Syncing site account creation with Vanilla account creation
Hello, I have a website that requires users to sign up for an account to use many of the features. Of course, vanilla requires a password as well. I'd like to integrate the two so that users need only sign up once and have access to all parts of the site. The easiest way to do this is probably inserting a row into the Vanilla user table when a new site account is created. My only concern is password encryption; How can I be sure that the passwords are being encrypted the same way by my site and Vanilla? I want to make sure I write my INSERT command correctly. A problem with this technique is that it will still require separate sign ins for the site and Vanilla because of sessions and cookies and stuff. Maybe the best way to get around this is to get rid of my site's user table and have it use the Vanilla user table for the whole site. But how can I set up the other pages in my site to use the Vanilla session? Are there classes for this purpose? I'm having a hard time interpreting the code... could use some pointing in the right direction. Thanks for your time! Andrew
