Remove login

edited September 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hello! I'm using vanilla for my website and as the users already have to log themselves to access a restricted area where the forum is, I would like to modifiy the forum so that there is no need for them to log twice. I would like that all the users that are in the restricted part of my website get the "members permissions" without the need to log once again on the forum. I hope that I've been clear enough for you to understand my question. Thank you very much for your help

    This is effectively the same topic as this one: how-to-allow-guest-to-post.

    You may like to check it out, not that there's been many answers yet.

    That depends if each user in the restricted area has a seperate login or not?

    I think he wants to integrate the login--like Mark's example with Wordpress.

    So in fact, each user has a seperate login. Each user has its own username and password and with that I do a simple login. I set a session variable $_SESSION['name']=$username and check on each page if this variable is set or not. Therefore I would like to avoid the user to log in once again to post news on the forum. So the users are not guests as they are already registered.I wonder if it would be possible to combine the login to my restricted area and the login to the forum using the same username and password for both.
