external registration & login

Dear community;

I'm thinking about buying a license of Xenforo, but first let me explain what the forum CMS should be able to work with.

I've got a script where users register. Data gets insert into my database. This script offers the user an option to get an forum account while registration. Then user can log into using another script of me. If user is logged into he can click on a link to the forum and he should get logged into forum automatic (in case of he wants to have an account for forum by registration).
So my main questions are:

-is it easy to add user accounts into the database of xenforo
-does xenforo offers an external login (not things like hidden forms where I post user login details into :) )
-can I deactivate the registration & viewable login of xenforo (so users can only register and log into forum using my scripts)

All the best;

There is no web accessible API. You would need to access the underlying classes dedicated to users/logging in via code.

There are various third party bridges and integrations but in your case it sounds as if it's going to be unique to your site anyway, so they wouldn't be of much use.
