Automatic (frontend) user login?

Hi Folks,

I have Vanilla installed behind a membership user login. Members log into this area using their username and password (php form handler script). Within this area we have a number of sections the member can elect to use. They don't need to log into any of these sections as they are already logged in to the section.

However after setting up Vanilla (fantastic forum it is too!) I can't find a method of logging them into vanilla forum automatically.

If when they log into the members area (step 1 above), I were to session register their username and password. Is there some way I could then automatically have Vanilla automatically grab these values, check them against the Vanilla member table and permit access if a match is found - just like the manual member login does?

I realise they would have to register initially, but following registration, could this be done?

(PS have tried to post this in the Developers category but didn't have permission).

many thanks,
