Looking for a specific part of the code

edited May 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I'm setting up Lussumo as part of a summer camp's webpage. It's supposed to be a forum where children who have attended the camp can talk about their camp experiences and get in touch with friends they met at camp. For legal liability reasons, this camp already uses an option in their registraration software where parents can give permission for a child to access the page and then one user name and one password per child is e-mailed to the parents e-mail address. They already have scripts and a database they hacked together that allow the children to log in to the page and then allow the camp to monitor their on-line activities. My problem is that I need to get Lussumo to use the existing database to check usernames and passwords but use the Lussumo database for everything else and I'm having difficulty FINDING the exact part of the script where it verifies identities and passwords. If anyone knows where that is, I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks much. ~Ian

    You need to grab the beta copy of v1 (either through the svn or the prerelease links) which includes marks new framework called People. This deals with all the user based authentication and whatnot. Depending how php savvy you are you should be able to work out what needs doing. You may also note that the users table pointer is a config in the new version (look at settings.php i think), so if you copied all the necessary vanilla user table fields into your existing user table it might just cut out a ton of work for you.

    Mini is right on the money. The pre-release version of Vanilla 1 is available here: And for more information on how to integrate Vanilla with your existing system, read this: You will most likely have some more questions after reading that, so come on back here and ask away when you're ready :)
