Authentication Integration

edited October 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
We're building a site where users will have profile and the ability to post and share pieces of writing. A forum will be a big piece of the site but we're trying to find a package that will allow us to easily integrate the existing user profiles and carry sessions into the forum without having to re-authenticate. Can Vanilla do this?

    Vanilla's user management module is completely removable/swappable providing you give it the necessary tools to work out if a user is valid or not. Assuming you're pretty php savvy you should check out the library/People folder to see how the various bits and pieces work at the moment. You'll notice that the authentication module which vanilla is told to use is part of the configuration options in the appg/settings.php file. You can point this to something other than the default (people.authenticator.php i think) assuming the file you replace it with contains the necessary functions to produce the correct responses. Alternatively you could build your site round the People system (depending how far down the line you are)

    I hope that helps a little.
