You might think this is another question about integrating bbPress with WordPress, but it’s not! I’m building a new website, and I would like to use bbPress as the support forums for it. The website has it’s own users table and stores the usernames as a varchar(255) and the passwords as varchar (255). All passwords are stored as sha1 hash. Basically what I want to do is to only have one place to login, that being on the main site, when the login is successful it’ll also set a cookie so the user may also use the bbPress forums. I would also like to use the avatar people upload to that site for the avatars on the forum. So here’s a few questions:
1. Is this even possible to set the cookie for bbPress from the login outside of bbPress?
2. Where should I start looking or poking?
3. For the avatars where should I start looking?
Thank you very much and if you need more information about my setup, please ask!!
