Don't know if this is possible (or practical). I added a xenforo forum to an existing (just built, actually) web site. The site is open and requires no login or authentication. However, I am working on adding a classmates directory (it is a site for my HS graduating class.... 1966) and that is implemented via php and a mysql db. Given that folks might put some personal info into their bios and profiles and since I want to restrict what each user can do to creating, modifying and deleting their own record, some sort of authentication is needed. I have created a simple authentication system on my test version of the class directory but want to avoid having folks maintain two sets of credentials, one for the web site and one for the forum.
Is it possible to sync the two? If so, has anyone actually done this?
