (better?) way. Does anyone know any tutorials/documentation/wiki/thread regarding doing it this particular way or can someone perhaps explain how to accomplish this?
So in short we're starting out with an existing website with an existing log in system and we want to integrate punBB into the process instead of starting out with punBB and build around it.
