jsConnect backward

I am trying to do the opposite of what jsConnect does. I have a website and i want to check the people who visit my website that if they are online in vanilla forums. based on that, after the user is been authorized, i want to get the smart ID in order to retrieve the roles. i would appreciate any help in this regards.

    You could look at what JsConnect does and do the same on your website. Apart from retrieving the User details which relies on Vanilla's database, the rest of JsConnect plugin can be easily adapted to other sites.

  • I have, in my particular situation jsConnect allow me to add my users and their roles in vanilla forums. i dont want to have my users sign up once again, i want the users in vanilla forums to use my website. I can grab their email address and based on that maybe get their role ID's but i want something more secure. any one who knows the email address could submit the email and use my website.

    I know what you mean. Vanilla JsConnect uses a signature to validate the messages with the clients, you should probably do the same.
