How to detect a user outside the forum

    I am still using VB 3.7 although am preparing my new XF.

    When using VB I can detect a user logged in the forum but participating in other sections of my web. For exemple a user can post a comment on an article without logging in again.

    I don't know if I am explaining myself clearly.

    I can do that with these lines of code:

    $_SESSION["forero"] = $vbulletin->userinfo['username'];

    Is there a way to do the same in XF?

    Thank you!

    Thank you!

    Do you know if it is compatible with XF 1.3?

    Should be yes.

    I am trying to print my forum nickname using your application but I must be doing something wrong:

    $sdk = new XenForoSDK;
    $loggedIn = $sdk->isLoggedIn();
    if($loggedIn) {
    echo 'Logged In';
    } else {
    echo 'Guest';
    // Get current user
    $user = $sdk->getUser();
    echo $user;
    Thank you for your help @Vincent Gabriel
