    Hi there,

    I am trying to create a bridge to link a custom made script to use the same login info from the forum (user + password) and I am having a bit of difficulty to locate the MySql table where the password is stored?

    Can anyone help me with this? Many thanks in advance!!!

    xf_user_authenticate, but you should be verifying using the XF framework itself if possible, as the authentication methods may change and may vary from user to user.

    @Mike Thank you! Is there a manual somewhere or more info where I can read a bit more and not to bother you with questions like this?

    @Mike can you please advise how is this user authentication works? I am trying to figure out where is the actual password stored and how is encoded in mysql? I only find a remember key and I looked everywhere...

    Basically, I have a custom script that I want to bridge the user login area with the forum account details.
